Ta Chi Nhu – the road to conquering the rooftop of Yen Bai

Ranked seventh amongst the top ten highest mountains in Vietnam, Ta Chi is a mountain top with a quite majestic landscape and diverse forest-based ecosystem.


Beautiful scenery on the road from the centre of Tram Tau district to Mo Chi. The terraced field is one of the “specialties” of this land.

Often called the rooftop of Yen Bai province, Ta Chi Nhu is located in Xa Ho commune, Tram Tau district. It is part of the Pu Luong massif of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range.

A camp site built for visitors by Mong people at an altitude of 2,400 meters above sea level.

The camp site is about 2.5km from the peak, this journey being the most beautiful stretch during the journey. Visitors can watch the sea at sunrise and sunset as well as the beautiful landscapes from the “dinosaur spine” and the mighty valleys of Pu Luong mountain massif.


The mountain sides are covered with the pink and purple colours of “Mat Rong” grass, a very special variety found in the locality.

Ta Chi Nhu is considered one of the most beautiful sunset views.

Many people climb to the mountain’s peak in the afternoon and see dawn at the camp site the next morning.

The most significant moment is when visitors reach the landmark at an altitude of 2,979m of Ta Chi Nhu.

A beautiful dawn scene.
