Photos: The road to Perfume pagoda in the autumn

  • 02:33 - 2014/12/01

Around 60km southwest of Hanoi, Perfume Pagoda is one of the largest and unique religious sites in Vietnam. It comprises a complex of pagodas and Buddhist shrines built into the limestone cliffs of Perfume Mount, scattered alongside the mountain up to the peak. To reach the well-known pagoda, visitors must go by boat on the Yen stream.

Yen stream flows between two mountains for 3 km. Sitting on the boat, enjoying the leisurely ride through the surrounding landscape, the tourists may feel that the stream is endless.

Huong pagoda festival began on the 6th day of the first month on the lunar calendar, but Yen stream is packed with boats full of tourists through March. During the festive season, the stream is lined with boats carrying pilgrims who have come to enjoy the landscape of Huong pagoda.

In the autumn (October-November), the stream has become a destination of photographers who come to capture its romantic beauty.
