Ba Chuc adventure

For those a little adventurous, a full day excursion around the Nui Sam mountain to Ba Chuc is an interesting option. Locally known as US$ 2,000,000 Mountain, this impenetrable formation of large boulders hide the Viet Cong army while being blasted from the air by bombs and rockets. Command posts, dormitories, hospitals, supplies and canteens were all hidden from obvious sight by the builders and foliage. Today, visitors can walk through the labyrinth and view the dioramas of the various functions. Additional places of interest include the massacre of a whole village by the Khmer Rouge, a small crocodile farm, a museum, kiosks and restaurants. The Ba Chuc circuit is around an hour by motorbike from Chau Doc. The visitor’s path around the mountain is well signposted and the visit can be undertaken without a local guide. Visitors will pass Nui Sam/Sam Mountain and the Tre Su bird sanctuary en route so a full day adventure can be planned. Inquire at reception about the alternative route along the Tinh Bien/Cambodia border to Ba Chuc returning near the Sam Mountain range and main road from Tri Ton along which you can enjoy the refreshing tok lok/jelly palm fruit drink the area is noted for. A number of Khmer style temples will also be observed.A very worthwhile day out.
