La Holista - February Bonus Monthly Hike at Nui Dinh @ La Holista

Registration link: https://forms.gle/iXhuGQ5NqdRiTjMh7

Dinh Mountain, also known as Bong Lai (Heaven) Mountain, is located just over 30 kilometers from the famous beach town of Vung Tau and about 90 kilometers from HCMC.

The foot of the mountain, situated along National Highway 51 in Kim Dinh Ward of Ba Ria Town, is covered in a dense forest of lush green foliage and rugged outcrops. The path leading to the mountain is lined with many kinds of trees. There are not many houses but scattered around are Buddhist pagodas and temples, a peaceful change of pace from the noisy city.

The hike:

The hike is 7km long (3.5 km each way), covers 500 meter of elevation, and will take us from the bottom of the mountain to a rock formation at the top with a gorgeous view of the surroundings and back to the parking lot passing by a gorgeous and peaceful pagoda.

The ascending and descending part of the hike will take us around 1 hour and 45 minutes each way. The path is in the jungle covered by trees and in some parts there will be a larger walking path. The route will be lightly signaled, however we will try to keep the group as united as possible.

We will have a front group leader who will be able to pace and guide you during the hike and a back sweeper.

The hike is quite technical and challenging but accessible to most with intermediate fitness level - participants should make sure they are able to walk uphill and downhill for at least 3/4 hours.

In this humid and tropic jungle mountain there will be rocks and slippery bits, so hiking shoes or hiking boots are necessary. If you don't have any, please make sure you have at least shoes with a decent grip and not too old, definitely no converse, please also do not wear jeans.

Regarding the famous waterfalls, they are empty during the period from January to July.

Regarding the famous waterfalls, depending on the rain, we estimate that there should be enough water in them to have a refreshing dip. Please bring swimwear or / and a change of clothes (we often jump in with our clothes on). 

Well-behaved dogs can join the hike, free of charge. 

There will be jungle mosquitos; we recommend wearing long pants or high socks and using mosquito repellants if you are particularly sensitive.
