“Perfume Pagoda” (“Chua Huong” in Vietnamese) is a vast complex of Buddhist temples and shrines built into the limestone mountains. The many Pagodas that make up Chua Huong are spreat out among the limestone hills and tropical forests in the area of Huong Mountain. The site is always the best choice for any travel to include in their Vietnam Tour Packages.
The main pilgrimage season at Perfume Pagoda is during the Huong Pagoda festival, when hundreds of thousands of pilgrims make their way to Huong Tich cave and the other temples. The longest lasting festival in Vietnam, it officially begins on February 15 on the lunar calendar, but the peak in visitors lasts from the middle of January to the middle of March. The Festival is seen by some as a good opportunity for young people to find romance and begin courtships. Many restaurants in Huong Pagoda kill and butcher wildlife including civits, deer, porcupine, wild pig and serve it as special, rare or expensive meat which is particularly popular during the festival period.
