Mua Cave – a must see spot in Ninh Binh

Though home to such renowed destinations as Trang An landscape, Van Long natural reserve, and Tam Coc – Bich Dong, the northern province of Ninh Binh also has a new hot spot that draws a large number of visitors, which is Mua Cave, the site that is listed among top five must see destinations in the locality by TripAdvisor.

Mua cave is not as famous as Trang An or Tam Coc, but it welcomes a huge number of visitors to its gorgeous nature and services.

Mua cave is located in Khe Ha Village, Ninh Xuan commune, Hoa Lu District. It lies at the foot of the mountain of the same name which shapes like a bell upside down covering an area of 800 square metres.

There is a rocky hill dotted with nearly 500 steps leading to the top. In a far distance, its white banisters in the mountain looks like a miniature of the Great Wall of China. There is an altar hornoring the Quan Am (the Goddess of Mercy) on the top, and a stone dragon.

According to the legend when the King Tran arrived at Hoa Lu to establish Thai Vi temple, the King was used to visit this cave for enjoying dances performed by a young woman (who serves the imperial family). In Vietnamese “mua” means dancing so that the cave was named “Hang Mua”.

Mua cave itself is not impressive, but panoramic views from the peak above. With absolute greenery on all the sides, you can see the rocky hills grouped leading up to the horizon, with the river navigating in between. Visitors will feel so tranquil when they sit on a rock at the top.

Tourists to this place often try to conquer the peak of the mountain from where it could bring them up to the one of the most iconic views in Vietnam- an paranomic view of scenic limestone mountain ranges and paddy fields. In particular, to the west is the Ngo Dong river winding through Tam Coc, the other sides afford a view of lush rice fields.

Visitors should not miss Mua cave when visiting Tam Coc – Bich Dong. Climbing to the top of the mountain, they will see the ancient capital of Hoa Lu, which is solid and beautiful, and will understand why this place was chosen as the capital of the ancient Vietnam.
