Marble Mountains‬‬

This majestic cluster of five marble and limestone hills on the southern outskirts of the city is impressive enough in its own right, but it’s what they contain that is truly spectacular. These mountains are home to Buddhist sanctuaries that draw pilgrims from all over the world, and which were used by Vietnamese revolutionaries as bases and hiding spots. The main mountain, Thuy Son, is the only one accessible to visitors and boasts several Buddhist and Hindu grottoes. Come early to beat the crowds.
