Ba Be National Park in the northern province of Bac Kan has been recognised as the third wetland of international importance (Ramsar) in Vietnam after Xuan Thuy National Park and Bau Sau in Cat Tien National Park.
Covering a total area of nearly 500ha, Ba Be National Park has one of the 20 most beautiful freshwater lakes in the world, which was also listed around the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEANS) heritage parks.
Ba Be is an important ecotourism area in the northeastern mountainous region with 21 popular tourist sites.
