To reach the summit of Ba Den, tourists need to take a 10-minute trip on a cable car over imposing landscapes of mountains and dense forests. They then need to climb a few dozen stone steps before reaching the peak and posing for cool Instagrammable photos amid a sea of clouds.
Ba Den Mountain is over 100 km to the northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. The 24 sq m complex covers an intricate system of mysterious caves, pagodas, and temples, making it a favourite venue for pilgrims. The Ba Den Mountain Festival in the first lunar month sees pilgrims come and pray for a prosperous and peaceful year ahead.
The Ba Den tourism site has been continually upgraded over recent years. With a cable car system, electric cars, and even a resort, it is now an ideal getaway for visitors.
The Ba Den tourism site welcomes millions of tourists each year. Ba Den Mountain alone welcomed over 500,000 pilgrims in 2019 and 2020./.
