Near Hanoi, Con Child is both lovely and memorable, yet left off most of traveler schedules. Pine woods, many years old, clear down the mountain reaches to old pagodas and the perspectives from the mountain ridge are dynamite.
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 unbelievable “Pixie Chessboard”
The story goes that guests showed up at the pagoda one crisp morning in pre-winter. They remained the night then, at that point, traveled to the mountain the next morning. Hearing chuckling as they rose they expected to see others on the mountain. Upon appearance the scene was unfilled put something Vietnam bike tours aside for a chessboard left in the midst of a game. The guests reasoned that a few superb gods probably dropped from the mists to play, yet flew back when they heard others approach.
The move up Con Child Mountain isn’t precisely difficult, however 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 masked as tree trunks, is well known with Vietnamese and the odd outsider and little ice cream parlor stands selling water and sodas in old glass bottles speck the way
The view merits the trip. Quiet as opposed to terrific, it peers down the mountain and over serene open country and rice fields.
The Kiep Bac celebration, held during the eighth lunar month, is of particular interest. It praises the triumphs of quite possibly of history’s most noteworthy general, General Tran Hung Dao.
Con Child is a simple roadtrip from the capital. Those unafraid of courageous driving can get a transport from Gia Lam bus stop to Hai Duong City and take taxicabs or motorbike taxis from that point.
