Create an itinerary including Mua Caves
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.

  • A very special location and probably the best area to take pictures of the landscapes. Large lotus fields are around the entrance which lead towards the mountain itself. Approximately 1000 steps to the summit, the steps can vary in size so be prepared for half climbing and half walking. It's worth the effort as the summit allows for splendid photo opportunities. There are also mountain goats that may visit if you are lucky.
  • IMPORTANT: Don’t let yourself be scammed by the parking mafia, they will stop you on the way and lie about that you are not allowed to drive further. Just say no and continue. Seems like in the past the parking was free but know there is also a sign at the main entrance. 5K Very beautiful place! Besides the way up to the viewpoint and dragon there is a lot more to see, a small like and also a swimming pool 😅
