Ban Bung is the southern sector of Na Hang proposed nature reserve. The topography of the site is characterised by steep, rugged limestone hills.
Non-bird biodiversity: Ban Bung, together with Tat Ke, the southern sector of Na Hang, is of particular importance for the conservation of globally threatened primate species. Na Hang is one of only a handful of sites in Vietnam to support Tonkin Snub-nosed Monkey Pygathrix avunculus, and may support the largest population. The globally vulnerable Francois' Leaf Monkey Trachypithecus francoisi francoisi has also been provisionally recorded at Na hang Nature Reserve. Two other globally threatened species, Podocarpus neriifolium and Southern Serow Naemorhedus sumatraensis, have been recorded at the site by Hill and Kemp (1996) and Boonratana (1998).
