Nguoi Xua Cave

Nguoi Xua CaveAt the end of the small valley among the mountains of Huong Son complex, the Nguoi Xua cave or Ngay Xua cave (Old People or Old Days) seems to be more interesting in the description of Mr. Pham Van Toa who is looking after this cave for more than 20 years.

Coming to Nguoi Xua cave, many people only knows the famous complex of Cuc Phuong national park (Nho Quan district, Ninh Binh province) and not so many people knows the famous vestige of Huong Son  (My Duc district, Hanoi city). In terms of geography, the Nguoi Xua cave is located in the end of South West of Hanoi, and it is only one mountain more before reaching Kim Boi district of Hoa Binh province.

After about 50km from Hanoi to Huong Son complex, though loving discovering the cave, visitors could not help watching the swimming fish in the Yen pure spring.

Going along the only one path under the mountains, the end of the path is Long Van pagoda vestige. Many people passing this pagoda often ask for a paper of petition to wish for luck and safety.

Coming to Nguoi Xua cave, if people go fast, it would take only one hour. On the way back, remember to pay a visit to Long Van cave, Khe pagoda, Tien Tu cave, etc, to have the overview understanding of the Huong Son landscape, said a nun in Long Van pagoda.

At the end of the path, there is nearly one km full of the settled stone staircases, which are places along the two banks, and they are called giant rocks. Visitors could take a sit on these rocks to rest before continuing their path. The smell of magnolia delicate the whole path, therefore visitors would feel it is peaceful and free in this land.
