Ta Chi Nhu, the sixth highest mountain in Vietnam, is an ocean in the sky.
The mountain has several other names given by ethnic groups in the area, but adventurers call it “the ocean of clouds”.
These pictures taken from the mountaintop, which stands at 2,979 meters (9,775 feet) above sea level, prove that they have a point.

Some say the best time for hiking is between October and February, or the track would be slippery.
Bring extra foods if you plan to camp here for a few days, and be prepared for strong winds. Local porters are available to help you carry your belongings.
This is the view.
