Enjoy a full-day tour from Hanoi to the Perfume Pagoda, one of the most sacred places in Northern Vietnam. Admire the spectacular scenery as you drive through the countryside before paddling through lush paddy fields along the Yen Stream.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a scenic drive through the countryside of Northern Vietnam
  • Meander by paddle boat past picturesque paddy fields down the Yen Stream to reach the sacred Perfume Pagoda
  • Ride a cable car up to the captivating Huong Tich Cave with its stunning stalactites and stalagmites

Description

Your tour begins when you depart from your hotel in Hanoi at 8:00AM, at which point you will drive for 2 hours through the picturesque countryside. You’ll then enjoy a 1.5-hour boat trip along the scenic Yen Stream to Perfume Pagoda, a vast complex of Buddhist temples and shrines built into the Limestone Mountains. It’s the site of a religious festival which draws large numbers of pilgrims from across Vietnam. The many pagodas that make up the Perfume Pagoda are spread out among the limestone hills and tropical forests in the area of Huong Mountain. Following this fascinating experience, you’ll board another boat for an approximately 1 hour on a journey to Thien Tru Harbor. From there, you’ll take a cable car up to the spectacular Huong Tich Cave on the top of the mountain. At Huong Tich, you’ll admire statues of deities and learn how many pilgrims travel there to receive blessings from the stalactites and stalagmites, many of which have special purposes. The 'Golden Tree' and the 'Silver Tree' stalactites are considered especially lucky. Upon your return journey, you’ll visit the Giai Oan Spring and Tuyet Son Pagoda, stopping for lunch at a local restaurant before finally heading back to your hotel in Hanoi.
