Mang Den is mysteriously beautiful. Indeed. You can calm down when you go to Khanh Lam Pagoda located in the lonely pine forest. I walked up the stairs from the asphalt to the temple. The stairs leading up and winding along the pine forest suddenly reminded me of the temple scene in Shaolin Temple that I had seen in swordplay movies. But here the air I feel is very real, very clear. The sound of the bell ringing in the vast mountains and forests gave me a feeling of calmness and purity.

When is the best season to visit Mang Den?

To me, Mang Den is beautiful in any season. Every season, I am still filled with emotions about Den bamboo shoots.

In the last days of the year, heaven and earth are in harmony, winter and spring are reuniting, and Mang Den is more beautiful than ever because the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom.

Mai Anh Dao is planted along the town roads. From the pass to the district administrative center, Dak Ke lake, Khanh Lam pagoda.

Everywhere you look, you will be fascinated and captivated by the charming cherry blossom petals of a bright pink color. The peach branches move gracefully with the wind like the hands of a young woman in a passionate dance.

The surface of Dak Ke Lake reflects curved flower petals, as seductive as curled eyelashes over clear eyes. The flower’s hands stretch out like a graceful spring girl looking in the mirror. Mang Den is changing his shirt color. Spring is knocking on the door here.

Faced with the surprising beauty of the blooming plum blossom season, I feel like I don’t have enough words to say everything about Mang Den.

Mang Den is not sparkling brightly, but it is the wildness of the mountains and forests that attracts visitors when they come here. During the cherry blossom season, people flock to Mang Den to hunt for flowers and take souvenir photos. The flowing ao dai, the scarves hanging loosely on the shoulders of the girls and sisters; The gorgeous wedding dresses of brides coming here make the small mountain town even more romantic.
