Luc Lac rock ledge – A new place for adventurers

Luc Lac (shaking) rock ledge in Da Chong mountain located in Minh Thanh ward (Quang Yen town, Quang Ninh province) is attracting many tourists, after the group of young people sharing photos recorded when climbing to the top. Luc Lac is located about 1,200 meters from Da Chong Mountain, 450 meters above sea level, and is known by Quang Ninh people as Myanmar’s Golden Rock.

The rock ledge nestled in the deep forests of Quang Ninh now attracts many young people to pose. When it comes to photography, this place looks more dangerous than it actually is.

After the famous rock ledge in Thach That (Hanoi) or Pha Luong peak (Moc Chau), young people recently rush to this place to check-in. If you just look through the pictures, many people will be overwhelmed and scared. In fact, the stone surface is very large and wide, enough for young people to create unique poses. Depending on the creativity and skillful selection of the photographer’s angle, impressive pictures are born with a multiplicity of danger to the reality.

It is possible to come to Luc Lac from Thac Mo ecotourism entrance or go by motorbike from pine hill – Lam Sinh monument about 20 minutes to forest then walk about 1 km. The road is difficult to travel, and not recommended to climb the cliff. Many experienced travellers coming to this place warn that the stone structure is quite weak and dangerous. They advise young people not to risk climbing the cliffs lying at the height of hundreds of meters just to have beautiful pictures.
