Photographer's Note

This is you on the way to The Huong Pagoda

The Huong Pagoda is located in Huong Son district, Ha Tay province, about 75 km from Southwest of Hanoi. This is a complex of pagodas, set amidst mountains, forests, lakes and caves and surrounded by vast green rice-growing plains.

The Yen Stream flows between two mountains for 3 km. However, sitting on the boat and enjoying the surrounding landscape, visitors may feel that this stream is endless. During the festive season, the stream is full of boats carrying pilgrims who have come to enjoy the landscape of Huong Son.

Traveling along the Yen Stream, visitors pass by landscapes, many of which are named according to their forms. On the left is Phoenix Mountain; there is also Doi Cheo Mountain, which looks like an Indian python. Also on the left are Bung and Voi, two mountains having interesting legends. On the right is Ngu Nhac Mountain with the Trinh Temple where visitors stop and burn incense for the God of the Mountain. Before reaching Tro Wharf, the boat also passes by the Deo and Phong Su Mountains, Son Thuy Huu Tinh Cave, Trau Cave, Hoi Bridge, and Dau Valley.
