Yen Ngua Islet

The Yen Ngua or Saddle Islet lies in Ha Long Bay, in the centre of the World Heritage Area.

Nature has creatively shaped two pieces of stone, one high and one lower, which are linked together to form an imposing rock, looking like a saddle. Boats can go through underneath.

The whole rock resembles a sewing machine. How wonderful to have such a magnificent but elegant “saddle”, jutting some 10 m above the sea surface.The two stones are linked with each other and look like a saddle from a far distance. Underneath the point where two stones are linked, small boats can sail through. So that, some people thought the islet is like a sewing machine than a saddle.

As its majestic setting and unique shape, Yen Ngua is one of interesting sites on Halong Bay that usually involved in cruising track of tourists when visiting Halong.
