Upstream discovering the Huong River 

The Huong River is a priceless gift that nature has given to Hue. Understanding the river will contribute to the preservation of the Huong River forever as it is the priceless heritage of the ancient capital land.

Visitors go upstream the Huong River, and land to discover

Stemming from that idea, young officials and civil servants working in nature preservation have organized upstream discovery journeys for those who love Hue and want to learn about the Huong River.

The journeys bring visitors to discover the legendary river from many angles: Who named the river? The values of the Huong River, its landscapes, cultural, and historical relics, and current issues affecting its water environment and vegetation on its banks.

These exciting discovery journeys have been launched since November 2018.
