NUOC MOOC STREAM QUANG BINH PROVINCE
NUOC MOOC STREAM. Nestled under evergreen forests, its limestone ranges covered with jungle, Nuoc Mooc stream resembles a glittering green silk scarf, bringing a charming beauty to Quang Binh mountain and forest. Located relatively close to other famous landscapes in Quang Binh province, such as Thien Duong cave, Chay River, and Toi (Dark) cave, Nuoc Mooc stream remains preserved almost intact with wild beauty. From Dong Hoi City (Quang Binh Province), following the eastern branch of Ho Chi Minh Road roughly 60km to the north, visitors will meet the Khe Gat Junction. From here, turning onto the western branch of Ho Chi Minh Road for about 5km, visitors will arrive at Mooc Stream, which is like a fairyland and an ideal stopover after exploring the cave during hot summer days.
The stream is a clean and natural blue water source erupting from the mountain foot to form a 90m² lake which then flows into Chay River. It is a unique and amazing natural phenomenon. This cool stream runs through mountains and forests with average temperatures from 16 to 18°C in the summer. In the downstream, there are countless reefs and waterfalls. On the stream bed, there are large rocks and pebbles.
Realising the diversified tourism potential in Mooc Stream Area, Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park Management Board invested in constructing Mooc StreamTourist Area with many interesting items. At the tourist area, visitors can saunter on wooden bridges linking the two stream’s banks to admire the spectacular beauty of the mountains and forests and it is also the ideal place for visitors to swim, kayak, or participate in the games of high diving and ziplines.
In particular, visitors also have the opportunity to enjoy rural dishes such as grilled eel, grilled chicken, wild vegetables, etc., in the “birds-nest” shaped restaurants hung on the old trees. These restaurants are built out of environmentally friendly materials such as bamboo, palm trees, etc.
Nuoc Mooc Stream area is also the habitat of many species of plants and animals, typically Ha Tinh langur, a primitive species listed in the Red Book of Viet Nam. Coming to Nuoc Mooc Stream to immerse themselves in the clear and cool water with unspoiled natural space will provide visitors with exciting relaxation.
