Phung Hoang Son, or Co To Mountain, is the most beautiful among the several mountains of the That Son Range in the mountainous area of the Mekong Delta province of An Giang. The mountain is acclaimed as an ideal destination by pilgrims and tourists to experience the feeling of conquering the peak of a mountain and to take in a panoramic view of An Giang Province.
Co To Mountain is in Nui To Commune, Tri Ton District. It is about 5,800m long, 3,700m wide and rises 614 meters above sea level. Seen from afar, it looks like a phoenix, so people call the mountain Phung Hoang Son, which means “mountain of a phoenix”.
The That Son Range offers ancient relics, temples, pagodas and spectacular landscapes such as Cam Mountain, Ket Mountain, Van Linh Pagoda and Tuc Dup Hill. After experiencing all this, tourists should trek to the top of Co To Mountain.
It takes about 90 minutes to get to the top, longer if you stop to take pictures or bring small children. It is recommended to start the climb at 9 a.m. when the mist melts and the view is clear.
The path to the top of the mountain is a tortuous stone stairway winding up the mountain wall but shaded by dense green groves. Tourists should prepare equipment such as a mosquito net, hammock, flashlight, lighter and knife as well as dried food such as bread and noodles and some medicine. Do not forget water and a pair of good shoes.... Read more
