Trang An Grottoes

Hoa Lu was the ancient capital city of Vietnam from 968 to 1009. Here, kings under Dinh and Le dynasties built a citadel surrounded by karst-mountains. After a long period being suffered from the destruction of wars and weather, what remain now are the two sacred temples of our kings and a part of the old palace.

Hoa Lu Temples

If guests don’t want to visit the temples in Hoa Lu, they can choose Mua Cave as an alternative.

Mua Cave offers unique views of Tam Coc Rivers from above. This “mini Grand Canyon” is the best place to get high in Ninh Binh. Views change every meter make the hike more interesting.
