Construction on Mau Son Snow Mountain entertainment and ecotourism area began in Loc Binh District in the northern mountainous province of Lang Son on December 10.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the ecotourism area. 

The project, one of the largest in the province, is being funded by Mau Son Snow Mountain Joint Stock Company with a total investment of nearly VND3.5 trillion.

The first part of the project will be the 5.7km cable car, which will be able to carry 2,000 people per day (1.6 million people year year). It runs from Bang Khanh Commune to the Chan May area on the top of Mau Son Mountain and is expected to be put into operation in April 2018.

In addition, a range of other parts will be constructed as part of the project, including the entertainment towards outdoor activities; a resort depicting the French architectural imprints with 600 rooms ranging from two to five stars; a community cultural tourism area and a service area.

Vice Chairman of the Lang Son Province People’s Committee Ho Tien Thieu said that the project aims to build an ecotourism area to ensure harmony with nature. Varieties of valuable flowers and herbs from Mau Son forest will be bred and planted into large gardens.

With a beautiful environment and cool climate, the tourism area is expected to become a wonderful destination, attracting a large number of domestic and foreign visitors.

The project is also expected to create jobs for more than 2,500 local people, contributing to the region’s economic development.
