VIETNAM 2013 #157

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Ni B Đen means "Black Lady Mountain". It is a 996 metres (3,268ft) extinct volcano which rises from the flat Mekong Delta rice paddies and farmland. The mountain has almost the perfect shape of a cinder cone. It is a mountain found in the Tay Ninh Province of Vietnam.

To the Vietnamese the mountain is the center of a myth about B Đen, a local deity of Khmer origin. Today, it is a place of pilgrimage.

During the Vietnam War the area around the mountain has seen lots of actions because of the proximimity of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Ba Den Mountain is a few kilometers west across the Cambodian border. Many battles took place in the region.

Such a beautiful place and so sad to think of the troubled past. In this set I like V5 and V3 showing the happy feel of today.
