The Marble Mountains
The Marble Mountains, a famous tourist attraction and pilgrimage site in Da Nang, is a cluster of five marble-and-lime mountains topped with different pagodas.
Just off the road along the coastal area of Da Nang, you will find the towering landmark which is known for its interesting legend — locals believe that The Marble Mountains came from the shell of a dragon’s egg. Each mountain is named after the element it is believed to represent: Hoa Son (Fire), Kim Son (Metal), Thuy Song (Water), Moc Son (Wood), and Tho Son (Earth). Hike to the top and be amazed at the panoramic view of all of Non Nuoc and My Khe Beach. On the base of the mountain, you’ll find villages specialising in marble sculptures.
