Mekong Delta Tours sincerely introduce you the Cat Tien National park trekking 2 days tour
Cat Tien National Park is an important national park located in the south of Vietnam. It was protected initially in 1978 as two sectors, Nam Cat Tien and Tay Cat Tien. Another sector, Cat Loc, was gazetted as a Rhinoceros Reserve in 1992 upon the discovery of a population of the Vietnamese Javan Rhinoceros, an occasion that brought the park into the world’s eye. The three areas were combined to form one park in 1998.
The park also has impressive bird species including:
- Red Junglefowl
- Green peafowl
- Siamese firebacks (although found elsewhere, these are especially easy to see in the park)
- Germain’s peacock-pheasant
- Orange-necked partridge
- The great, oriental pied and the wreathed hornbills
- Bar-bellied, blue rumped, blue winged and other pittas
- Broadbills: including the black & red, dusky and banded species
- An endemic sub-species of the red-vented barbet
- Grey-faced tit babbler
- Woodpeckers: including pale-headed, white-bellied, black-and-buff, heart-spotted and the great slaty woodpecker
- Lesser adjutant birds, various herons and egret species
