The central province of Quang Binh is famous for Ngang Pass, Nhat Le Sea and the world heritage Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park. These days, tourists to the province can discover one more attractive destination: Nuoc Mooc Stream.
Located in Phuc Trach Commune, Bo Trach District, Nuoc Mooc Stream connects with Chay River which is about 10 kilometers long and flows through Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park.
The stream winds around a dense limestone forest. The tropical limestone forest is home to many species of birds, insects and animals and a rich biodiversity with seasoned trees, orchids, ferns and lianas. Tourists should prepare suitable clothes to stroll through the dense groves to discover the wildlife and wallow in the cool water.
The stream includes many smaller currents of water separated by giant moss covered rocks. Sitting on the rocks under the shade of green trees is a nice option to take food, relax and capture the quiet, poetic surroundings.
In the upper reaches of the stream the currents are gentler and form large pools studded with rocks. These pools are good for swimming but be careful of the rocks.
After discovering the stream, tourists should take a kayak trip on the Chay River to see some mysterious dark caves and magnificent mountains. All remain pristine and boast poetic views and stillness.
