Thrilling Cable Car & Boat Ride to the Perfume Pagoda, Hanoi | Vietnam Travel Guide | Part 01

"Vietnam Diary" with travel guide & thrilling experience of cable car & boat ride to Perfume Pagoda.

Perfume Pagoda (Huong Pagoda) is a big complex of Buddhist temples and shrines built into the Huong Tich mountains. Getting to the pagodas requires a journey first by road, then by river, then on foot or by cable car.


Travel from Hanoi by car for two hours to My Duc, then take a small boat. This entertaining boat trip travels along scenic waterways between limestone cliffs.

The price to ride on the cable car is VND80,000 each way. You may find the boat ride & the cable car up into the hills worth it in itself.

There are numerous pagodas around the site and strewn over the mountain. It is thought that the first temple was a small structure on the current site of Thien Tru which existed during the 15th century.

Legend claims that the site was discovered over 2000 years ago by a monk meditating in the area. He named the site after a Tibetan mountain where Lord Buddha practiced asceticism.

Many travelers make the trip out of faith, but clearly for others, religion is an excuse to get away from the grind.
