Visiting Marble Mountains

All of the mountains have cave entrances, numerous tunnels, and Buddhist sanctuaries. Also during the Vietnam War, it is said that the Viet Cong soldiers hid out and established hospitals inside the caves of the mountains… only a short distance away from the American Air Facility.

We decided not to use the elevator and started to hike up.

We walked around and stopped at some temples and loads of white Buddha statues. I looked at a few of the caves, some a little hazardous to go in too far.

We made our way to the highest point with some nice views.

Views from Marble Mountain

We eventually reached Huyen Khong cave. The cave was the largest, with light beams filtering through holes in the rock.

It contains several Buddhist and Confucian shrines, colorful Buddhist and Confucian statues.
