  • We left Hanoi with the guide and the driver of Ethnic trip. We stopped at Thai Nguyen to visit the beautiful Museum of Ethnography. The road was well being through several villages to reach the Lake. Overnight in the cottage was friendly and genuine.

  • Good fun. Quite ride. Insist on going to tthe fairy pool first and have some breakfast there though when on the boat tour. Price is about 800dg for a whole group for the whole day experience. Good luck.
  • It is extremely beautiful and authentic. Not a lot of tourist, and you can feel like the lake is all yours. You can take a motorboat with a local driver that takes you to the beautiful places in the lake. Around 500.000 vnd to a boat. The waterfall is not very big but it is very very beautiful. I didn't hike there cause didn't have the time, but it looks like a cool thing to do there.
  • Nice beautiful nationalpark. Must see in North Vietnam. You don't have to book a full tour. The boat tour was much cheaper in the park. Not easy to get there, but from the my dinh bus Slstation should drive a bus to the park. We took the bus back to hanoi. To the park we took the "Linh's Adventure", only the shuttle. Because We didn't know there is a bus directly to the park.
  • Spectacular views, tour around the lake and the cave is a must! Try to avoid visiting during the weekend as it is a popular place for locals and is much more quite during the week.
  • NOISY BOAT TO ENJOY THE SCENERY, IT IS BETTER WITK KAYAKING!
