ďCat Tien National Park is estimated as the reserve of natural resources in Vietnam with lots of rare, specious and endemic genes of fauna and flora, as plentiful site for scientists, domestic and foreign tourists.The natural area of Cat Tien National Park is 71.920ha wide.

The National Park is part of the wet tropical forest complex and one of the specious natural forests remaining in Vietnam. That is why this area is significant not only in Vietnam but in the world as well. The diversity of the Park has been recognized by WWF when this international organization selected the Park as one of 200 global ecological zones including the land and its water area with its wellknown biological diversity.

In 2001 Cat Tien National Park has been listed by UNESCO as the 411th biosphere Reserve Zone in the world.Ē (

Cat Tien is about 160km north of Hi Chi Minh City. Itís not the easiest place to get but when you reach the Dong Nai river and board a small and noisy motorboat, you are in another world. The vegetation is lush and you can hear all sorts of bird songs. Itís a bit like being in a documentary about a tropical forest.

I hope you will like the nice frangipani flower taken after a downpour (f16 1/60thsec zoom at 70mm cropped in Photofiltre).

Iím very pleased with the numerous comments on all the up-loads from the village of Darahoa. Thank you very much.

Hoping the next few up-loads about Cat Tien National Park will also be of interest to you.
Have a nice evening and pleasant week-end,
