Nuoc Mooc Eco Trail

My penultimate day in Phong Nha-Ke National  Park felt more like  the North West of England than Vietnam.

Damp, dripping in fact.  So may be not the best time to take a motorbike ride.

But wrapped up ‘appropriately’, my UK waterproofs under a Vietnamese cape I headed up to the park.  Interesting driving with out a visor.

Wall to wall sunshine would have been good.  But it is December and as with anywhere mountains have their own agenda.  The mist hung around to see what was happening in the valleys, infiltrating the gaps between the hills like smoke.

The Nuoc Mooc Spring emerges in a vast pool from under the limestone hills.  Minerals  painting it a glossy blue to contrast with the fighting white foam.

It the joins the river  Chay to continue its battle over rocks and through to the quieter, wider valley.

The Eco Trail by the river is only 1km long.  I loitered so long trying to take that perfect shot the ticket man came to look for me.  Clearly an hour is too long to look at a few waterfalls.
