Destinations: Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam

The Cuc Phuong NP lies in northern Vietnam. It is a scenic forested limestone upland around 120km SW of Hanoi. There is a national park HQ that organises guides and excursions to the main sites. One can stay right in the park as there is a simple but more than adequate guesthouse and a restaurant. The staff are very helpful. Special wildlife includes the rare primate Delacour's Langur and Red-collared Woodpecker. It is a place to take one's time, walking and trekking in search of wildlife, with mornings and evenings definitely best.
