Hang Mua, Ninh Binh

Ninh Binh is known as the most attractive spiritual destination in the North with the Bai Dinh pagoda complex. The province is also home to the so-called Vietnam version of “Great Wall of China”.

Located just below Mua mountain, Hang Mua first struck visitors with the long, scenic path leading to the top.

To reach the mountaintop where the sacred tower stands, one must conquer the winding 468 steps amidst the majestic mountainous area. Looking from above, the climbing path is identical to the famous Great Wall of China. Stones on both sides of the stairs are intricately engraved with images of dragons, phoenixes, eagles, all are holy animals symbolizing power and strength. Once reach the stop, you’re treated with a panoramic view of Tam Coc beneath, vast green rice fields and the beautiful Ngo Dong river.
