The Perfume Pagoda (Chua Huong) is in fact a vast complex of pagodas
and shrines built into the limestone Huong Tich mountains. From the
middle of the second lunar month to the end of the third lunar month,
it is the site of a very popular religious festival which draws large
numbers of pilgrims. You first start the trip by boating on a river
among a beautiful karstic landscape, then you hike quite a long trail,
which is all lined up with stands of food and religious souvenirs,
to reach eventually the main sanctuary in a cave. Along the way, there
are a great number of other places to worship. It is a festive occasion
for the Vietnamese who often make the trip in large groups.
