Find the hidden charm of Kho Muong Village in Pu Luong, Thanh Hoa

Kho Muong is a wild valley hidden deep in Pu Luong Mountain, Thanh Hoa Province. On the journey discovering Pu Luong Thanh Hoa, do not forget to visit the attraction to admire endless terraces of rice and streams winding through the mountain.

1. Kho Muong Village Introduction

It is about 30 kilometers far from Cang Nang town, Ba Thuoc District, Thanh Hoa Province to Kho Muong Village, Thanh Son Commune. The place belongs to Pu Luong Nature Reserve, completely separated from others in the area. Therefore, there is little effect on the original beauty of the village.

The roadway leading to the attraction is quite challenging due to the current reconstruction. However, it is worth experiencing a picturesque landscape. One side is rocky cliffs, and the other is green forests on high mountains and terraces spreading out alongside. The journey is perfect for any challenge-lover to come closer to nature. Moreover, tourists can have a true tourism agency to take them to their destination.

Kho Muong has another popular name "Hua Muong". In local words, the name means the first place people colonized in the area. About 300 years ago, some locals in Lung Cao went to this forest for hunting. Then they found this land with comparatively flat terrain and a plentiful source of water. Therefore, they decided to bring along their family to establish a village here.

Kho Muong Valley is quite flat. The area of 280 hectares is the home of 230 people who earn their living mostly by growing rice, corn, and cassava. Especially, they are supposed to be self-sufficient. Until recently, thanks to the dominance of natural resources, they have learned to develop tourism services by setting up some bigger guest houses in the area.

The most suitable time to visit the attraction is from May to October when the rice has ripened. A wide area of terraces is covered in bright yellow under morning sunshine and brings about a feeling of peace and opulence. Looking farther, forests still keep their lively green color, spotted with stilt houses scattering. From these houses, the flavor of rice together with fresh straw spreads out attracting every tourist there.

The roadway to the cave is also challenging with old trees covering. The spot is created by thousands of great blocks of limestone having existed for 250 million years. The cave is connected with a system deep in the ground to bring water from Kho Muong to Pon Village, Lung Cao Commune. The system of rivers and streams in the cave creates a connection throughout these valleys. 

The cave is quite slopping and slippery. There are thousands of stalactites in strange shapes showing how magic nature is. Taking steps alongside these cliffs and entering deep in the heart, tourists will get more excitement with colorful stones and the sound of water dripping down from the ceiling.
