İt is easy to reach from Hanoi. You may try daily tours or overnight at this place. Our choice was second one and spend 2 days. Mua caves is the top place of Ninh Binh.
You may see all mountains, rivers and boats easily. The weather forecast is not good for this area. Because of micro-climate, you may face with sunny weather even if there is thunderstorm at forecast. 500 steps up and it is worth to see the beatuy of whole area. September is also good choice for visiting. Stable weather, green rice paddies, less humidity. Stop thinking and just let go this place.

Beautiful scenery. We paid for a 3rd ticket to have the boat to ourselves. It was fun to go thru the caves. Loved Ninh Binh area.

I love the way riding around Trang An area. The view from Hang Mua is also good. Better to come here on sunny days and in the harvest season and enjoy stunning golden paddy fields,

I really excited for the trip, however, Mua Cave has let me down. We drive there and it was suppose to be a road lead to the entrance of Mua Caves and along that road there are some parking spot. BUT the locals has blocked that road using trees and soil. I was so shock and disappointing. Furthermore, because the road was blocked, we had to park outside and the price is really a problem. After you climb over that soil wall, the locals offer you a ride (10000 VND). I don't recommend this because I feel like if we use that service, they will keep blocking the road. The view at Mua Caves is nice but I don't think it worth the money. Not recommend this place.

Fantastic day out! The place really exceeded my expectations. It's a lot of stops (around 500?) to climb up, and in Vietnamese heat it can be quite challenging but the views up top are REALLY worth it :) there's a lot to do and see and the whole place makes for a great half day out.

Long climb to the top but has good views. Not a lot of support in terms of safety and rocks can be slippery at times so it's worthwhile to be careful here. The view is good but due to the air quality and smog you can't really see too far. It was interesting to see the country side and how locals live on the drive there.

The scenery is simply unreal, the stairs are WORTH the climb. The sea of Lotus flowers is like something out of a movie. Do not miss this😊

We arrived at the Mua Caves around 11:30am. There is a ton to see here and the hour and a half we got here was not even close to enough time. Not a ton of people which was nice. It cost 100,000VND (about $6CAD).

We started with a quick tiger cave tour. There is an underground stream deep inside cave other than that there is not much to it. If you are here a short time skip the cave.

Then we were off to climb the 486 stone steps to the top of the mountains to see the incredible views over the rice fields and Tam Coc river. It is a long, hot climb but worth it when you see the incredible views. The stairs and hand rails are very well maintained. There is also a few spots that you can pull off to the side to have a quick rest. It took us about 35mins to get to the top with a few quick rest stops. I am also very out of shape. Some people can do it in 20-25mins. It is very steep but very wide. There is 2 peaks you can go to. We only had enough time to do one. So we picked the the dragon peak side. Instead if the Pagoda Side.

There is some fun swings, places to have a snack, walkway over the rice fields and so much more. It is a great place to slow life down and enjoy the beauty and the quiet. Our guide said you can actually stay just outside the site. If we are ever back I will be looking into that.

We were running low on time so we did a quick walk threw the rice fields.

There are washrooms but you must pay 2000VND (.12 cents CAD) a person. Make sure you have small bills how they did not give change. There was no toilet paper so pack some with you same with hand sanitizer.

We did this on a trip. The measures are very high plus we showed up right before lunchtime and this was really quite a night before we had a great deal of rainfall so measures have been a little slippery on the way that down. When at the best you've wrestling with the crowds to obtain a picture together with the dragon. Not a great deal of space for lots of individuals being there right away. The point of view is amazing and worth the climb. You are able to understand why they call it Halong bay on land. There's a few of nice tourist shops just where we could have the ability to look and never be harassed. It will were good to get enough time to ascend another peak to own a great photo shoot of the key climb.

The views from the top are absolutely breathtaking, so the climbing those infamous 500 steps is definitely worth it!
