Full description
Depart Hoi An and journey towards the limestone complex of the Marble Mountains in beautiful Da Nang. Upon arrival, see the 156 stone steps that are carved into the side of Thuy Son, the only Marble Mountain accessible to visitors.

Ascend to the top of the mountain and marvel at the Buddhist pagoda temples and hidden Buddhist and Hindu grottoes along the way. Get a closer look at the reliefs that depict religious scenes carved out of the marble, and soak up the panoramic views.

Head back down the mountain to visit the artisans village where skilled sculptors create many amazing products out of the marble. Continue to Linh Ung Pagoda, built under the reign of King Minh Mang in the 19th-century Nguyen Dynasty. Learn about the legend of the Buddhist statue said to have drifted downstream to the area to anchor at a sandy embankment.
