Getting there & away
Bach Ma is 28km west of Lang Co and 40km southeast of Hué. The turn-off is signposted in the town of Cau Hai on Hwy 1A. The entrance is 3km along the narrow road into the park.
It’s another steep and meandering 16km on the sealed road from the gate to the summit and, unless you have your own vehicle or are willing to walk, you’ll need to hire private transport from the Visitor Centre. Walking takes about three to four hours down, so carry plenty of water and wear a hat, as there is little canopy protection on the lower part of the road.
There are buses to the park from Danang (US$3, two hours) and Hué (US$2, one hour). Local buses stop at Cau Hai, where xe om drivers can ferry you to the entrance. Cau Hai also has a train station (871 362; Loc Dien village), but the one daily service in either direction is slow and arrives/departs at antisocial times.
