ĐÀ NẴNG — Đà Nẵng’s tourism department will introduce the Sơn Trà Sunset Tour next March, the newest tourism service on top of Sơn Trà Mountain.
The department said the tour would offer tourists the chance to enjoy a breathtaking sunset panorama and a bird’s eye view of Sơn Trà peninsula and a corner of the city from 500m above sea level. Tourists will be taken up the Mountain Tower on Saturdays and Sundays.
Activities including a BBQ party, music performances, and bar service will be available for visitors between 6pm and 9pm at the weekend.
Sơn Trà mountain, which is home to the 2,500ha Sơn Trà Nature Reserve, 10km from the city centre, is a popular tourist destination, with 10,000 tourists visiting the reserve every month.
The Đà Nẵng-based Centre of Biodiversity Conservation, GreenViet, also offers free tours for students and nature lovers to watch langurs and see the forest up close as part of an environmental education programme on Sundays.
The well-protected biodiversity also shelters nearly 300 red-shanked douc langurs, which were declared endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2013.
The government also approved an area of over 1,000ha in Sơn Trà Mountains as a National tourism site between 2025-30, and an eco-tour in the central coastal region with 3.5 million tourists per year.
The city has approved the plan to protect biodiversity in Sơn Trà Nature Reserve towards 2030. — VNS
