River Cruise and Mountain Trekking

Itinerary

After breakfast at the hotel, we will pick you and take a boat ride cruising to the floating village (fish farm) and Cham minority village to witness a weaving workshop which produces the colourful traditional wears (sarongs and towels). It is then back to Chau Doc for a visit to Chua Xu Lady’ s temple and cave pagoda at the foot of Sam Mountain.

After this we head to Sam Mountain – the highest mountain in the Mekong Delta. On the way there, you can enjoy the sights of the two rice fields along the road, and drop in for a short visit to a small Khmer village. You will then take a short walk up on mountain side to see the daily life of the mountain people, having lunch on the way.

Then you will visit Tuc Dup (the Two Million Dollar Hill), which is a bold hill deep in the Mekong Delta where between late 1968 and early 1969 it was defended against overwhelming odds. The defenders kept the full force of the American army at bay for 128 days of continuous bombardment. Two million dollars is said to be the cost of the firepower the Americans used in their vain attempt to capture this isolated stronghold.

Once here, explore freely around hidden caves interconnected by a labyrinth of natural tunnels and paths, under ground meeting rooms, hospital, living quarters, stores and command H.Q. (most have been fully restored). It is then back to Sam Mountain to admire the grand view of Mekong Delta from the summit, watching the sunset over Cambodia. Overnight stay at a hotel in Chau Doc.
