Great day out in the mountains. Suggest to take the lift up (pay around VND15k) and walk your way down. Time spent 1-2hrs.

The complex of ancient pagodas and caves is very beautiful. It is definitely better to use the elevator. Well worth a look around.

We visited on 29 Sept 2022. The marble mountains area is slightly affected by the storm and is experiencing some power outages. The elevator is not operating today but would likely be resumed soon. There are local buses that stop nearby. We took a Grab from the bridges to gate A.

Gate A/ gate 1 entrance is closed today as they are clearing the fallen tree. Gate B is open and available for entry. Most sites are accessible and the locals are still clearing up the debris in some areas.

The place is free to visit and 40k for elevator (optional). There are donation boxes at most sites. Do contribute if you have spare change as they are run and maintained by locals and especially now where they are picking up after the storm.

The nearby stalls and locals do marble carving and craft and sell many ornaments. Do try and support them especially if you are interested in home decor. Some of the stall owners speak decent English.

There are some drink stalls around and within the areas and free toilets available.

The steps are pretty steep and undulating and can be slippery. Walk with care and wear shoes with good grip or high ankle boots if you are prone to slip or tripping.

Beautiful pagodas and Buddha statues set among mountain forest and caves. We really enjoyed the couple of hours we spent exploring here. We took the elevator up and walked back down where there were cafes for us to grab fresh cold drinks.
Worth the visit but you’ll need to be fit and be wearing sneakers because there’s A LOT of stairs and parts that are tricky to navigate (steep climbs, narrow footholds).
It was rainy season when we visited - cloudy and 30C degrees. I couldn’t imagine doing this in the heat of Vietnamese summer!
Also, be prepared for the hard sell on marble statues and ornaments- the streets at the foot of the mountains are lined with stores selling these.

It was a perfect day for us to visit Marble mountain. Cool and breezy. Our guide explained that the mountains are cluster of five marble and limestone hills. And they are appropriately named after the five elements: Kim (metal), Thuy (water), Moc (wood), Hoa (fire) and Tho (earth).

We explored some caves and several Buddhist sanctuaries.

A place like Marble Mountain would be an amazing tourist asset to any region. Except Da Nang and Hoi An (and Viet Nam) have allowed it to become a tourist trap, a place where travellers are harassed, and heavy handedly encouraged to get ripped off at their marble stores.

After a long day of sight seeing, on a incredibly hot and humid day, my easy rider motorcyclist left me in the hands of a local seller, who I was introduced to as someone who would show me to one of two entrances to the mountain. I of course worked out later that the seller was just trying to funnel me towards the exit I would descend to later on, where she would wait, and attempt to exploit as the tired, sweaty, and exhausted traveller I would be after exploring the mountain.

I did get exploited that day, to my shame, as I paid for an item over the odds in a moment of weakness.

Marble Mountain is a blight on the Vietmanese tourism landscape, and if local and national tourism authorities were interested in returned travel to the region and Viet Nam they should intervene with what goes on.

It was a lovely few hours walking round and seeing the caves and pagadas, we didn't see them all as I suspect that would have taken a number of hours and it was too hot. There is a lot of stairs and I would advise shoes with a grip as the floor is not and slippery in places. The heaven vantage point involved a lot more steep stairs and then climbing up over large marble boulder type things of which did not feel at all safe, apparently it was worth it for the view but I safely waited just below which was as comfortable as I felt climbing too.
