Ta Lien pinnacle requires at least three days and two nights to climb. The trip to Ta Lien Son is difficult. Sometimes you’re in the gap at the edge, while other times you have to cut through the dense forest. When you get deeper into the depths, the road becomes smaller and more sloped. The crowds of old trees, lush white tea leaves, scarlet maple leaf, or green carpet beautiful and magnificent splendor on top of Ta Lien, on the other hand, will be a lovely present that will make up for the troubles that you have gone through.

The climbing terrain is described as not too difficult, with a resting place reached in 5 to 6 hours. It will take around an hour to reach the summit. However, due to the path to the summit being covered in bushes and thorns, the wind is quite strong and the temperature is hot again, so you will have a difficult time reaching the top. Because this is a beautiful location, you must prepare your stuff, including sleeping bags, tents, cooking equipment, and water.
