We went there by bike, through quaint villages and beautiful terrain at a calm pace. It is super easy to bike there from the middle of Ninh Binh. The basic thing we noticed was the quietness, very little visitors, and the gorgeous mountain. We skipped...More

This place is packed at sunset, and its a long walk up more than 450 steps, but the views at the top make it all worth while.

Our driver took us here, not sure why. We climbed the uneven steps which is no easy task in the heat and full sun. It is not for the faint-hearted, one older lady was crying half way up saying “I am scared,” she went back...More

Don't miss this amazing view point. Taking the steps is quite exhausting, but if you reach the top you won't regret it.

The stairs are steep at the end, my 5yo needed help. The view is nice on the top but we couldn’t get near the dragon as there were too many people. Entrance fee is a bit pricey compared to other attractions/temples/caves in Vietnam (100’000d per...More

This place is amazing and the view is awesome. On the way up you can see some wild animals. The place is popular among Vietnamese girls and they take a lot of selfies :) it’s very funny!

You walk up (449 steps) to the Lying Dragon Mountain for the good views looking down at the boats going in and out of Mua Cave. It is very pretty, but nothing special. Still for 100k we found this place more interesting than an hour...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
