The Bell at Ba Vi

About half way up Tan Vien mountain at Ba Vi National Park outside of Hanoi is a small Buddhist shrine with a beautiful bronze bell. It's about 600 steps to get here (see Ba Vi). The view is transformative.


Ba Vi

Ba Vi National Park is located about 65 km west of Hanoi. There are 1,229 steps to the summit of Ba Vi Mountain and the temple to Ho Chi Minh.  Halfway up is a small Buddhist shrine. [NOTE: The clip ends panning out over the Red River Valley towards Hanoi.]
