Cat Tien National Park is situated within the territories of 3 provinces Dong Nai, Binh Phuoc and Lam Dong. Cat Tien National Park has total area of 70,548 ha and the largest part belongs to Dong Nai province.

Cat Tien National Park has diverse ecological system which is consisted of many species in the Park listed in Red Book of Endangered Animals, especially Java rhino.

The park also has wide range of natural scenes: hill, river, flat fields and waterfalls, which offer the great potential for tourism, especially adventure travel and nature discovery travel. In rainy season, the gentle streams become the huge torrents of water which pour to the big stone flags making up a spectacular scene.

Cat Tien not only has the breathtaking scenery but also has unique climate due to its location in the transition zone of mountainous and plain climate. The terrain is covered with rivers and spring streams, which makes the forest kept intact and gathers most of the lowland forest in the south. This is typical forest for moist tropical lowland ecosystem. The forest has many precious types of trees such as lentils, red wood. There are more than 1,362 species of vascular plants, hundreds of medicinal plants and 133 species of orchids. Fauna include 62 species of animals, 121 species of birds, in particular some endangered species such as rhino, green ibis, crocodiles, red-hair pheasants, etc.

In addition, archaeologists found a temple of mascot of Phu Nam culture on top of A1 Hill (Quang Ngai commune, Cat Tien district, Lam Dong province) in the watershed of Dong Nai river. The temple was built with crude brick, pedestal, door frame, pillars made of granite stone with carved motifs; the Linga was made of gold or of silver with gold seal. A Linga-Yoni with 2.1 meter high was found to be the largest couple in South East Aisa and more than 100 pieces of gold carved with the ancient time’s activities and symbols: dancers, warriors, elephants, cows, lotus, etc.

In 1978, the park was divided into 2 zones: South Cat Tien and West Cat Tien. The area of Cat Loc in the north of Cat Tien was strictly reserved because of the existence of Java rhino. However, in 2011, International Fund of Nature and Internation Rhino Preservation Fund officially recognized the extinction of Java Rhino in Vietnam. Another appeal of Cat Tien National Park is the giant bulls with quantity of 70-80 individuals, which are also in danger of extinction due to illegal hunting and loss of inhabitation caused by deforestation.

In 2004, 38 crocodiles from Thailand were left to live in Bau Sau in the middle of the forest in order to increase biographical diversity.

Cat Tien was recognized as the World’s Biosphere Reserve, and Bau Sau wetland area was also recognized as the 1,499th Ramsar in the world and the second Ramsar in Vietnam by Ramsar Convention Secretariat.

Cat Tien National Park is about 150 km from Ho Chi Minh City through 20 highway. Cat Tien has been developed with many tourism activities such as hiking, bird observation, camping, sailing, adventure travel, etc., which attracts more and more both domestic and international tourists.
