Cuc Phuong spans two limestone mountain ranges and three provinces. Its highest peak is Dinh May Bac (Silver Cloud Peak) at 656m. In 1962 Ho Chi Minh declared this Vietnam’s first national park, saying: ‘Forest is gold’. Unfortunately, poaching and habitat destruction plague the park. Improved roads have led to illegal logging, and many native species – such as the Asiatic black bear, Siamese crocodile, wild dog and tiger – have now vanished from the area. Other wildlife is notoriously elusive, so manage your expectations accordingly.The park is home to the minority Muong people, whom the government relocated from the park’s central valley to its western edge in the late 1980s.
