Located in Son La province, at a distance of 200 kilometers from Hanoi, Moc Chau Plateau is 1,050 meters above the sea level, with an area of about 80 kilometers in length and 25 kilometers in width. The plateau is one of the most famous destinations of the northwest region for tourists owing to its cool climate almost all year round
Moc Chau Plateau is famous for a large herd of milk cows, immense tea hills, big gardens of plum and apricot – tree, and large pastures of about 1,600 hectares. Climate is a special tourism resource of this place. Usually, the medium temperature is just 200C, with cool summer and dry winter. The autumn and spring in Mo Chau is the season of tea and pine tree. That is the time when the whole plateau will be covered with a beautiful and fresh green color.
A glass-bottomed bridge named Bach Long (White Dragon) was recently inaugurated in Moc Chau and it has immediately become a new tourist attraction.
Measuring 2.4 metres in width and 632 metres in length, 290 metres of which crosses the mountain cliff while 342m bends along the mountain side, the newly inaugurated Bach Long Bridge looks like a winding white dragon embracing the mountains and forests of Muong Sang. Its floor is made from super tempered glass imported from France.
Bach Long Bridge offers impressive panoramic views of spectacular mountain landscape. While looking down from the glass bridge, visitors will be thrilled with the view of a 150m deep abyss.
Bach Long is the third glass bridge in Vietnam, following Tinh Yeu (Love) Bridge, also in Moc Chau, and Rong May (Cloud Dragon) in Lai Chau Province.
Opening to visitors from April 30, Bach Long Bridge was declared the world’s longest glass bridge by Guinness World Records in late May. In addition, it has been recognised by the Guinness World Records (GWR) as the longest glass-bottomed cliffside path, measuring 327m, and by the World Record Association (WRA) as the world’s longest glass-bottomed bridge.
