The best time to visit Nuoc Mooc Stream
The best time to visit Nuoc Mooc Stream is from the months of March to August. March is yellow flowers season, in which the stream becomes especially attractive for tourists with white butterflies fluttering through the air.
This type of flower is a symbol of buddhism, which grown in most temples. Legend has it that at the garden of the monastic Lam ty Ni, ashoka tree flower are grown a lot. In the same time, when Ma Da Queen with her entourage away from her home country to give birth to her first child, she went through the Garden of Lumbini. Here, she ordered to stop to enter the forest park, walking and going sightseeing. While coming to the ashoka garden, she saw flowers bloomed, sweet and fragrant, and then handed them flowers. Soon after that, under the ashoka tree flower, the queen gave birth to Prince Tat Dat Da, the founder of Buddhism later. The name of the flower means sorrow-less, expressing the spirit of liberation of Buddhism.
