It is beautiful to visit Ha Long Bay in autumn, and taking a short tour to Ba Hang will undoubtedly help visitors enjoy their trip to the fullest.
Ba Hang is a calm water area surrounded by high mountains. It was accidentally discovered by local fishermen on their way to look for shelter from a storm. The area boasts charming landscapes and amazing caves.
The fishermen also found other caves which are exposed when the tide goes out. Inside the caves there are large and peaceful spaces with a rich array of aquatic species.
According to the geological research of Ha Long Bay’s Management Board, the name Ba Hang (Three Caves) comes from the fact that small lakes in the area are connected together by the mouths of the three caves.
What attracts tourists the most in Ba Hang is their tranquil beauty, clear and calm seawater, and fresh air. It is even more perfect to discover the area by kayak in autumn.
Located in Hung Thang Ward, Ha Long City, Na Hang is part of the Thien Cung – Dau Go tourist route. Visitors can kayak to the lovely Ba Hang fishing village after concluding their trip to Dau Go cave.
