At an elevation of 930 metres, Tam Đảo town was established by French colonists in 1907 as a tranquil hill resort in northern Vietnam. Several luxurious villas designed for the French still remain. It is now an enclave administratively belonging to Vinh Yen city.
Tam Dao National Park is located in humid and tropical climate region. High and long running mountain range creating two distinct eastern and western slopes together with different annual rainfall have contributed to different micro-climate. This is also an important factor in creation of two tropical belts.
The differences in soil and climate among regions along with the impact of mankind have created different micro-climates in this area. This is the favorable condition to create a Tam Dao National Park covering by dense vegetation diversifying in species and biotic communities and ecosystems.
