Mua mountain

After around 2hours on the river, we continue our Hanoi Ninh Binh day tour with a visit to Hang Mua. This is where you have change to do some exercise and admire panoramic view from the top of mountain.

The highlight of this cave turns out to be Pearl Spring on your left hand. Once getting deeper inside, you will see this spring with cold, clean and fresh water… On arrival, we visit Mua mountain by stepping up around 500 footsteps. From the peak, you will have panoramic view of Tam Coc.

The Mua mountain is also known as Great Wall of Ninh Binh. According to legend, when King Trần returned to the Hoa Lu area to establish Thai Vi, he often came here to listen to the beautiful girls’ sings and dances. Therefore, this place is named Dance mountain or Múa mountain.
