HOI AN MOTORCYCLE TOUR TO SON TRA AND MARBLE MOUNTAINS
This motorbike tour can be started from Hoi An or Danang to visit highlights of Danang. Jutting out into the sea, the Son Tra Peninsula is crowned by the Son Tra Mountain that the American soldiers during the War called Monkey Mountain. The 13.5km-long mountain to the northeast of Da Nang acts as a barrier protecting the city from strong winds and storms coming in from the sea. The Marble Mountains, located at Hoa Hai Ward, Ngu Hanh Son District, are a major tourist attraction in Da Nang and are alongside the Da Nang-Hoi An roads, 8 km to the southeast of the central area of Da Nang. They consist of 5 mountains with many mysterious caves, Buddha statues and beautiful pagodas. Each mountain is named after the natural element it is said to represent: Thuy Son (Water), Moc Son (Wood), Hoa Son (Fire), Kim Son (Metal or Gold) and Tho Son (Earth).

Start our motorbike tour by leaving Hoi An, on our way out of town, we visit a Cham temple and a former US war base. We then follow small country laneways around Danang before we head up the steep slopes of the Son Tra peninsula, otherwise known as Monkey Mountain. We ride the narrow road that snakes around the mountain, offering grand views of the sea, Da Nang Beach, the Hai Van Pass and the Truong Son range. We enjoy a picnic lunch with scenic views at the highest point, 696m. Looping around the other side of the mountain, we visit a pagoda with the country’s biggest Buddha statue, and see colourful fishing boats being repaired along the coast. Before our return, we enter the sacred Marble Mountains (Ngu Hanh Son), where we can explore the caves or take an optional abseil into the temple at Hell’s Cave.
Optional Abseiling at Marble Mountain:
We walk up Marble Mountain into the rappelling area, which takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
The first rappel is a short walk from the practice area and enjoys a fantastic view of the ocean. This 22 meter line has great exposure, fantastic scenery and makes you feel like you are much higher than you actually are. Then we do our final rappel; a monster 50 meter drop into a gaping hole so deep and dark that you can’t see the bottom. This fantastic cave rappel drops right out of the jungle down into a temple chamber. Get ready for a full on Tomb Raider experience!
