Ngo Dong river – the beauty of nature (Ninh Binh)

Ngo Dong river- the name itself brings a very romantic sentiment. Sailing boat on the river in the harvest, the golden of rice surely makes an unforgettablememory in tourists’ mind.

Ngo Dong river is a small stream running through magicient limestone mountains and paddy fields that belongs to Ninh Binh province. The tourists sailing on the small boats on the green water with all ripe rice at the two branches create the most beautiful fairy tale picture. Ngo Dong is the only way heading to Tam Coc- “ Ha Long on the land” because of the fresh cool air and the sheer majesty mountain scenery which is 100km from Hanoi to the South. In the end of May and the early of June, The paddy fields all around were yellow from the ripe rice that was being harvested, and seemed to lend their tinge to the water. That is the best of times in year to behold the great beauty.Therefore, everything is brightly golden even the river also reflects the sunshine that make the scene become sparkling than ever. Sitting on the boat runs to Tam Coc cave.

Tourists are able to see stalacites hanging above. The feeling of going through a dark and cold cave, moving forward by only the leading of tourist guide is very strange and interesting. The only sound comes from the oars touching the water, the light suddently coming and disapearing from the two sides of doorway certainly makes tourists surprised and attracted. The mountain next to Hang Ca cave is the great place to behold Ngo Dong river. From high above, the river is outstanding on the yellow background surrounded by majestic mountains. Everything seems to be stopped here to catch up with the slow speed of the river. The silence brings a peaceful feeling. Furthermore, we can see fish, prawn and moss in the water. Far away, the boat filling with rice promises a bumper harvest.
