  The Rest







a tunnel cave

"People come to Mua Cave not for the cave but for the view from the top. It's a short climb (10-15 min) that's not too difficult. The view is stunning from the top. You can see Tam Coc, rice paddies, limestone karsts. Thankfully, it is also not too crowded at the top."

The path zigzagging going up

          De Mua Cave - is located about 5 km from the center of Ninh Binh. Actually, this cave is nonexistent and you could beat it. However ....... who is going to Tam Coc, is actually obliged to visit this cave, because of the panoramic view that you have here.

The tunnel cave is situated at the top of a mountain and from the mountain you have a beautiful view over Tam Coc and its surroundings. The cave so not much. See the picture on this page. But you have such a impressive view down at the valley .....
You see a sleepy road between lush paddy fields and the Ngo Dong River, which winds through between the karst mountains.
A beautiful landscape is dominated by waterways, bamboo hedges, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. It brings you closer to nature.
It is best to make the climb in the morning, before the day is at its hottest. The climb doesn't take long (15 minutes) and the view is breathtaking.


The climb stairs consists of around 500. The path zigzagging going up and it takes fifteen minutes. The climb is exhausting, especially as it is occasionally steep and there is no handrail. You have to bring a bottle of water for the road.
Once upstairs you could forget the cave, because the view is so beautiful and you have more focus on the Ngo Dong River that winds through Tam Coc. Yet there is a cave on the left with a small shrine to Quan Am, the goddess of mercy. There are also some huts.
In short, make the climb to the top for breathtaking views and you can skip the cave with peace of mind.

The tunnel Cave

From a travelogue:

"Reading about the steepness of the climb we arrived early to beat the heat (there wasnt any). The climb itself doesn't take that long & the hardest part is the height of some of the steps. Also some are a bit uneven have been hewn out of the rock. But take your time, enjoy the various views at some natural rest stops along the way & you'll be rewarded with a view of the lying dragon & the goddess of peace at the top."
