The administration of Thua Thien-Hue has allowed Song Da Thang Long Company to build a cable-stayed system for travel to the top of Mount Bach Ma in the central province.

The company plans to build the 4,000-meter-long system running from the foot to the peak of the mountain.
Currently, the 20-kilometer path up the mountain is narrow, treacherous and vulnerable to landslides.
Upon completion, the cable cars will serve tourists at Bach Ma National Park in the province’s Phu Loc District, around 700 km south of Hanoi and 1,000 km north of Ho Chi Minh City.
The national park is the heart of a vast green forest running from the East Sea to the border with Laos, endowed with 2,147 flora and 1,493 fauna species, of which 27 plant varieties and 66 animals are listed in Vietnam’s Red Book of endangered species.
