Mua Cave

There is no doubt that Ninh Binh must be on your traveling list in Vietnam, however, if you want to have an impressive photo to post on Facebook or Instagram or just to send to your friends or family, where could be the best place?

Joining the boat trip at Tam Coc, you will feel curious about the Lying Dragon Statue on the top of a mountain on Ngo Dong river. That is Mua cave (Hang Mua) – a truly impressive landscape in Ninh Binh.

Hang Mua (Mua in Vietnamese means dancing) was the place the King enjoyed the dancing performances. Look up from the foot of Mua mountain, the long stone staircase zigzags to the top of the peak look similar to “Great Wall of China”. Climb up almost 500 steps, you can reach to the simple altar of Quan Am (the Goddess of Mercy) and the Lying Dragon Statue. All of the tiring will be disappear when you see the panorama view of Tam Coc which would be exceptional gorgeous in rice season.

The hiking is not suitable for people who have heart or high blood pressure diseases, hiking in the summertime is also a challenge for you. Hence, you should bring enough water, allow an hour on the way back and especially make sure that your health is matched.
