Marble Mountains, located just to the south of Da Nang are a cluster of five hills made of marble and limestone. Marble Mountains are highly revered for the Buddhist sanctuaries and other ancient sites found here. Located just off the coastal road, each mountain is said to be dedicated to the 5 natural elements.
The Marble Mountains are a well-known pilgrimage site, comprised of many caves, grottoes, tunnels, and temples, hemmed in by the fringes of these hills. Marred by the war just like the rest of Vietnam, the traces of bullet holes from can still be found on these hills.
Do remember, however, that the Thuy Son Mountain is the only one open to the tourists. Tourists climb up the mountains to enjoy breathtaking views stretching to the Non-Nuoc (My Khe Beach). There are many pagodas from the early 17th century and other caves waiting to be explored. More hikes will lead you to other spectacular sights like Tam Quan Gate, Riverview Tower, Van Nguyet Grotto and Lantern Cave.
