248070835_ef360bc95b_b

This offer is a private tour to discover the true value of Ninh Binh. The fist day will visit Cuc Phuong national park and trekking to Khanh village then homestay with Muong Ethnic Mimonity People. The second day visit Tac Coc and ancient citadel.

Highlights tour:

Ninh Binh : Ninh Binh has the pace of a large country town – a welcome respite if you’ve just escaped the bustle of Hanoi. Apart from the scrum of guesthouse owners greeting the trains, and the charming chorus of ‘Hello, how are you’ from the local children, you’ll largely be left alone as you wander the quiet streets.

Cuc Phuong national park culture: In earlier times, Cuc Phuong was home to the Muong minority people (or tribe) and to this day a few scattered villages around the park’s periphery still house these interesting people and their unique culture. If you visit these communities you can still see their traditional stilt houses, waterwheels, bamboo rafts and brocade looms.

Cuc Phuong national park limestone karsts landscape : Located on 2 limestone mountain ranges, the landscape of Cuc Phuong is a wonderfully rich ecosystem. The rocky outcrops of Cuc Phuong contain very valuable archeological vestiges such as a fossilized sea reptile, dated at 200 – 230 million years old and evidence of prehistoric people, who lived in the forest some 7500 years ago.

Endangered Primate Rescue Center: One of the highlights of Cuc Phuong is the EPRC. The highly successful center has approximately 120 primates in breeding programs. There are currently 15 different species and subspecies of Gibbons and Langurs on site, including several living in huge forested enclosures.

Open daily: 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. and 13:30 – 16:00 p.m. EPRC opens every half hour.

Muong People: The Muong people group is the third largest of Vietnam’s 54 minority groups, with a population of 1,236,000. Indeed, they are one of the largest ethnic minorities in the Indochina region.
