Bac Son is best known for its beautiful valley that deserves to be known as a green paradise on Earth. This valley is situated 250 miles south of Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital city, and it is an ideal place for agriculture. One interesting aspect about this valley is its incredibly high mountains which are about 500-1200 meters high. These mountains together with the valley’s paddy fields create that great scenic landscape that you can only see after climbing 500 steps to reach the peak of the mountain.
