The April 30th holiday is coming, where to go to be airy, deserted, cool but not too expensive is the concern of many families. Cuc Phuong National Forest will be an ideal place for those who have not yet found a place to rest during this holiday, especially at the moment for those who want to go butterfly hunting because they are on the “office”.
1. How to move to Cuc Phuong forest
From Hanoi to the ticket gate of Cuc Phuong National Park about 110km, you go another 15km to the campsite. The road is infinite, just follow the national highway 1A. In addition, because half of the way is a highway, it only takes about 2 hours to drive.
2. Cost to go to Cuc Phuong
In addition to the cost of preparing food and drinks when going on a picnic, the entrance ticket will be 60,000 VND/adult, 20,000 is the entrance fee for the car and children will be free of charge. Normally, it will only take these fees, so if you are charged extra, be sure to ask before paying.
3. What’s in Cuc Phuong forest
This April is the butterfly season in Cuc Phuong, very diverse and colorful. On sunny days, butterflies often gather in large swarms and paint a beautiful picture of nature. The deeper into the forest, the more butterflies there are and this is an opportunity for visitors to take beautiful pictures.
Not only butterflies, Cuc Phuong forest is a primeval forest, so the air here is extremely cool, sometimes at the campsite you can also see beautiful peacocks. If you see them, just look at them, don’t do anything about them. In addition to the poetic landscape, Cuc Phuong National Park also has an animal sanctuary for children to visit and explore.
Cuc Phuong butterfly hunting experience:
– Butterflies will fly out a lot when it’s sunny. Therefore, if you are going to go butterfly hunting in Cuc Phuong, please watch the weather carefully.
– You should go early to catch many beautiful moments.
– Note that Cuc Phuong butterfly season is also the time when the forest is very deep, so be prepared in advance.
Overnight Cuc Phuong
Going back on the day of Cuc Phuong is completely possible but quite tired, so if you have the conditions, you can stay in Cuc Phuong forest. Specifically, the Ho Mac area has a house on stilts, a private room, and a convenient camping place.
In addition, Xom Bong is about 20km from the entrance gate – the last point in the Cuc Phuong forest route, there are also accommodation and food services. There is also a full range of accommodation services, but this area does not have electricity, only the generator runs for about 4 hours every night, and if there are too few guests, they won’t run the generator.
If you want to camp overnight in Cuc Phuong forest, the Bong hamlet area is quite suitable, but this area only runs a generator and does not have a tent rental service, so please take the initiative to bring it. Also, please prepare a full backup charger, mosquito repellent, insects because at night, in the forest there are quite a lot of mosquitoes and insects.
In addition, you can stay at a resort near the entrance like Cuc Phuong Resort And Spa. However, the road from the gate and to the forest is quite long, so you need to consider transportation. In addition, remember to book a room in advance if you come to visit on the occasion of April 30.
