For those who are into eastern religious motifs, reliefs, artifacts, pagodas, etc... This one is really, really rustic, old and surprisingly peaceful.. Because it's tucked away in the mountain with passageways to small caves within the mountain itself, serenity is an easy find there. I was amazed at one of the statues carved out of the stone within one of the caves there that had survived the bombings of the Vietnam war. The best part is, for those who mobility challenged or just don't like walking up stairs, there's an elevator that brings you to the top of the mountain anyways which from the eastern point, overlooks Danang beach.... Only one thing though, beware of young guys trying to be helpful with the joss sticks and incense, they'll light up the joss sticks for you and take you around (which is all fine) until they ask for money. This is illegal by the way, the admission fee paid downstairs covers everything already. I had put money in the donation for maintainance in the temple itself and he still asked for money inspite of seeing me do this. The monk later on came out and scolded him, apologized to me and wished me well.

The marble mountains are worth a visit but go early as they are extremely touristy and there can be over a hundred people in each cave.

Great half day self guided tour with lots to explore and great views. Some fantastic shopping bargains to be had when you get back to the bottom of the mountain.

This is not much of a review i know but it might serve as a slight warning for anyone booking a cheap deal, as I booked through some local tour company ( Can't remember the name ) in Hoi An for what i thought was the perfect trip by hiring a car & driver to take us on a full day trip/excursion taking in the Marble Mountain, Hue, and Vinh Hoch tunnels a complete 300mile round trip, however after first being assured we would be going up the Mountain first but this turned out to be a complete farce. First on arrival we were told that we didn't have enough time to climb the said Mountain due to the fact we didn't have the time as it would take too long etc, so after much deliberation and and a few choice words, it was decided he was right. Which meant we parked outside some marble souvenir shop at the foot of the mountain and walked about fifty yards followed swiftly by the lady shop keeper and stood on a pile of rubble and took some photos of the pagoda etc, while the owner of the shop kept tugging my arm and saying " Please come look in my shop sir"..! Oh yes and what endearing memories of the Marble Mountain we have, ones which will stay in our minds for years. Needless to say we beat a hasty retreat and the moral here is watch what you pay for and make sure you DO get up the Mountain to see what looks like a worthwhile attraction one which i regret missing, thankfully the rest of the trip went OK..!

I rent a scooter and ride from Da Nang beach area to Marble Mountain.. we we charged 5000 dong for motorcycle parking.. the elevator is unique and faster way to get to the top.. but u'll need to pay to use it.. if not, u'll have to climb up the stairs.. the caves, statues and view are spectacular.. definitely the place to visit if u're in Da Nang..
