Cao Bang what to see

Cao Bang has several points of historical interest as well as many natural features such as the Pac Bo (at the mouth of the confluence of two rivers, the Bang Giang and Hien rivers) where Ho Chi Minh in January 1941 established a revolutionary force at Coc Bo cave, the Mac emperor’s Temple, the Ky Sam Temple, Coi Bin Church, the Ban Gioc waterfall area at the international border between Vietnam and China, and the Thang Hen Mountain Lake.

Pac Bo cave

Pac Bo, located at the mouth of the confluence of two rivers, namely the Bang Giang and Hien rivers. Its historicity is due to the fact that Ho Chi Minh, on his return from China (where he had lived for 30 years) on 28 January 1941, established a revolutionary force at a cave near Pac Bo valley inhabited by the Nung tribes.

Ky Sam Temple

Ky Sam Temple was built as a memorial at Nung village (200 metres (660 ft) east of Highway 203) of Ngan in honour of Nung Tri Cao, Nung Lord of Quang Uyen for organizing the ethnic minority revolt in the 11th century against the Vietnamese monarchy. The temple built in his honour, though ancient, is now a refurbished monument (renovated in the 19th century) consisting of two buildings. The outer building has the altar of one of his generals and the inner shrine housed the images of Cao, his wife and his mother till they were stolen a few years ago. An inscription still seen here narrates Cao’s war exploits and his avowed commitment to the cause of his nation.

Coi Binh Church

Coi Binh Church is one of the three churches that was built in 1906 by the French; the other two are at Cao Bang and That Khe. Except for the Vicar’s house the rest of the residential buildings around the church were destroyed in 1979. The vicarage is now the venue of “Cao Bang region’s most famous apiaries”.

Mac King’s Temple

Mac King’s Temple is the 16th-century palace of the Mac Dynasty. It is located on a hill top above the Lang Den (meaning the “Temple Village”). It is located on the west bank of the Dau Gen River, which is a tributary of the Bang Giang River. The construction of this palace is credited to a general of the Le Army in 1521–1522 after he forcibly dethroned the 11 year King Le Chieu Tong, exiled him and installed his brother Le Thung as the king. The small palace building has cannons placed near the main entrance even now.

Ban Gioc waterfall

Ban Gioc Waterfalls are located 80 kilometres (50 mi) north of Cao Bang city at the Vietnam-China Border. It originates from the Quy Xuan River and falls over a height of 30 metres (98 ft) and is 300 metres (980 ft) wide. At the top, the waterfall is seen in three parts divided by rocks and trees. As the water falls down the cliff and merges with sunlight, a seven-coloured rainbow formation is witnessed. Many green trees and flowers that perfume the air are located at the base of the fall. This water fall is the 4th largest waterfall along a national border in the world, the other three are Iguazu Falls, Victoria Falls, and Niagara Falls, in that order.

Thang Hen Mountain lake

Thang Hen Mountain lake, in Tra Linh district, consists of 36 small natural lakes located on the top of a hill at 1,000 metres (3,300 ft). The lakes have been created in limestone formations and some of them flow out as steams. An unusual feature of the lakes is that their water level fluctuates like the tides of the seas, which phenomenon is attributed to the springs of water emerging from artesian wells in limestone formations. The lakes flow through the river, which eventually becomes the Ban Gioc waterfall.
