Flagpole of Phai Ve Mountain – Vietnam’s miniature Great Wall
The flagpole of Phai Ve mountain can be considered as one of the famous symbols of Lang Son city. Located on Phai Ve mountain with an altitude of about 80m, this flagpole consists of 535 solidly built stone steps. The entire flagpole is built with durable materials such as stone-clad concrete. The stair railing going up is faked like green bamboos that look quite like the Great Wall. Perhaps because the image of the towering flag tower with the meandering steps is quite similar to the Great Wall. Therefore, this place is known as the Great Wall of Vietnam, a miniature version of Vietnam.
You can travel by motorbike or car to Lang Son city center. Then park the car and hike up the mountain. Moving up the flagpole is extremely simple and easy. You will feel cool and comfortable as soon as you finish climbing the mountain because of the cool fresh air when you are on the mountain.
With a high position and located right in the center of the city, you can stand right on the high steps to enjoy the panoramic view of romantic Lang Son. The whole city seemed to shrink insight. The most impressive is probably the night scene when the lights of the street are shimmering and the houses are spread out at the feet.
At night, the lights are also lit at the Flagpole with nearly 1000 LED bulbs installed. Under the steps, in the cave and around the mountain are also beautifully decorated with lights. Make the Flagpole look like a bright torch, illuminating and radiating the whole city. The whole Phai Ve mountain exudes a dreamy beauty under the chilly weather of the night.
