Cat Tien National Park

Location: Cat Tien National Park is located in three provinces of Dong Nai, Lam Dong and Binh Phuoc.
Characteristics: This is a part of Dong Nai Biosphere Reserve recognized as Word Biosphere Reserve since 2001.

The park with an area of 70,548ha covering apart of three provinces, consists of Nam Cat Tien Protected Forest (39,108ha) in Dong Nai Province, extended part (26,970ha) of Lam Dong Province, and (4,470ha) of Binh Phuoc Province.

 

Diverisfied and Rich Ecosystem

The park treasures 1,362 plant species (440 timber species, 310 medicinal plants, 220 ornamental plant species, 133 orchid species). The fauna includes 62 animal species, 25 of which are listed in Viet Nam's Red Book; and 121 bird species, few of which are classified as rare species such as the white-necked cranes, Indian storks, pheasants (ga loi hong tia), ibis (co quam xanh), elephants, etc.

 

The park also has diversified landscapes: hills, alluvial grounds, flat large grounds, strong water currents. In the rainy season, mild springs turn out fierce ones with tremendous water flows on large stones. However, meandering waterfalls create lovely yellow sandy beaches like natural beaches. Legend has it that fairies frequented this place to enjoy the cool and clean water, so it is named Nam Cat Tien (Fairy Sand). In the middle of the large river stand several islands. On the islands are old trees alternating with large grass grounds, which are the ideal place for overnight camping.

 

Bau Sau Wetland (belong to the park) was recognized as Ramsar Site of the world in 2005.

 

 

Cultural and Historical Sites

Cat Tien has preserved from the past historical and cultural sites. In the past war, this place was a revolutionary base. Archaeologists have discovered remains of the Oc Eo culture dating from the 2nd to 7th centuries AD. Built at the peak of a hill near the Dong Nai River in Quang Ngai Commune, Cat Tien District, Lam Dong Province, the temple dedicated to deities belongs to the culture of Funan, a kingdom that was left unnoticed for over 1,300 years. Even now people still talk about the myths and legends associated with the construction of the temple.
