THE SPECTACULAR DANCING CAVE (HANG MUA) IN WORLD HERITAGE OF NINH BINH - TRANG AN: This is a Scenic Landscape Complex (used to be for the new King Kong movie), inscribed as a mixed world heritage site in UNESCO’s list in 2014 for its unique combination of cultural and natural value...

Situated seven kilometers to the west of Ninh Binh city, this very place will have you lost in a wonderland, by just rowing a boat down the river. Karst mountains, evergreen jungles, lush rice fields, and vivid emerald rivers make up this whole area, together with endless points of interest to be discovered. What could be more ideal for an explorer? In fact, Trang An was among one of the major filming sites of the blockbuster Kong: Skull Island last year.


As part of the Trang An Landscape Complex, Hang Mua (Dancing Cave) is a must-see for visitors to Ninh Binh Province thanks to its unique location that offers an extraordinary panoramic view from above.
Hang Mua has recently emerged as one of the top destinations for foreign visitors due to its remarkable service quality and untouched natural beauty.


Hang Mua is located at the foot of Mount Mua, which looks like a large overturned bell with a width of 800 meters (2,624 feet). Visitors can climb to the peak on white stone steps which are sometimes referred to as a mini version of the Great Wall of China. On both sides of the stairs, there are handrails that are elaborately decorated with dragon or phoenix symbols inspired by the Tran Dynasty.
Legend has it that the Tran king ordered the construction of Thai Vi Temple, and often visited Hang Mua to enjoy dancing and singing, hence the name, "Dancing Cave".
To get there, tourists can follow National Highway 1A to Ninh Binh, follow the road towards Trang An or Tam Coc, and look for a sign leading to Hang Mua (Mua Caves). The journey is accompanied by fantastic views of endless rice fields with old villages, waterfront, rivers, lakes and the majestic mountains of Ninh Binh.



Once there, they can conquer the 500 stone steps to the peak to ultimately enjoy the beautiful view of Tam Coc.
