Ten cliffs in Vietnam
Having many cliffs places in Vietnam
The ideal spots to recreate those epic ‘Lion King’ scenes, but only if you have the nerve to put your best foot forward.
Take look ten cliffs in Vietnam!
Phu Quy Island, Binh Thuan Province
This cliff offers a bird’s-eye view of the island off the south-central province.
To get there, you have to climb Cao Cat Mountain, which rises 100 meters from the sea, to reach Linh Son Pagoda. Photo by Pham Luong.
Not far from Linh Son Pagoda are these rock formations that have stolen the hearts of many young Vietnamese people.
Some couples even choose this place to shoot their wedding photos. Photo by Tran Dinh Chinh
Ba Den Mountain, Tay Ninh Province
This is the “turtle’s head” on Ba Den Mountain, the roof of southern Vietnam.
You can either trek up the 986m mountain or take the cable car, which touches down at Ba Pagoda halfway up the mountain. JUSTPLAY18
From the pagoda, it’s another hour to reach the turtle’s head. Photo by Cuong Ly
Y Ty Commune, Lao Cai Province
Locals call this place the “waves of rocks.”
They can be found on Than Mountain in Y Ty Commune, Bat Xat District in Lao Cai Province, home to the famous town of Sa Pa. Bo Him, the author of this photo, said the “waves” stand around 2,400 meters above sea level. Photo by Bo Him
Also in Y Ty, photographer Manh Phi and his friends found this cliff when they were on their way to Ngai Ngau Thuong Village. Photo by Manh Phi
Pha Luong Mountain, Son La Province

Ta Xua Mountain, Yen Bai Province
Ta Xua is one of the most challenging peaks in Vietnam’s northwest, but it looks like the valley below with terraced fields and forests is worth the effort. Photo by Hai Dang
Ma Pi Leng, Ha Giang
A cliff overhanging a pass that looks down onto a river – sounds poetic, doesn’t it?
Unlike the eight cliffs mentioned above where you have to take a risk and stay completely calm, this place is much safer as there is now an observatory for visitors.
However, you’re after that adrenalin rush, climb over the fence and sit on the cliff like this girl. Photo by Nguyen Chi Nam.
Thach That District, Hanoi
If you want to make a scene, this is your stage. Though it might look dangerous, this cliff in an outlying district of Hanoi is the safest of all the ten cliffs mentioned in this listicle because it’s not steep and stands only five meters above the ground. Photo by Phu Nguyen
Quang Yen Town, Quang Ninh Province
Regardless of the tough path that takes through a forest and up two hills, many youngsters sre determined to make it up to this bizarre rock tower which looks like it could fall at anytime. Photo by Do Minh Duc
