A beautiful story on Gio Hill

(BGO) - With the legendary Non Vua peak, Nham Bien mountain range in Yen Dung district, Bac Giang province has become an attraction to many people. In order to help everyone have stopovers after a hard climbing journey, Tran Xuan Tinh, who lives in residential area 6, Nham Bien township, together with two friends, collected dry branches and assembled them into many sturdy benches. They have also actively participated in protecting the ecological environment and beautifying this mountain range.

Beautifying the forest

Gio Hill is an ideal place for tourists to stop on the climbing route from the foot of Ben Dam bridge to Non Vua peak in the Nham Bien mountain range. Here, the terrain is flat, the wind is cool all year round, you can look around.

Tran Xuan Tinh brings items to Gio Hill to make a stopover for tourists.

Sitting on a wooden flat, Tinh said: "On April 30 last year, in the Gio Hill area, I and two friends named Thang and Huan who live near my house picked up logs along the way left by forest rangers to make benches".

Taking a quick look, I saw that there are two flats around, each about 10sq.m wide. Next to them are two swings made of cable and stainless steel mounted on the trunk, a few horizontal bars and benches...

Tinh said that all of the above tools were designed by himself. Some people sent money to buy materials, but he spent time and effort to make them.

Silent dedication

So far, he and his two friends have made seven stopovers, of which four have benches and three have wooden flats. All were initiated by him. He himself built a flat and swings on Gio Hill, and even brought his house’s hammock for everyone to use.

The items at the stopovers are made from logs and dry branches. The locations for flats or benches were also carefully calculated, ensuring they are shady for climbers to take a rest after a hard journey. In some areas without shade, he planted more trees.

A stopover was set up by Tran Xuan Tinh and his two friends.

Many people who were grateful for this meaningful work showed their willingness to pay wages for Tinh, but he refused. He only received money from a few people to buy iron and steel to make swings, because he could not find these materials in the forest. According to him, he does this work voluntarily, not for the purpose of making money.

While walking and confiding with Tinh, sometimes we saw groups of 3-4 climbers. Many people stopped to greet him cordially. It seems that everyone knows him, whether they come from other communes and township in Yen Dung district or from Bac Giang city.

Not only actively making wooden benches and flats, Tinh has also paid attention to keeping the environment clean and creating a clean and beautiful landscape. Along the way from the foot of the mountain to Non Vua peak, he hung many bags for climbers to put waste into and wrote the word "keeping hygiene" on white papers pinned to the trees along the way to remind people. When the bags are full, he collects and destroys them. Perhaps because of that, there is no waste on the whole mountain climbing route, despite a large number of people passing through each day.

Tinh turns 67 years old this year. He comes from Tri Yen commune in the same district. When he was only 20, he worked at the Mai Son Forest Enterprise in Luc Nam, and retired in 1995. Once attached to the forest, when he returned to his hometown, he decided to build a house and live right at the foot of the Nham Bien mountain range.

He has climbed for physical training for about 2 years. The more he climbs, the more eager he becomes. Now, he climbs twice a day, at around 5am and 4pm, except on rainy days or when he is busy.

With the desire to preserve the natural landscape for public health, Tinh is writing a beautiful story on Gio Hill.
