To go further than the common ecotourism spots, trekking through the national park is a highly recommended activity. A trek, which typically lasts between two to four hours, helps visitors experience the mountain's forest and waterfalls while enjoying some fresh air.

On the way back to Hanoi, it is a good idea to stop by the Dong Mo Lake, about 25 km east of the Ba Vi National Park. It is a great place to watch sunsets. Beside its great views, this 200-hectare (500-acre) lake is a spot favored by local fishermen confident of a good catch at all times.

To get to the lake, take the Thang Long Expressway, exit at Route 21A and keep going straight until you see the Dong Mo Resort sign.
