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.

  • You have to climb up steps to get to a couple of different lookout platforms, views are stunning! You can look over Ninh Binh or over the Tam Coc river ride and rice paddies. There are also lotus...

  • An interesting place with some places to look at and take pictures at the bottom, before starting the climb and climbing of about 500 high steps until reaching the dragon mountain top (the left hill). We came to the site around 17:00 with children, claimbed to the top until 18:00 and got back down from the mountain around 18:30 so we had a short time to watch the attractions there until the sunset at 19:00. This timing placed us in a bit of a tight schedule, but helped us to avoid the crazy hot weather. At the end of the tour a kiosk owner was "nice" and ordered us a taxi that charged us x2 more then the amount we paid for our way there.
  • Great place for amazing view points and picture spots ! Although, with 500 steps to climb you might be a bit shiny on your pics. There is a place to buy water on the way up, at about halfway, don't miss it if you need to drink. Otherwise bring at least one big bottle per person. If you're wondering, the climb is definitely worth the struggle don't miss is if you're in the region, but maybe go in the morning or evening!
