Vu Quang, in the Hà Tĩnh Province of Vietnam's North Central Coast, is an area of steep mountains and dense rainforest. It is a very wet, hot area, whose mountains trap moisture coming in from the South China Sea. This creates a very stable, but inhospitable climate. It rains continually in the rainy season, and in the dry season there is much fog; consequently most surfaces are algae-coated and slippery. The local hunters prefer to stay out of the forest, setting snares and using dogs to chase animals into more accessible areas.
Vũ Quang was used as a base by Phan Đình Phùng, the anti-colonial revolutionary, from 1885-96.
