Mua Caves, Ninh Binh

4.3
#2 of 9 in Parks in Ninh Binh
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. Using our international travel planner, Ninh Binh attractions like Mua Caves can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We thought that its wrong name when said " Mua cave".Because the main point for this area is hiking to the top moutain to see the field view.Cave is just small.  more »
  • First of all I would like to give you a moment, when you come here by scooter or bike, please go all the way to the end of the street, where the entrance is and the buses are. From the beginning of the street you are called from your bike and people literally jump in front of your bike to make you stop for parking. Very annoying and you can simply buy a parking ticket, which is for the same price or cheaper when you buy your entrance card. Furthermore, the climb up is quite heavy, but it is worth it altogether. A beautiful view over the rocks and water on one side, and the city on the other side. Really very nice!

  • Even at 38 degrees and high humidity, the effort is rewarded with a magnificent view over the dry Halong Bay and the beautiful landscape. It is especially recommended to make the ascent at sunset.  more »
