Admiring Azaleas on Bach Ma Peak

TTH.VN - On the peak of Bach Ma Mountain, where the weather is mild all year round, the vibrant colors of flowers, leaves, and countless forest birds have always been an endless source of inspiration for photographers and those who wish to explore the pristine beauty of nature.

Through the lens of photographer Truong Vung, Thua Thien Hue Weekly would like to invite readers to take a stroll through the spring season on Bach Ma Peak and admire the myriad hues of azalea flowers, both vivid and unusual.

According to Truong Vung, Bach Ma National Park has planted numerous azalea plants on both sides of the road leading to Do Quyen Waterfall and at the airport area atop Bach Ma Peak as a result of learning new grafting and cultivation procedures. Along with the familiar blazing red azaleas, the diverse colors of the “queen of flowers” here captivate visitors, with the presence of pink-spotted white bell-shaped red azaleas, white bell-shaped red azaleas, white spotted pink red azaleas, and other rare varieties.

Returning to Bach Ma

“Standing here, you can capture the panoramic view of Hai Van pass, Tuy Van mountain, Cau Hai lagoon and even the magical light of Hue city…” - that was the smooth introduction of an author when he checked-in at Hai Vong Station on the top of Bach Ma mountain. After a temporary closure to repair the route from the foot of the mountain to its top, Bach Ma National Park has welcomed back visitors.

Uoi (Malva nut) season at the foot of Do Quyen (Rhododendron) Waterfall

In June, the S.macropodum tree forest in Bach Ma flickers with golden light at the foot of Do Quyen Waterfall. An entire forest area located on the La Son - Tuy Loan highway (passing through Nam Dong district) is brilliant with S.macropodum flowers. As fruit bearing season approaches, the forest rangers' footprints are imprinted on the old forest!

It seems that the late-blooming azaleas on the top of Bach Ma during the season change between Spring and Summer are waiting for the last travelers to come and enjoy the beauty of this flower species in the middle of nature.
