Lenin stream in Pac Bo Cave

Lenin stream

Visitors can go along Lenin streams crossing the cliffs with greenery forest, sometimes, we have to cross rugged paths full gravel and stone. Coc Bo cave appears in the choppy rocky mountainside. Despite the fact that, many years have passed, the relic has tried to keep intact, the remnants of despicable attacks and war caused by the enemy are still clear on the disorder pieces of stone mounted by cement and green moss. The cave is over 10m2 wide, some dozens of meter long, and is very wet and cold because of the water oozing from the cliffs. In the cave, there is a stalactite emerging, it looks like a human face with long hair and beard, so Uncle Ho named it Karl Marx statue.

Co Bo Cave

Coc Bo cave- where Uncle Ho lived and worked during the time in Pac Bo

In the stream bank, the stone table where Uncle Ho sat and worked every day, and the large rock where he fished for relaxing are still there, all of them leave a deep impression about the simplicity of the great leader in mind and heart of the posterity. Coc Bo Cave went down in history along with the living and working time place of Uncle Ho in this revolutionary homeland.

 Inside the temple, the statue of Uncle Ho with peaceful sitting position carved from bronze is majestically placed in the most solemn place in the main hall. Above the statue, there is an inscription “Hong Nhat Cao Minh” (i.e red sun shines from above).
