Thung Nai

On hearing about Thung Nai, many people think this is an isolated place, but Thung Nai is a commune of Da River lake in Cao Phong district - Hoa Binh, located about 25 km away from the center of Hoa Binh city. Hoa Binh people share that:. The name Thung Nai was given as there were many deer living here. Pictures of golden deers in the sun in the afternoon on the slopes, reflected in the Da river became the name of this land.

 In Thung Nai, there are not many places to play, but has many beautiful scenery. When Hoa Binh Hydropower was completed, Da River water level covered the valleys up to the middle of the mountain to create beautiful islets. So someone said Thung Nai is like Ha Long Bay on land with many islands. In Thung Nai there is not only beautiful scenery but also many historical and cultural relics.

Your first destination may be the Thac Bo Temple. The temple is located in Bo hamlet, Vay Nua commune, Da Bac district, worshiping Mrs Dinh Thi Van who is Muong ethnic woman and a Dao ethnic woman.

After their death, they “appeared” to support the local people cross the waterfall safely and blessed hundreds of people with good crops and favorable weather. Hence, local people created a temple to worship them. Around the temples are ethnic minority people selling Viet Nam traditional medicine, tree roots, dried bamboo shoots...

Especially in this place, the life of the people is like in a fairy tales when there are just over 400 roofs but dozens of great-grandfather and great-grandmother have lived through a century but still lucid, healthy. Perhaps in a remote place like this, the people live in peace, not accustomed to competition, and focus on studious work, therefore they have led full life to the end./.
