To get there, taking the road from Duong Dong towards Bai Thom and turn off toward Ganh Dau, the National park becomes more apparent the closer you get to Ganh Dau Village.
Walking Trails are limited, although it is a great way to experience the national park there is a good walking trail 5kms before Ganh Dau, where the going is relatively easy and trail wide enough to take in the surrounding environment. Walking is a particularly pleasant way to escape the heat, as the vegetation provides cover from the heat of the sun. Taking the same road mentioned previously towards Ganh Dau and 100m after the 5km Ganh Dau road marker on the left hand side you’ll find an opening in the national park with a clearly defined walking trail which continues for a couple of kilometers. Moreover, besides the 5km Ganh Dau marker, the actual trail is not sign posted.
