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.
