Phuong Hoang (Phoenix) cave and Mo Ga stream
Phuong Hoang (Phoenix) cave and Mo Ga stream in Vo Nhai district, Thai Nguyen province is a national landscape. Those who love the nature can visit this tourist site to enjoy climbing mountains and bathing in a fresh and cool stream, or visit a relic of the Bac Son-Vo Nhai uprising.
Located at the 42nd kilometre on national highway 1B (linking Thai Nguyen and Lang Son provinces), Phuong Hoang cave and Mo Ga stream is a famous national landscape which still keeps a mysterious natural beauty.

The cave and Mo Ga stream are part of a complex of limestone mountains. To reach the cave, visitors have to walk on a zigzagging precipitous path. Tiredness after one hour walking will disappear when they reach the cave, enjoying both its natural beauty and fresh and cool air. Stalactites inside the cave will help visitors imagine their watching an elephant kneeing down, or lions dancing and a woman embracing her child. Looking up, they can see a phoenix spreading its wings to welcome visitors.
The cave is not only a famous landscape but also a historical relic of the Bac Son-Vo Nhai uprising against the French colonialists. On November 27, 1944, militia and 373 local families with all the weapons they had: flint-locks, scimitars, stone traps and grenades pined a battalion of French soldiers down, causing a severe damage to them.

Going 150 metres farther from the cave gate, visitors will reach Mo Ga stream. This may be a cave-stream with water flowing from the inside. It is unclear how long the cave is. Going about 300 or 400 metres further inside the cave, visitors can see a fascinating beauty of the cave. Stones look like beds of fairies. Visitors can have a great pleasure swimming on a cool stream. Going there, visitors will have chance to taste some local delicious specialty dishes like bamboo-tube rice or wine.
