It could be 5 stars if not for the sheer amount of trash littered all over the trails. I enjoyed the hike up when we are near to the summit. The amount of trash is not only limited to the campsites, but we saw so...More

This place is quite amazing but very very dirty. I don't know if it's dirty because Vietnamese are very dirty throwing away cans, papers and food or because the staff doesn't clean. The view from the top of the mountain is incredible.

This is one of my top 5 pagoda in Vietnam and is worth a visit. If you can travel with a Vietnamese person do it they can give you the context to the beauty.
