Ba Na is located on Chua Mount in the Truong Son mountain chain, around 1,487m above the sea, in Hoa Vang District, 30km from the centre of Danang City


Discovered by the French in 1901, Ba Na was built into a famous resort in Indochina at that time. In 1919, the French colonists established a hill station at the summit of Ba Na. In recent years, a tourism resort has been re-established at the site with hotels and guesthouses. Each one has its own flower garden with many types of aristocratic flower that Frenchmen left.


A modern system of cable cars helps the visitors get a spectacular view, very miraculous and attractive while enjoying a feeling of flying in the blue sly amidst the clouds and wind. All worries of life will likely disappear, giving place for pleasures and happiness. Ba Na is now a famous tourist site in central Vietnam.


Ba Na resort is part of the Ba Na-Nui Chua nature reserve, with a total area of 8,838ha. The nature reserve has two main natural vegetation types: lowland evergreen forest and lower montane evergreen forest. Up to 543 species of vascular plant have been recorded at the nature reserve, among them 12 species listed in the Red Data Book of Vietnam, such as Dalbergia cochinchinensis, Decussocarpus fleuryi, Melanorrhoea usitata and Dipterocarpus grandiflorus, etc.


The nature reserve has 61 mammal species, 178 bird species and 17 reptile species, 6 amphibian species, 33 fish species and 126 butterfly species.
