Hon Ba Mountain is located in Cam Lam District, Khanh Hoa Province, 50km north of Nha Trang. The area has a temperate climate and boasts primitive forests hundreds of years old so it is an ideal place for those who want to discover wild, natural beauty.

Hon Ba Nature Reserve

The beauty of the mountain is compared to a fairy hiding in the misted forest. The top of Hon Ba Mountain is 1600 metres above sea level. In summer, temperature here is just around 18 degree.

The nature reserve covers 19,000 hectares. The reserve is home to 592 plant species and 255 kinds of animals, including 100 rare fauna and flora species listed in the Red Book of Endangered Species.

Tourists come to enjoy the feeling Hon Ba mingle with the clouds of heaven, watch the sun rise from the horizon far away. The highlight tourist attraction here is the monument of Dr. Wood A.Yersin, as noted, this is the place to Yersin been in research and rare medicinal plant.

Don’t forget to have a look a wooden house of the famous French doctor, Alexandre Yersin (1863-1943) who opened the path to the peak of the mountain 100 years ago. The two-floor wooden house covering a total area of 100m2 was restored in 2004. Now it is a library with many objects of great historical value, such as a stone table, chair and bed. However, we were mostly impressed by the garden of medicinal herbs with two hundred-year-old green tea trees (camellia sinensis).

On the way to Hon Ba Mountain, you can stop at Suoi Nguon Tourist Area at a height of 300m where we had a delicious meal of grilled chicken, while listening to the murmur of streams running through banana and durian forests and looking at the view of Nha Trang in the distance.
