Trang An Scenic Complex

As a mixed cultural and natural property, Trang An Landscape Complex was recognized as the World Heritage Site in 2014 and has attracted increasing numbers of tourists year after year.

Situated near the southern margin of the Red River Delta, the Trang An Landscape Complex, which is a 6,172ha splendid landscape of limestone karst peaks permeated with valleys, many of which partly submerged and surrounded by steep, almost vertical cliffs, is one of the must-see attractions that you should call on when doing a trip to Ninh Binh.

Three protected areas included in Trang An Complex are Trang An – Tam Coc – Bich Dong Scenic Area – the scenic landscape of extraordinary beauty, Hoa Lu Ancient Citadel Cultural – Historical Area, and Hoa Lu Special-Use Primary Forest, all of which are well worth your exploration.

A must-take-part-in activity in a Trang An Landscape Complex tour is a few-hour scenic boat trip on the well-developed river network in Trang An. Trang An’s highlights are not found in its rice fields and authentic farming activities but in this boat tour full of exploration to many tunnel caves (9-11 ones of different sizes and mysterious beauty).

Trang An boat ride

A 2-hour boat trip along limestone mountains without repetition is a chance to sail through karst tower landscape of Trang An, which is among the most beautiful and awe-inspiring places of its kind anywhere in the world to get access to these grottoes and caves of Trang An Complex.

Get your camera ready to capture the forested limestone mounts contrasting with the emerald water, together with caves, lowland, and rivers, which create an attractive postcard-like scene while comfortably sitting on your boat. It will be a beautiful memory to remember during your lifetime.

As Trang An is such a popular name among both Vietnamese and international travelers, do not expect to have the river to yourself. But, few stops to certain temples (Trinh Temple, Duc Ong temple, etc.), nice view of aquatic plants growing and living in the bed of the river or a trek up for a panoramic view of the region are reasons for a Trang An boat trip.

Constructed following the shape of “the miniature Great Wall” in China with nearly 500 steps up to the mountain peak to conquer, this cave which is down a sleepy road between rice paddies is a hard trek up with many of its uneven limestone steps.

The best time of a year to go for a memorable Mua Cave tour(This---> should be between April and May when the rice is getting ripe from green to yellow colors while the best time of a day is sunrise or sunset when Ninh Binh town itself and enchanting Ngo Dong River shine at their fullest. The reward for your effort to do your morning exercise or afternoon exercise, to climb more than 500 steps to reach the mountaintop of Mua Mountain is the incredible 360-degree view of Ninh Binh Tam Coc, Trang An, and gentle Ngo Dong River from the top. It will be a one-of-a-kind experience being wrapped in your lovers’ arms or holding hands in hands while admiring the breathtaking panoramic views or sipping some cool beer you bring along with you. To capture these wonderful panoramic photos of golden rice fields and limestone mountains, let your camera be your traveling fellow!

To well prepare for the road, paved but steep in sections, and a stone staircase beside the cave entrance zigzagging through the karst, make sure to bring some water or drinks and allow hours for the whole trip. It is wise to connect your visit to Trang An, Tam Coc and Bai Dinh pagoda with biking, then trekking to this stunning cave.
