Along the road to Muong Phang commune, there are beautiful mountains, forests, and particularly a 60 ha reservoir which provides water to the hydroelectric projects of Thac Bay and Na Loi. The reservoir consits of hundreds of small islands and over 200 ha of forest vegetation cover floristic composition, therefore it’s very potential for eco-tourism development.
Muong Phang commune still keeps the historical relic site of the Dien Bien Phu Campaign Headquarters. In reality, there is a primeval forest with century old trees which is called with respect by Dien Bien people “Forest of the General Vo Nguyen Giap”, as it is connected closely with General Vo Nguyen Giap who led the Dien Bien Phu Campaign to the world shaking victory. The forest is the place where the General Headquarters of the Dien Bien Phu Campaign was located and now becomes an ideal destination for those who want to come to see the vestiges of the battlefield.
Tourists in Vietnam tourism to the relics will have chance to pass through the 69 m long tunnel through the mountain where General Vo Nguyen Giap and Major General Hoang Van Thai and other commanders discussed military affairs.
