How much time you spend on this beautiful 693 metre high mountain depends on how much you want to do. If you're just here for the Lady Buddha statue then this ought to be a quick trip. But there's a lot more to see. For starters, the peninsula on which the mountain rises has three beaches nestled at its base. The sweeping roads of the mountain are very popular with bikers (the road is quite steep so vehicles need to be powerful). The Vietnamese military has a helipad nearby which is a great lookout point. Hiking trails criss-cross the mountain's protected forests; wildlife include rhesus macaques, long-tailed macaques, pygmy slow loris, and red-shanked douc langurs. From the beaches to the summit takes more than 4 hours of hiking.
