Lang Son (VNA) – Mau Son tourism site in the northern mountainous province of Lang Son has been cleaned up thanks to efforts to raise public awareness to protect the environment at the tourist attraction.

Various popularisation programmes have been run such as “Green Sunday” and “Mau Son youth join hands to conserve the environment”. Volunteers and locals have collected rubbish around the site at weekends and on holidays when tourists flock to the site.

According to the Mau Son tourism site management board, from the outset of the year, Mau Son welcomed some 75,000 visitors who left a lot of trash and waste during their trips.

The board said that it will promote popularisation work to ensure a clean environment at this tourist attraction.

Located 30 kilometres northeast of Lang Son city, Mau Son is home to the Tay, Dao, and Nung ethnic minorities. The mountain boasts beautiful landscapes, clean air, and cool weather year-round.

Tourists often flock here to enjoy its beautiful streams and waterfalls as well as to occasionally experience snow in winter.
