The grotto is 5 km far from Yen Lac town. Fairy Grotto has appeared naturally for a long time. Legend says that once upon a time there were 7 fairies landing at the foot of Phja Trang Mountain to swim. They enjoyed so much that they did not know that the night came. They could no longer fly back to the heaven. God created a grotto for them to reside. Since then, the grotto has been called "Fairy Grotto". On 13 September 1999, the Ministry of Culture and Information signed decision on recognizing the Grotto as beauty spot at national level.
3. Hua Ma cave
Hua Ma cave is ranked among the most beautiful and interesting caves in the national park, because of its magnificent stalactites and the legend that has been told for generations
The cave has been naturally shaped during the many-thousand-year process of geological changes. It is 700 meters in length and in some places the cave opens up and is 50 meters in height.
The view outside the cave is also great. From the mouth of the cave, people could see a large space, a vast picture of mountains, forests and water. Tourists could see Ba Be Lake and the Nang River running smoothly in distance, could hear birds singing elsewhere and imposing mountains and forest in front.
If lucky enough, tourists could participate in a local monthly market to admire girls and boys of several local ethnic minorities in their traditional colourful costume. Tourists can enjoy local typical specialties and would get drunk with “Can” wine and unconsciously fall in love with the place and people.
Pac Ngoi Village has more than 40 traditional stilt houses locating on the slope of mountains which surround Ba Be Lake, emphasizing the beauty of this famous eco-tourism destination.
Surprisingly, while the traditional stilt houses have almost been eradicated in many other provinces, the antique, unique and original houses of ethnic groups are still highly valued and preserved in Pac Ngoi despite the presence of modern architecture.
Tourists in Vietnam travel coming to Pac Ngoi are not only entitled to witness with their naked eyes the most wonderful scenery of Northern Vietnam: a plethora of austere yet interesting stilt houses blending themselves with the glimmering mist and the shinning Ba Be Lakes, but also to stay in the rhythm of the Tay culture.
This claim can be easily proven by the fact that visitors joining tours in Vietnam have to remove their shoes once they step the very first steps on the staircase of a stilt house. Inside the house, ethnic people gather around the gleaming fireplace, forgetting themselves in the sophisticate stories about the economy or the politic.
