Bach Ma national park is the best place to hike in Thua Thien Hue province, central Vietnam. The day hike offers very beautiful forest and rivers, some lovely (but cold) swimming holes, and fantastic views from the top. The trail down to the 5 lakes is steep & difficult but there are good ropes in place, bring some decent shoes & be prepared to get wet feet.
