Full description
Depart Ho Chi Minh City and travel by private vehicle to Tây Ninh Province. Visit the Cao Đài temples near the Black Virgin Mountain (Núi Bà Đen), and learn why the mountain is revered by the people of Vietnam.  Ride the cable car to the pagoda temple dedicated to the local Khmer deity, Bà Đen. Get breathtaking views of the surrounding fruit orchards, mango trees, and woodland flowers, and learn the ancient legends of the mountain, towering 3,000 feet above rice fields and jungle. Take an optional hike further up the mountain to discover two more temples, if you desire. Then, visit the amazing Củ Chi tunnels, with a break for lunch on the way to the subterranean city that served as the operations base of the Viet Cong for the Tết Offensive during the Vietnam War. Return to Ho Chi Minh City after exploring the labyrinth of tunnels, and get dropped off at your hotel.

Experiencing the tunnels was fascinating, and if you are interested in the war history it is must do. The Cao Dai temple is truly unique and the history of the religion very interesting. Visiting the Black virgin mountain is a must to get an idea of the scope and size of the area. The Buddhist temple and shrine is well maintained and beautiful to see. Thao (Tina) our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions, she also told us interesting folk tales and a lot more about Vietnamese culture.

Very interesting and exciting tour

Very interesting tour, well cared for by operator Tiger Tours. The tour consisted of three parts: the Cu Chi tunnels, the Cao Dai temple and the Black Virgin Mountain. The latter can be done well by using the cable car, and a must for those interested in temples and pagodas. Keep in mind that you are on the road all day, the tour is from early in the morning until late in the evening.
