If you want to capture the best view of Danang, this is it. Go there for a day trip. Pack your bathing suite & camera. You won't regret.

Sure can! Took me under 2 hours to get from beginning of trail to top of the mountain :) Enjoy! I used my GPS and walked from the women Buddha to the start of the trail... asked some locals along the way. Definitely go.
