Explore an astonishing natural setting of limestone caves and karst rock formations at Tam Coc. The geologic compound was created by the erosive powers of the Ngo Dong River, which many villagers use to irrigate their crops. Go on a sampan tour on the scenic river to photograph the surrounding natural marvels and get acquainted with the local way of life. Besides passing next to strangely shaped caves and vegetation-covered rock formations, you can also visit nearby pagodas and monuments. Plan a Ninh Binh trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Tam Coc is beautiful! I stayed in Chezbeo Valley Bungalow and it was such a wonderful place! So close to the small but lovely town centre as well as Hang Mua where you can easily spend a day! more »
Tam Coc is stunningly beautiful and fun, but quite busy. I did not experience the attempts to sell product others report, but we were a small group of Europeans & Americans traveling with two local friends, so maybe that had something to do with it. Would I go back - Yes. Would I take others - definitely yes!
This area is considered the inland ha long bay. The scenery is really wonderful. We went in December and the rice paddies were just ponds at that point but it was still nice. Suggest coming with a guided tour if you’re coking from Hanoi. Plenty to see and do for a day.
