Located in the east of Ba Vi Mountain Range in Son Tay District in Hanoi, Thien Son-Suoi Nga (Thien Mountain-Nga River) is famous for splendid sceneries with silver-carpet-like waterfalls and misty, dense forests on the mountain slopes.

One hour’s drive from center of Hanoi, the site is currently the weekend rendezvous for many Hanoians and tourists. It is said to be an ideal tourist destination for this summer.
Thien Son-Suoi Nga, tucked in the protection belt of Ba Vi National Park, is divided into three areas, with each area about two kilometers apart from the others.
The first part, called Ha Son, includes Tam Cap Waterfall and Ha Son Lake. Ha Son Lake is where the two waterfalls coming from the top of Tan Vien Mountain meet. There, tourists can take a boat cruise around the lake to admire the surroundings. Then, tourists can stroll around to discover many fauna species of the Ba Vi National Park to get closer to nature.
Villas on the mountain slopes are said to be good accommodation to live among the wildlife. There are also some restaurants to provide wild specialties to trekkers.
The next area, Trung Son, is considered to be the playground for people of all ages. Tramping along winding paths around lakes and on stone paths in the shades of seasoned green trees are nice experiences to escape the scorching heat of the summer in the city.
The highlight of the area that tourists should not miss is the 100-meters-high Cong Troi Waterfall.
Around the area scattered some guest houses nestled under dense groves that tourists can take a rest and enjoy the fresh air in the forest.
The last area is Ngoan Son with a panoramic view of Ba Vi Mountain. Shaded winding paths and bridges reflect themselves in the lake surface, decorating the surrounding area. The lakes there also attract many fishing lovers.
After spending a day and a night at the tourist site, on the way back to Hanoi on the next day, tourists should visit Son Tay Ancient Citadel and Mia Pagoda in Son Tay District to discover their old architecture.
