Son Tra Peninsula

Thọ Quang, Sơn Trà, Da Nang, Vietnam

Son Tra Peninsula is the name of a mushroom shaped peninsula in Son Tra district which is 10 kilometers from the city center of Danang to the northeast. Coming to Son Tra, visitors have chance to travel like “up to jungles, down to sea” and experience activities such as discovering Son Tra old jungle; swimming at My Khe beach; visiting Bai But, Linh Ung pagoda; joining fishermen’s work; scuba diving and seeing coral; visiting Tien Sa lighthouse and taking a panoramic view of the city from the top of Son Tra mountain; getting to Mui Nghe – where Da Nang sunrise is first caught…

American soldiers stationed near Son Tra Mountain during the Vietnam War gave it the nickname Monkey Mountain after the troops of monkeys that dwell in the jungle-covered cliffs. The peak towers above the Son Tra Peninsula near the city of Da Nang. During the war, the mountain served as a military base used for radar and communications, and some of the radar domes are still visible.
A rather steep road leads to the summit of Son Tra Mountain, some 2,790 feet (850 meters) above sea level. On a clear day, the view from the peak is spectacular. Son Tra Mountain is also home to one of Da Nang’s most famous — and highly visible — landmarks, the 220-foot (67-meter) Lady Buddha statue, housed on the grounds of Linh Ung Pagoda.
