This place was previously a valley with many herds of deer gathering; now it becomes the fairly fascinating and wild destination after the hydroelectric dam is completely built.

From Ha Noi, tourists go along the highway 6 to Hòa Bình province, after visiting Da river hydroelectric dam, have a next drive of about 5 kilometers, and then turn out of highway to a small road around the mountain side. They will go on a boat at Thung Nai station to have a sightseeing of islands. There are Thac Bo(Thác Bờ) float market happening on Sunday morning every week, two temples worshipping Mrs. Dinh Thi Van (Đinh Thị Vân) who is Muong (Mường) people in Hao Trang (Hào Tráng) and a Dao woman in Vay Nua (Vầy Nưa) who helped King Lê Lợi to have food and rafts with her efforts when the king fight against Deo Cat Han (Đèo Cát Hãn) enemy in 1431. In the previous time, this temple was placed in the lake‘s heart, but since there has been Hoa Binh hydroelectric dam, it is moved to higher position. Both temples are highly supernatural and often organize the uniquely spiritual activities such as attending a séance on the early day of new year or ceremony of offerings to worship those women.
