From Dong Hoi City (Quang Binh Province), following the eastern branch of Ho Chi Minh Road about 60km to the north, visitors meet Khe Gat Junction. From here, turning to the western branch of Ho Chi Minh Road for about 5km, visitors arrive in Mooc Stream.
The stream is a clean and blue natural water source erupting from the mountain foot to form a 90m² lake and then flows to Chay River. This is a unique and amazing natural phenomenon. This cool stream runs through mountains and forests with average temperatures from 16 to 18°C in the summer. In downstream, there are countless reefs and waterfalls. Inside the stream bed, there are large rocks, wild pebbles such as Tam Hop, Dao Tien, etc.
