Marble Mountains

Attraction

Marble Mountains, Da Nang

These five marble and limestone hills are a place of significance for local people. Each 'mountain' is named after one of the five elements (metal, water, wood, fire and earth) and has its own caves and tunnels, some of which were Buddhist sanctuaries and hideouts for the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War. In the quarries at their base you'll find statues of animals, folk tales and Buddhist figures carved from the rock.
