In Ha Tay Province, about 100 km outside from the centre of Ha Noi to the South, lies one of the most popular religious sites in Vietnam. The Perfume Pagoda actually consists of a series of pagodas built inside grottoes. The sacred shrines are typical of Buddhist shrines found all over the world, but their unique context and importance to Vietnamese Buddhists – who show up in the springtime in large numbers – make the Perfume Pagoda an obligatory stop in Vietnam’s north.

    Perfume Pagoda
    Stop: 8 minutes - Admission included
    At 7:45 , your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel in Ha Noi City. It will take around 2 hours to row boat trip for going to visit that land on the Yen stream of “romantic time” and Thien Tru harbor. The entrance of the cave has the appearance of an open dragon’s mouth, and Chinese characters are carved in a wall at the mouth of the cave. Inside the cave are many statues of deities, including a large statue of the Buddha, as well as one of the Bodhisattva Quan Am. Among the naturally occurring features of the cave are numerous stalactites and stalagmites, many of which are named, believed to possess special powers, and worn smooth from years of rubbing by visitors. Pilgrims often gather under one particular stalactite, which resembles a breast, to catch drops of water in hopes of being blessed with health. Huong Tich cave is also considered as a sacred place because a legend says that the Bodhisattva Quan Am visited it in order to help human souls. Then, you will enjoy time to trek up and down and visit the main cave. You will arrive at Huong Tich cave on the top of the mountain and see Golden-Silver tree rice stuck. You will have an hour to have lunch in a restaurant at the bottom of a mountain . After lunch time, you will visit the Heaven Kitchen pagoda and learn more about ancient Buddhism architectural at Le Dynasty. Finally, you will be taken back to Hanoi by row-boat-trip and road trip.
