The place has one of the best spots to see the region from above. Going through a newly created park (restaurants, hotels, etc) you can start climbing the 500 steps. At the beginning it is quite easy but the more you go up the more...More

This is one of the best things ive seen in Vietnam! If you are going by motorbike remember that you can park for free just near ticket office and ignore people who are forcing you to park on some parking spots and pay for that.

It's a bit of a climb, but the view is spectacular. We went late Feb and even though the rice fields below were several inches high they did not look emerald green in colour from up there. More of a patchy green with muddy water....More

Well worth the climb to see this view. Would love to go back and see it again when the rice is yellow. When we went there were not too many people. That was first thing in the morning. I would imagine once the day trippers...More

It definitely worth a visit there. There is quite some stairs to climb but once on top the view is amazing.

It’s totally worth it climbing up the stairs to the two tops. Amazing view from up there! Many parking lots, don’t stop at the beginning of the road although the people are very nice. Park in front of the eco lodge.

You can’t go to Tam Coc without going up Hang Mua for the sheer pleasure of the views from the top. We took it gradually to climb the 500 steps to the temple and dragon which gave a great view of the other pagoda which...More

Hello 957davidh, If you are in normal physical condition it’ll probably take you 30-40 min to climb all stairs, rest a bit while admiring the views (360 degrees) and walk den again. Hope this helps! Have fun. Patrick

What ever you do don't walk to the caves. You can't get in or across the water. Workers won't get you across. Reason being you need to buy your pass at the blue kiosk center by the restaurant area near the boat docks((look... More
