Marble Mountain of Danang

The Marble Mountains, which are located a short distance from the city center, are well-known to anyone who has visited Danang City and serve as a symbol of the region. The atmosphere created by pagodas and grottoes in a natural mountain setting, combined with the background murmur of waves from the nearby coast, makes the mountains a popular tourist destination.

 

The Marble Mountains, situated in Hoa Hai Ward, Ngu Hanh Son District, are a popular tourist attraction in Danang. They are 8 kilometers southeast of Danang's central area and 20 kilometers north of Hoi An. They are made up of five mountains, each with its own set of mysterious caves, Buddha statues, and lovely pagodas. Each mountain is named after a natural element it is said to represent: Water (Thuy Son), Wood (Moc Son), Fire (Hoa Son), Gold (Kim Son), and Silver, Earth (Tho Son).

These mountains, like other landscapes, have a variety of mysterious legends. The mountains have their own personality due to the echoes of many mysterious legends. Metal, wood, water, fire, and earth were the five elements that created the universe according to ancient oriental philosophy. Five is the most important number in people's minds and daily lives. The five peaks, metal, wood, water, fire, and earth, still provide a mysterious link to the past.

Thuy Son Mountain is the main attraction for most visitors. It is the group's largest and has the most caverns. Climb the stairwells to the different viewing platforms on the exterior for spectacular views of the area, including China Beach, a few miles away. 

Various Buddhist statues, some freestanding and others carved wonderfully out of the living rock, may be found in many of the caverns. The outlying slopes are lined with pagodas and temples, and some of the caverns include old structures — don't miss the stunning Huyen Khong Cave.

Another cave can be found at the base of the mountain. This is Dong Am Phu Cave, often known as "Hell Cave." It was used as a field hospital during the American Vietnam War and has since been transformed with colourful lights and beautiful sculptures depicting the afterlife destiny of individuals who have either been wicked or pleasant during their lives. It's a true underworld, and it's definitely worth a visit.

Most of the other nearby mountainous areas have several caves and pagodas, each worth visiting.

You can walk up the 108 steps to Ling Ung Pagoda to visit Marble Mountains, sit at Vong Giang Tower and see the green Truong Giang in the sunset and at Vong Hai Tower, where you can view sandy beaches with sea-waves in flaccid waters.
