After nearly three years' infrastructure upgrading, Bach Ma (White Horse) National Park in central Thua Thien-Hue province reopened to visitors in late April.

The 22,031ha park is located near Hue city and around 680km from Hanoi.

The highest point in the park, Mount Bach Ma, is 1,450m above sea level.

Visitors have been coming to Bach Ma since the 1930s, when the French colonialists built a hill resort here to escape the heat and humidity of the plains during the summer months.

Its rich flora and fauna attract many tourists. Bach Ma is home to 233 species of birds and 55 species of mammals besides more than 500 species of plants.-VNA
