Standing at the peak, visitors seem to feel like putting their feet in the heavens, with a fresh, cool atmosphere, a blue sky, and clouds covering their feet. However, it is advised that the best time to go to Que Peak is between October and February.

It is considered the most beautiful and attractive mountain peak in Quang Nam thanks to the large primaeval forest around it.

Contemplating the sunrise or sunset at Que Peak is also a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

Tay Giang is home to Co Tu ethnic minorities. Going to Tay Giang, visitors have chances to learn about the local cultural values and daily lives inside Guol, Dai, and Mool houses.
