Visit the majestic mountain in the ancient capital Ninh Binh
The ancient capital is not only marked by the magnificent scenery but also possesses a heroic history carved with a thousand years of culture.
There are no image of high buildings, covering the clear blue sky. And of course, there is no loud “bim beep” traffic jam every afternoon. Instead of the “green – brown – yellow” colors of heaven and earth, rocky mountains and plants. Is it the sound of the buffalo outside the field that is in the agricultural season, or the sound of the duck swimming on the lake.
I came to Ninh Binh on the first day of June. This is the best season of ripe rice in the year. On June and October, Ninh Binh put on a new set of clothes. The coat is covered by the shiny, gentle yellow of the rice that is grainy, leaning toward the wind.
Ninh Binh is only 100 km away from Hanoi, so I choose a motorbike to experience the entire road. The winding trails lead into the small village, then cross the fragrant lotus fields that are blooming. That is unforgetable memory.
The first destination I chose to explore this land was the Dance Cave (hang Mua). The place covering in travel sites that is very famous to young people. The Dance Cave is located at the foot of the Mountain Dance which is considered the miniature Great Wall of Vietnam because of its ancient and majestic beauty.
From a distance, the Dance Cave appeared in the middle of the fields. The surrounding area is covered by a moss-covered lake. In particular, 486 primitive stone steps were built with wonders leading the way to the top. Each step despite being tired but does not reduce the feeling of excitement and hangover because every vivid scene gradually appeared before your eyes.
At the top of the mountain, there is a statue of Quan The Am Bodhisattva facing down to the ancient capital, along with dragon embracing itself along the mountain slope, making the Dance Cave become more majestic and sacred.
The moment of conquering the top of Dance Cave is the overwhelming overwhelmingness because the scenery is so vast. Once you come here, you can see how small we are to keep the grandeur of heaven and earth.
Launching the view from the top of the Dance Cave, looking far away, is a breathtakingly beautiful panorama of Tam Coc. The winding rice fields pushed along the flowing water. Somewhere bobbing nan boats so slowly.
The beauty of Ninh Binh will not be able to reach the peak without Trang An landscapes. The place is nicknamed “Ha Long on land” that many travel bloggers or Hollywood filmmakers admire.
Trang An is recognized by UNESCO as a world natural heritage because of the pristine beauty of the numerous limestone mountains, standing in the middle of a charming river. Along with that are the historical sites are cherished and preserved every year. All create a beautiful picture of water.
Here, you will experience the feeling of slow boat weaving through each cave, crossing the majestic mountains. Each stop will bring a thrilling story about the history of protecting Hoa Lu capital, such as Thai Vi temple, Tran temple, Vu Lam palace …
Beside Trang An and Hang Mua, Ninh Binh also has a long list of tourist attractions such as the largest Bai Dinh Pagoda in Southeast Asia, the magnificent Tuyet Tinh Coc, Thung Nham Valley Bird Garden.
