Near Hanoi, Con Child is both delightful and notable, yet left off most of vacationer agendas. Pine woodlands, many years old, clear down the mountain reaches to antiquated pagodas and the perspectives from the peak are astounding.
The principal draw of Con Child is Con Child mountain and the thirteenth century pagoda that sits as its base. One of the three places of the Buddhist Truc Lam Trinity during the Tran Line, the pagoda went through rebuilding efforts during the seventeenth and eighteenth hundreds of years.
On the level top of the mountain is the “White Cloud Sanctuary”, farther up sits the incredible “Pixie Chessboard”
The story goes that guests showed up at the pagoda Vietnam motorcycle tours one sunny morning in fall. They remained the night then journeyed to the mountain the next morning. Hearing giggling as they rose they expected to see others on the mountain. Upon appearance the scene was unfilled put something aside for a chessboard left in the midst of a game. The guests reasoned that a few great gods probably slid from the mists to play, yet flew back when they heard others approach.
The move up Con Child Mountain isn’t precisely exhausting, yet you’d be fortunate not to start to perspire on a hot day. The 600 stage, 200 meter slant, covered with sweet papers and void containers camouflaged as tree trunks, is famous with Vietnamese and the odd outsider and little candy parlor stands selling water and soda pops in old glass bottles speck the way
The view merits the journey. Tranquil instead of staggering, it peers down the mountain and over quiet open country and rice fields.
The Kiep Bac celebration, held during the eighth lunar month, is of particular interest. It commends the triumphs of quite possibly of history’s most prominent general, General Tran Hung Dao.
Con Child is a simple roadtrip from the capital. Those unafraid of daring driving can get a transport from Gia Lam bus stop to Hai Duong City and take cabs or motorbike taxis from that point.
