Van Long Nature Reserve, Ninh Binh

4.2
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Ninh Binh
An expansive wetland dotted with limestone pinnacles, Van Long Nature Reserve plays host to hundreds of species of migratory and endangered birds. Set across an area of 3,000 ha (7,413.2 ac), a rowing boat tour serves as the ideal way to discover this rich landscape, weaving your way between grasslands, rice paddies, and grotto-like caves. Keep your eyes peeled for the Delacour Langur--the reserve’s dense foliage is one of the last remaining habitats for this endangered primate. Pack your own lunch with plenty of water, and immerse yourself in this prehistoric environment. Keen bird-watchers should remember to bring a pair of binoculars to the reserve. Our Ninh Binh online trip itinerary maker makes visiting Van Long Nature Reserve and other Ninh Binh attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Preserve is located next to a canal and on the other side of a dike .most views will be of Karsts but building cranes can be seen in the distance on other side of canal so no total feeling of nature. ...  more »
  • Van Long seems curiously little known to the Vietnamese in Hanoi. In all cases we had to exchange with several guides before falling on someone who knows really. They offer rather Tam Coc. So we went through Galatourisme to organize the output, and it was a nice experience. Visit of a large park and climbing a small mountain (500 markets) with a splendid panorama over the rice, lunch in a restaurant for tourists but OK then one hour tour by boat with an extension to the traditional circuit It was quiet and magical. Of course it was fine so it was spoiled!

  • It's a really nice site where you alone to enjoy the nature. The rowers of the boats are friendly and smiling. You can also do the bike ride along the disc and in the villages. The people are really friendly and we drank tea with an old man in his home. Very good site.
