  • Cons: I imagined to find major mountains and was only a type cerro mogote, with higher points. The wonderful view to desolate beaches and the sea, is no longer. It passes the highway and is full of buildings. Mist also helps too. We got with the glazed lift at an excessive cost and neither takes you too high. Do not go into the elevator. The attention of all the people I was apathetic. In favour: is a lovely walk for a couple of hours or more. It has a trailhead and some alternatives to exit and return to the trail. I recommend making it, if you spare yourself the time

  • Take the time of visiting this beautiful place during your stay. The entrance of the mountain is around 60k vnd, there are pagodas, huge caves, statues, and seeing sites all surrounded by rocks and tr...  more »
  • Wow the caves here were pretty neat! There is an elevator up to the first level but stairs going up. There’s a cave and it is not good for those who can’t climb. You have to climb through a hole to ge...  more »

  • 10/10, four thumbs up, would recommend. The sites of coast below are alone worth the trip up. Throw in the history, both ancient as a religious site and more modern as a hideout for the North Vietnamese during the war, and this one is an amazing experience that is a must do if you are close. Many, many steps if you don't take the elevator, but they are nice and worth it.
  • Fantastic place. Climbed up the back of the mountain, lots of stairs, LOTS OF STEEP STAIRS. Go the normal route unless you really like stairs. There are some good views once you get to the actual "park" it has many statues and shrines scattered throughout. One of the caves has a through way to "Heaven Gate" but it is recommended to have a flashlight of some sort. It looks like a tight squeeze, but I was able to get through with a 55L pack on.
  • A great activity to do which takes around 2 hours. You can walk through giant caverns as well as take the stairs over the mountain. For older people or those who want a less strenuous option, there is a lift available too. Beautiful temple at the top. Lots of marble products are for sale, but the only negative is that the sellers are quite aggressive.
  • The actual name of this place is The Scenic Five Elements Mountains. I think tourist thought the name is marble mountains because there are so many marble based craft being offered in the area of the water mountain, the most visited one. There are actually 5 of them as the name said, but I didn't have time to go to the other four because I wasn't aware of them beforehand. The view is beautiful but the path could really use some maintenance, so if you go there, donate some cash, don't complain of the elevator charge.
  • Make sure you have trainers /good walking shoes on...lots of steps and it can be a little slippery in the caves. Once inside the caves...you're in for a surprise ! Amazing ! I was worried about feeling a little panicky in there but was so distracted by all the things to see and busy taking photos I forgot I was in a cave. Be prepared for some very odd looking things as well...my husband said it was like one of his weird dreams !! The view at the top is fabulous...just be aware you have to pay to get to the top in the glass lift and also to come back down....we walked back down which is fine as long as you have good footwear.

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.
