Sometimes I see a photo of something so beautiful that I instantly put the destination on my travel list. This was the case for me when I saw the view of Tam Coc from the Mau Cave Viewpoint. Traveling to the other side of the world with the hopes that what I will see will be just as beautiful as a photo of the location is a little risky. A lot of things can go wrong, namely the weather. The weather wasn’t perfect on the day of my visit to Mua Cave Viewpoint but it still lived up to my expectations. The view of Tam Coc from the Mua Cave Viewpoint is still beautiful even if the weather isn’t perfect.
The fork in the path offers two choices: The popular path and the path less traveled.
Sometimes the path less traveled is more difficult but in this case the path less traveled is actually easier but it is less traveled because the scenery at the destination is not as rewarding. Getting to the summit of the Lying Dragon Mountain is harder but it is more popular because the reward at the destination is worth the effort to get there.
The trails to both viewpoints are tiring so my recommendation is to go to the summit of the Lying Dragon Mountain first and if you still have more energy left then go to the view point where the virtual living tower is located.
