Also known as Huong Pagoda. The trek up to the Pagoda is about 4 km, slippery and hot if you are doing it in May-Jun. Good news is that there is now a cable car operating - abt 30,000 Dong one-way.

I chose to trek up to experience the "old way" of walking to the Pagoda and you get to see beautiful scenary and some temples along the trek. Coming down by cable car to have another aerial view of the area.

Address: 60 km from Hanoi

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
