Tam Dao National Park is located entirely in Tam Dao mountain range, a large mountain range of over 80km long, 10-15km wide running towards the Northwest – Southeast, in territory of three provinces Vinh Phuc, Thai Nguyen and Tuyen Quang. Tam Dao mountain range has more than 20 peaks of over 1000m high above sea level in which the highest ones is Tam Dao Nord of 1592m. The terrain here is characterized by sharp peak, sloping steep, deep and thick separation. Mount Tam Dao has long been covered by a thick layer of vegetation diversifying in species and biotic communities and ecosystems. The main factors contributing to this diversity include soil, climate, etc.
Tam Dao National Park with diversity of soil and climate has created different terrains and variety of ecological sub-regions… Therefore, the forest flora and fauna system here is very rich (about 2000 species of plant, 840 species of animal), many rare and endemic species.
Tam Dao National Park proves its full potential value along with increase in investment of State, authorities and communities in the region should see the benefits and responsibilities in maintaining this valuable property.
Tam Dao National Park is located in humid and tropical climate region. High and long running mountain range creating two distinct eastern and western slopes together with different annual rainfall have contributed to different micro-climate. This is also an important factor in creation of two tropical belts.
The differences in soil and climate among regions along with the impact of mankind have created different micro-climates in this area. This is the favorable condition to create a Tam Dao National Park covering by dense vegetation diversifying in species and biotic communities and ecosystems.
Despite being a fledgling national park (established in 1996), Tam Dao National Park has become a significant biodiversity research site of Vietnam. It is also an interesting destination for those who want to discover the nature.
