Mua Caves, Ninh Binh
(4.4/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Though not a particularly notable site on its own, Mua Caves boast unobstructed views that many visitors seek. Next to the cave entrance, follow a 500-step staircase leading up the peak. Once you arrive at the top, you will see another cave complex as well as southern Vietnam's limestone mountain. Many visitors like to come here at sunrise or sunset, but you can climb up at any time of day. If you prefer to only see the cave, you may want to bring a flashlight, as it is small and dark. Make Mua Caves part of your personalized Ninh Binh itinerary using our Ninh Binh trip builder.

  • Although the rise of almost 500 steps is hard, there is to climb to the lookout if or if. Once above can enjoy views of the River, rice fields and mountains that breathtaking. A site where to draw out photos and photos and absolutely essential if visits the area of Ninh Binh

  • This is the place that you can see tam coc from the best point. If you reach there at September. I think it will be the best view with golden rice paddies along the rivef
  • In my opinion, the entrance fee is quite expensive, i.e 100k VND, considering that it is only stairs, one pagoda and no information about the place. The view is alright though. The stairs are steep, so make sure you wear proper shoes.
  • Great view after a lot of stairs, which make you sweaty. You should get there easily by bike or motorbike. Only one downside is admission which is quite high...100k.
  • The place really worth a visit although the price is a little bit high ($4 but no indications and in the middle of a resort). If you are looking for the perfect view of the area, this is your place. It's not easy to get to the top (there's no shade and the steps are very steep). Make sure to bring enough water, you will need it and there's no shops throughout the way. Enjoy the view!!
  • Really worth a visit if you are in the Ninh Binh/Tam Coc area. Take some water for the walk up since there is no shop whatsoever.
