Fascinating the poetic landscape of Tam Coc – Bich Dong

Tam Coc – Bich Dong is a harmonious architectural complex made up of majestic mountains, wonderful caves, charming rivers, famous for Tam Coc cave and Bich Dong pagoda.

Tam Coc means 3 caves: Ca cave, Hai cave and Ba cave. Coming to Tam Coc, visitors can experience boat tours to visit the caves. The boat follows the Ngo Dong river – this is also the only waterway to the cave, Ca cave appears with cool and fresh air, magnificent stalactites which are adorned with water droplets like pearls, make them more beautiful and more sparkling. Going another 1km will come to Hang Hai where bring the magical beauty of stalactites with many strange shapes. About 100 meters from Hang Hai cave is Hang Ba cave where is considered the coolest cave because the cave is not too high and long, each cave has its own beauty, mysteriously and attractively. This journey will last from 2 to 3 hours.

The boat came out of the cave, a vast sky revealed gradually with majestic landscape of mountain, immense and clean water, the fresh air and blue sky. This scene makes people think of Ha Long Bay – one of the seven World Natural Wonders of Vietnam, and then they called Tam Coc with nickname “La Long Bay on land”.

If visitors have the opportunity to come here in the season of ripe rice, they will see the scene, on both sides, all rice fields will be dyed fresh yellow, tailing together in the wind, bobbing like ripples. Going for another 4km will come to Suoi Tien. The water here is clear, you can even see the bottom. This stream called Suoi Tien because people once believed that this place had been a favorite place to bathe of fairies.

In the opposite direction with Tam Coc is Bich Dong – the place is called the second beautiful cave in Vietnam. Bich Dong means green cave, where is famous with Bich Dong Pagoda – an ancient temple built in the late Le Dynasty, which was called “Bach Ngoc Thach Son Dong” – means a beautiful and clear stone temple like a pearl. Bich Dong pagoda was built on the mountainside and divided into 3 levels: Ha pagoda, Trung pagoda, and Thuong pagoda. Bringing ancient architecture, Bich Dong Pagoda is beautiful like a landscape picture of mountains and forests, anciently and poetically.
