Thac Bo - Thung Nai

From Ha Noi city, tourists go along the highway 6 to Hoa Binh province, after visiting Da river hydroelectric dam, have a next drive of about 5 kilometers, and then turn out of highway to a small road around the mountain side. They will go on a boat at Thung Nai station to have a sightseeing of islands. There are Thac Bo(Thác Bờ) float market happening on Sunday morning every week, two temples worshipping Mrs. Dinh Thi Van (Đinh Thị Vân) who is Muong (Mường) people in Hao Trang (Hào Tráng) and a Dao woman in Vay Nua (Vầy Nưa) who helped King Lê Lợi to have food and rafts with her efforts when the king fight against Deo Cat Han  (Đèo Cát Hãn) enemy in 1431. In the previous time, this temple was placed in the lake‘s heart, but since there has been Hoa Binh hydroelectric dam, it is moved to higher position. Both temples are highly supernatural and often organize the uniquely spiritual activities such as attending a séance on the early day of new year or ceremony of offerings to worship those women.

Far from the temple about 1 hour of rowing a boat, there is Ngoi Hoa (Ngòi Hoa) village belonged to Muong people, which is very wild and isolated.
