Rafting, wrestling, archery and traditional dance performances of ethnic groups are held during the festival.
See and Do at Ba Be ?
Ba Be lake - One of the best ways to experience the incredible beauty of Ba Be is from the water, from here you can explore the rivers, lakes and caves that make up this area of stunning beauty. You can take a boat trip on one of the small boats to take in the highlights of Ba Be or, if you are feeling more adventurous, you can take a kayak and explore the area. Kayaking has the added benefit of being able to get closer to nature which will give you a more intimate experience.
An Ma Temple - One of the places to visit on your waterborne adventure is An Ma Temple which sits peacefully next to the lake creating a serene ambience. Here you can bathe in the relaxing atmosphere and learn about the religion and rituals of the local people.
Fairy Pond - Another peaceful spot on the lake is known as Fairy Pond, which is situated in the third section of the lake. The name is well suited to the area as it certainly has a magical feel about it. Legend has it that some fairies, who had been bathing in the secluded waters, lured a local huntsman and put a spell on him. The local fishermen, however, are not put off by this mystical tale and often enjoy fishing peacefully in the waters.
Widow’s Island - One more spot shrouded in local legend is Widow’s Island which sits in the middle of the lake, inviting you to explore its tangle of rocks, roots and branches. The large chunk of rock topped with a thick green forest has an air of mystery surrounding it as it sits alone in the middle of the lake. The name of the island originates from the story of a kind widow and her son who once lived on the island. It is believed that they saved many people from the natural disaster that created Ba Be using only two husks of rice from a fairy.
Puong Cave - Ba Be also has a fascinating collection of caves just waiting to be explored. One of the most impressive caves in Ba Be is Puong Cave with a height of 30m and length of 300m. This large, dark cavern sits at the bottom of Lung Nham Mountain and was created by years of erosion by the Nang River. This tunnel cave looms over the river and visitors can explore the cave by boat. The dark mouth of the cave leads to a magical maze of stalactites and stalagmites which cast shadows across the tall limestone walls. This amazing hidden world is also the home of thousands of bats. The colonies living amongst nature’s sculpture are made up of an impressive 18 species.
Hua Ma cave - Another extraordinary cave is Hua Ma Cave, which is not only stunningly beautiful but also has a haunting and fascinating back story. Local people named the cave Hua Ma, meaning horses head because of the legend that precedes it. The story is that a king and his staff were travelling through the area, but when the king’s horse approached Hua Ma cave it became paralysed with fear and refused to cross a stream near to the cave. Frustrated by the horse's behaviour, the king asked the local people about the area and discovered that the cave was inhabited by the spirits of innocent people who had been killed. The locals described the harrowing cries that emanated from the cave after dark and the King, moved by the tragedy, decided he would find a way to free the lost souls from the dark cave. He ordered his soldiers to behead horses and send their heads downstream and he himself took to a temple to recite Buddhist scriptures. Since the King freed the souls, no cries have been heard from the cave. For many years this haunting tale kept many local people away, but now, those brave enough to enter the cave will be rewarded with stunning views of rock formations. Recently, developments to the cave have made more easily accessible and the 300 m climb to the entrance is well worth the effort. As you ascend into the dark recesses of the cave you are met with an otherworldly melee of stalactites and stalagmites which appear to morph into different objects as you pass by.
Lo Mo cave - The karst cavern of Lo Mo Cave follows an underground river for around 3000 meters. In the dark recesses of the cave, stalagmites and stalactites cut through the cool air, some reaching up to 40 meters in height. The towering columns shimmer in the lights used to light the way and cast shadows which appear to morph seamlessly from one thing to the next. The cave is also a flourishing ecosystem, providing a habitat for some rare species of flora and fauna. Although this cave is not yet open to the public, due to its very recent discovery, plans are underway to have the cave open to budding explorers in 2017.
Food and Drink at Ba Be?
Because of Ba Be’s favourable farming and fishing conditions, the food found here is varied and fresh. From locally grown vegetables to free range meat and fish from the lakes and rivers, the feasts you will enjoy with your hosts are sure to leave you wanting more.
One such dish is Lon Cap Nach which translates to pig carried under the arm, so called because of the size of the pigs. These pigs are around just 10kg in weight and are raised wild in the surrounding fields and forests and have a sweet and tender meat. Here you will smell the fragrant spices as the meat is grilled or roasted ready for the evening meal.
All meals are served with a ion of freshly prepared, nutritious vegetables. One such side dish is chayote served with sesame. The mild sweetness of the green vegetable beautifully compliments the earthy nutty flavour of the sesame.
Another accompanying dish, eaten en masse across Asia is, of course, rice. Here you can find the northern speciality of com lam. For this dish, young bamboo is stuffed with a mixture of rice, water and sometimes coconut water. The package is then wrapped in banana leaves and cooked on a fire. The end result is fragrant, sweet and sticky rice which is the perfect accompaniment to the succulent meats and fresh vegetables.
After a delicious and satisfying feast, when the sun has faded over the mountain, it is time to relax and enjoy a cup or two of Noc Suong the local rice wine. This powerful homebrew is a popular way to unwind and bond after a hard days work. Served from plastic water bottles while you sit atop tiny chairs, this clear spirit will keep you warm on the coldest of nights and make for a unforgettable night!
