If previously, the passion of conquering the high peaks in Bat Xat was a spontaneous form of tourists only, in recent years, especially in 2017 and 2018 with attention, investment and development of the District, this type of tourism has become a major tourist product in the district's tourism programs. Specifically: the district has assigned survey teams including district’s leaders and representatives of related departments, sectors to survey Lao Than, Ky Quan San climbing routes. The survey teams directly examined the road, the stops on the road to the peaks, measured the height of the mountain and examined its terrain to put the signs on Lau Chan, Ky Quan San peaks accordingly for sightseeing, taking souvenir photos of tourists. Conquest programs of Lao Than or Ky Quan San peaks were organized as the mountaineering races, are one of the main activities of the 2017 Bat Xat Autumn Festival.
