Ba Den Mountain

Location: Ba Den Mountain is located 11km Northeast of Tay Ninh Town and 106km from Ho Chi Minh City.
Characteristics: It is a famous complex of cultural, historical and beautiful sites covering an area of more than 24km2.

The complex includes three mountains: Heo, Phung and Ba Den, of which the 986m-high Ba Den is the highest peak in the South.
 

Ba Den Mountain is also called Black Lady Mountain. According to legends, beautiful Ly Thi Thien Huong, Black Lady, was forced to marry the son of a rich mandarin while she fell in love with a poor man who was fighting the aggressors. Rather than marrying a man she did not love, she threw herself from the mountain.
 

◊ Highest peak in the South

If you go on foot, it takes you over one hour to arrive at the destination. Cable cars take you 20 minutes to cover a distance of 1,200m. The sliding system includes two lines going upward and downward, 1,190m and 1,700m in length respectively. It is impressive to take the downward line as it will take you through lots of hair-raising bends and corners.
 


 

Cultural tourism site

Several shrines and pagodas were built in the mountain as well as in the caves. The most noteworthy are Ba Den (or Linh Son Tien Thach, or Upper) Pagoda rebuilt in 1997, and Ba Temple where preserves bronze statue of Ba Den. In addition, one should not forget Ha (Lower), Trung (Middle), and Hang pagodas and various caves of Kim Quang, Kim Son, Thanh Long, Dai Dong and Thien Thai. Ba and Hang Pagodas attract many pilgrims during the New Lunar Year and Vu Lan Festivals.
 

Ba Den Mountain is also the location of three preservation parks that serve as outdoor museums, which display relics and photographs depicting the life and activities of the Vietnamese Liberation Forces during the American War (1954-1975).


Ba Den Mountain is a holy place of the local people and an interesting cultural and eco-tourism site for domestic and international visitors.
