Tri Ton: Ta Pa’s Pride

Ta Pa Mountain is a popular tourist destination because of its seven peaks named That Son which literally means “seven famous mountains.” Located at An Giang Province District, it is a breathtaking sight of majestic mountain ranges, cliffs, lake and overall natural beauty.


It is said that Ta Pa’s mountain ranges and cliffs look like castle walls which are one-of-a-kind, if not strange, but magnetic in their beauty. Rough rock pillars serve as feature to the whole structure and the rocks come in varying sizes and shapes, all adding to the mysterious beauty of the edifice.


At the peak of the mountain is the Ta Pa Lake which is famous for its deep, clear emerald colour. Although it only came to existence after a mining operation in the area, it intensified the inner beauty that the place already possesses. The rocks at the bottom create a rainbow of colours of blue, black, orange and yellow, all in different marvellous shades. At seventeen metres deep and the nearby mountains as view, it is a sheer thing of beauty.
