I arrived amidst lush forest in the Cuc Phuong National Park to the thousand year old tree along the six kilometre trail. Unfortunately, it appeared the tree had seen better days. Only a few leaves clung to the very top.

In spite of this disappointment, it was still clear this was the grandmother of trees.
