Ba Vì mountain range
The Ba Vì mountain range (tên nôm: Núi Ba Vì, tên chữ:Núi Tản Viên) is a soil-limestone mountain range in Vietnam. It covers an area of about 50 km2 in Ba Vì, Lương Sơn and Kỳ Sơn districts. The Ba Vì mountain range is called "the lord of mountains" (núi chúa) in the Vietnamese spirit though it is not the highest mountain range in Vietnam.
There are many peaks in this range, but the most famous one is Tản Viên Peak. Tản Viên Mountain is 1,281 m high. In Vietnamese mythology, this mountain is the home of Sơn Tinh, the mountain god. However, the highest mountain in this range is Vua Peak (or Emperor Peak), which is 1296 m in elevation. A shrine to Ho Chi Minh is controversially located at the summit of this mountain.
At the western foot of the Ba Vì mountain range is the Đà river, while at the eastern edge is an artificial lake called Suối Hai, which is 7 km in length and 4 km in width.
