Mua Cave or Hang Mua

Mua Cave is located at the foot of Mua Mountain. Although it's not as famous as many other scenic spots in Ninh Binh, the cave is much-loved due to the beautiful natural scenery and it being much quieter than other places.

Hang Mua has its meaning as “dancing cave” because this site was previously considered as the place where Tran king used to come to enjoy dancing & singing shows performed in this cave.

At the moment, Hang Mua has been developed as an eco-tourism complex with Hang Mua resort (peaceful & nice view of rural villages & mountains) that you can spend your relaxed night in, and with trekking activities you can take part in to visit Mua Cave.

Hang Mua is like a “miniature Great Wall” with nearly 500 steps up the mountains to conquer. It is a hard trek up with many uneven limestone steps, especially at the top.

Care must be taken on the steep steps. For wonderful panoramic photos of the golden rice fields and limestone monntains, it is best to arrange your trip to Ninh Binh and the Mua cave between late May and early June. Sometimes early in May when the rice is getting ripe, you can see the fields changing from green to yellow.

Trang An Landscapes

Trang An is the most famous tourist destination in Ninh Binh today. With beautiful unspoiled natural scenery, Trang An Ninh Binh has been recognized by UNESCO as a natural heritage and World Cultural Heritage Site.

The scenery is made up of winding rivers flowing through limestone mountains, creating countless natural mystical caves. Boat is the best way to explore Trang An; visitors will be seated on a rowing boat for watching the beautiful surrounding nature.
