Trang An Grottoes, Ninh Binh

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Explore the hidden cave chains of Trang An Grottoes, a World Heritage Site preserving a huge natural rock garden in a vast lake near Nihn Binh. You'll enter the caves by boat, passing through cracks in the limestone hillocks, which are covered with lush green vegetation. During a popular two- to three-hour boat ride, you'll see dramatic karst scenery and a nine-cave network interconnected by flooded inland waterways, with many suspended stalagmites. This pristine area boasts high biological diversity, and you can even paddle your own boat around the caves. Tours usually include a visit to Ha Pagoda on Ngo Dong River, Bai Dinh Temple, and the old capital of Hoa Lu. With our online itinerary creator, Ninh Binh attractions like Trang An Grottoes can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
