Full description
Following an early morning pickup at your hotel, you’ll head to Quang Ninh province to visit Yen Tu Mountain, famous for its landscapes and Buddhist relics. The surrounding area is made up of a system of pagodas, shrines, towers, and forests, all situated within this immense arched mountain range in northeastern Vietnam.  

Take the cable car to visit Hoa Yen Pagoda at the altitude of 534 meters. Here, you can see two 700-year-old frangipani trees. Then, climb the steps to reach Dong Pagoda, perched atop the mountain’s peak at an altitude of 1,068 meters.  

The beauty of Yen Tu lies in how the majesty of its mountain ranges mingle with the ancient and solemn quietness of its pagodas, shrines, and towers. Once you reach the summit, you can take in the beautiful panoramic view of Northern Vietnam and also enjoy a pure vegetarian lunch at a local restaurant nearby.
