WHAT TO SEE AND DO
Village Walking: From Bakhan Village Resort, the best village to walk is definitely Khan Ha in the neighborhood. Within 1-2 hours of relaxing walk, guest can really see the entire community in their original lifestyle. If you are more active, you can walk up to Khan Thuong and Khan Ho villages where people have more farm land and the area is located within a perfect valley. There is a famous temple that you can be told of mysterious super power.
Mountain hike: Bakhan is a paradise for mountain trekking with many secrets trails made by locals and breath-taking landscapes along the way. The most easy route is the Bakhan ‘West Hill’ in Khan Ha. This is a wonderful spot to visit at anytime of the day. The East Route starting from the resort is a little challenging with some hiking preparations and physical requirements. And the most challenging route is the Bakhan Jungle route covering the entire length of Bakhan.
Hang Ba Cave: This is probably one of the most surprising attractions! The cave is very secret, not in grand scale but details are wonderful. The government is preparing path to get in the cave which can be open to visit in 2020. It is definitely a must see! Getting there from the resort can only be done my walking now and it is not advised during the rain.
