Pac Bo cave is in the most north-eastern part of Cao Bang province, next to the Chinese border. It is a very important site for Vietnamese, as it is seen as the starting point of the revolution that led to th independence of Vietnam. The reason for it is very simple – this is the place where Ho Chi Minh returned to Vietnam and stayed here for a few weeks. It is claimed that he started his campaign he planned for a long time. If you ar interested in history, this is an interesting site. But even if you are not interested in history, Pac Bo is a worthwhile destination due to the beautiful setting
Before reaching the cave itself you pass a pagoda on a hill to your left. You can leave the bike at the gate next to the stall and pass the large park. You can either walk up the hill to your right after the park, or you can climb the stairs at the front of the hill. From the top the hill you have a nice view of the surrounding area. And on the top is the pagoda with a shrine for Ho Chi Minh, including a statue fo Uncle Ho. It seems visiting Vietnamese leave little offerings for him on the shrine. So it is a pilgrimage for Vietnamese to this place.
