The A Sau Valley and Hamburger Hill

For the specialists

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2.5 stars



There are a number of spots in the area that were significant during the war and may have a familiar ring to some visitors -- you may even find a map marking some landing zones with names like Razorback and Cunningham, and some hills named with numbers. Tempting, but there's nothing there any more. Even the most ambitious tour companies don’t really recommend a visit, unless you're a returning Vet. This goes double for Hamburger Hill, which many tourists want to visit because of the movie. Some maps place it to the south of highway 29 in the Asau Valley, but all our sources say it is to the nort of A Luoi. A permit is needed to visit it, and it's only reachable on foot, from somewhere along Route 14. Its a two-hour walk each way, and it's not recommended in the rainy season. Some of the hills and landing zones are easier to access, but there are no signs, so you must hire a guide. Vets and others who served in Vietnam during the war can try contacting Huong Giang Tourist 17 Le Loi, Hue T: (054) 832-220 (www.huonggiangtourist.com), or Sepon Travel in Dong Ha.
