  • Definitely be prepared for climbing and descending, sometimes slippery steps with uneven risers and widths. No railings, sometimes not even steps to access certain caves. There is an elevator, but one...  more »
  • You can go up to the middle of the mountain by elevator. From there, we would climb up the mountain by stairs, but it was a nice day and the view was good. Because it is a lot of tourists, the photograph is looking at the timing. There is a souvenir shop in the area, so it might be nice to stroll around.

  • If you happen to be in Da Nang and wondering what to do, I'd definitely recommend The Marble Mountain. It's a great half day trip with some really rewarding view from the top. At parts going up can be...  more »

  • Water mountain was my favourite. The last cave I went into here was just stunning. Down some steps the cave opened up to reveal a little pagoda temple built inside, an altar and a huge stone Buddha sat high up in the rock. Openings in the cave roof let in huge rays of sunshine. Absolutely beautiful. This was the best part of the marble temples. Do not miss this
  • Don't bother with the lift unless you're physically weak. Not that hard to get to the top and the spectacular view. If you've got kids, push them a little if they're not inclined to climb, it's totally worth it. A cool weather day makes for less sweat and the same panoramic view. I went on a 17 degree overcast day, perfect.
  • An amazing place definitely worth seeing. Only not giving five stars as can't possibly imagine how slippy it must be on a rainy day, we went on a sunny day and still had the odd slip on the marble. Quite a lot of clambering involved so take grippy shoes and lots of drinking water (although they sell this for cheap here). However the views are so worth it and the caves are beautiful. Could have easily spent a whole day here exploring.
  • This place is beautiful! But be prepared to sweat! The stairs are steep and big and a lot! It’s worth the exercise for sure. I would give this a 5 if it wasn’t for the street vendors before you get to the actual gates. They followed me the whole way up the street telling me where to go and how much it will be and how I should go back to their stall after. It’s not rocket science everything is clearly labelled where to purchase tickets etc... three separate people followed me around as I was just walking around relaxing before going up the mountain. I was pretty annoyed by it by the third person.
  • An awesome hike. Goes straight up and isn't that long. There is an elevator you can pay for if you are old or lazy. The top gives a good view and there are a few pagodas and monks around. There is one cave that makes you feel like Indiana Jones. If you have a motorbike the stores will get you to park at them and you have to buy something from the store.
