Ben En National Park

Ben En National Park is situated in Nhu Xuan District, Thanh Hoa Provice.

This landscape is breathtaking, with its hills, mountains, rivers and the lake looks similar to Halong Bay.

During the 1970s the park was often empty as very few visitors frequented it. However, since it was made into a national park, scientists and tourists alike have frequented the place.

This park is located in Nhu Thanh and Nhu Xuan districts, 36km from Thanh Hoa City. It is firstly established in 1992, and then expanded to now encompass an area of about 16,634 hectares, including 8,544ha of primary and recovered forest. This place is not only a protected breeding ground of many rare creatures, but also an attractive destination for ecotourism with its poetic and majestic sceneries.


Ben En national Park has a wide and diverse system of lakes, caves, mountains and forest that is utilized to develop ecotourism. The two biggest lakes here are Ben En Lake and Muc Lake. While Ben En Lake has a tranquil feel with cool and fresh air, Muc Lake is a somehow-more-exciting destination for the many types of animals like fish and bird that populate the caves and islets of the lake.  Forests in Ben En are rich with a vast number of valuable woods such as green ironwood and mahogany.
