Stopped at this place on our way to Hoi An. (After the "compulsory" stop at one of the marble statue shops..) Decided to take the elevator to the top of the mountain. (You'll have to pay again if you want to take the elevator back down..) On the top of the mountain, you get a nice view of the area below. Theres lots of small pagodas and caves to look at on the mountain, and it's nice just walking around at your own pace. Be aware of very slippery steps inside the caves though. I would bring a flashlight, as some of the caves had parts where it was pitch-dark when we were there. Also we managed to get a bit lost while we were there, as one of the paths were closed due to some maintenance work. We ended up going down some stairs on the wrong side of the mountain which led to a tiresome "climb" back up.. A couple of signs (in english) showing the way in that area would have been nice.. If you need to use the restroom, be prepared to pay a little. How much was up to me the lady said, but she didn't seem too happy when i gave her the only small bill i had (5000 dong)..

All in all, I'd say it's worth a visit if you have some spare time.

Marble mountain isn't too far to travel too. There are lots of pagodas and temples to look at. There are lots of stairs though which would be very hard on a hot day. It wasn't hot when we went. There are also caves to go through and lots of Buddhas to look at. It takes maybe an hour and a half to climb the mountain and look at everything there. There are also stores to buy marble souvenirs. Make sure you barter though! Very easy to get the price down.

After reading reviews here we were surprised at lower prices at the mountain. Current pricing is 15,000 dong for admission, same for the separate lower cave. The lift was also only 30,000 dong which made it much better value than the previous 90,000. We weren't expecting a lot but we're very pleasantly surprised. The back of one cave, van thong?, had a crawl climb that took you right up to the top for an amazing view, easy to over look though. The vendors weren't too pushy just normal for Vietnam. Great day out

Interesting place, nice to look at and the entrance fee is acceptable. Has a very nice cave with a big Buddha. Overall it's not too special but worth a trip if you have time and are in Da Nang or Hoi An anyway.

We went with a local guide (Tommy Dao Tours) and his knowledge, as well as the shear beauty of this place made for a stunning experience.

The history and presentation of this place is stunning. Recent historic involvement with the war of the 60 & 70's, as well as the 13th century.

In addition the place is simply fabulous. The view of the mountains, and the ocean is stunning.

We took the stairs up & down, which is quite a hike, but not unduly harsh (my wife and I are mid 50's). The variety of the pagodas, and the caves was amazing.
