Trekking in Bich Dong Pagoda

Bich Dong Pagoda and its ornate gate, which stands at the foot of the Ngu Nhac Son mountain range, is one of Ninh Binh's most famous sites. In the summer, a large lotus pond is spanned by a stone bridge that is bursting with vivid pink petals. A serene courtyard and a classic Buddhist temple can be seen just beyond the gate.




Bich Dong is, in fact, a cluster of pagodas carved into a mountain that spans the Ngo Dong river. Bich Dong is made up of three separate pagodas, each of which dates from the 18th century, and the back pagoda is higher than the previous one.




You'll cross a stone bridge over a lotus pond and enter the chambers of Bich Dong – Vietnam's "second most beautiful grotto" – after passing through the gate. For breathtaking views, take the stairs up and around the mountain. The effort is definitely worth it for a bird's-eye view of the beautiful valley, emerald river, and lush mountains.
