Surf the clouds on Bach Moc Luong Tu mountain peak

Bach Moc Luong Tu in Northern Vietnam provides trekkers with the opportunity to revel in a dreamy environment of clouds, fog, and sunlight, as captured by photographer Hoang Tung.

Bach Moc Luong Tu, also known as Ky Quan San, is the fourth highest peak in Vietnam and the second highest in Lao Cai Province after Fansipan. Previously cultivated by the H’Mong ethnic minority, the mountain has attracted trekkers in recent years.

Starting from Sang Ma Sao Commune, Bat Xat District, Lao Cai Province, it normally takes two to three days to conquer Bach Moc Luong Tu.

Visitors to Bach Moc Luong Tu in June will see H’mong farmers tending their terraced rice fields, an emblem of northwestern Vietnam.

Viewing the spectacular sunrise from Muoi mountain, at a height of 2,840 m, is another must-do experience.

Since temperatures atop Muoi peak are consistently mild, a sweater, gloves, and a warm hat are needed to hit Bach Moc Luong Tu.

Spectacular backdrops can make for a stunning profile picture.

Small trails skirting the abyss afford a thrill.
