4.5
#3 of 10 in Nature in Quang Nam Province

Named "Monkey Mountain" by American soldiers stationed here during the Vietnam War, the area remains covered with an evergreen tropical forests. Hike or bike along the main paved road for a chance to run into a family of doucs watching passers-by from the treetops. Observe these colorful acrobats, with white tails and golden faces, screaming and jumping from branch to branch. Notice the rope bridges suspended between trees, made specifically for the monkeys. Other residents of the mountain include long-tailed macaques, rhesus macaques, and pygmy slow lorises.

    Definitely a trip I can recommend! Just an amazing scooter ride up into the clouds. The view from the top of the mountain is just awesome!  more »

    You will find here only rare monkeys (best in the morning or afternoon), and otherwise is the charm of this Hill to be achieved only with the motorcycle in the fact that one goes through a densely wooded area and can enjoy sometimes beautiful views of the coast.

Where to stay in Da Nang

Da Nang contains surprisingly abundant hotel options, despite its relatively low-key tourism. The rainiest season lasts from September to December, while the drier spring sees more travelers; still, you generally don't need to book a room very far in advance. A broad range of hostels for backpackers on budgets clusters near the beach and on the west side of the Han River. Spectacular resorts line the oceanfront, many offering private beach access, spa packages, water sports, and diving.
