PHAN THIET TA CU MOUNTAIN TOUR | 49 METERS BUDDHA

Views: 11452

Ta cu mountain is one of the highest mountains in Binh Thuan Province - 649 meters From the top of the mountain, there is a spectacular view of the dragon fruit farms and rice paddies below. In the 1870s and 1880s, a Buddhist month named Tran Huu Duc led a group of Buddhist faithful in the construction of the Linh Son Truong Tho Pagoda. After his death in 1887, a group of his followers built the lower Long Doan Pagoda. Then in 1958, a man named Truong Dinh Tri began construction of the 49 meter-long, seven meter-high reclining Buddha, as well as three additional smaller Buddha statues. There is a cave near the statues which has been named the Forefathers Cave. At the bottom of the cave is a small stream, which disappears into the cave floor. It is inside this cave that Tran Huu Duc spent much of his life time in meditation.

    We loved this day trip

    the big Buddha is powerful to see! Massive and bright white. It is quite a lot of stairs to climb though, which could be tough for an elderly or disable person. The view is fantastic from the top of the mountain! You should definitely visit!

    This is a great choice in Mui Ne.

     You can get close to nature, enjoy some meditation time under the giant reclining Buddha, and enjoy the nice scenery on the cable car. Good for young kids also as I brought my 2 year old, and its a good exercise and experience for her! The driver was friendly and the tour guide was nice and can answer all my questions. Lovey trip!

    Everything was great

    You will get at the top of the mountain by a cable car which is very comfortable. The heat in Vietnam means you will sweat with each step you take so the cable car is huge help. :) The Buddha statue is overwhelming - we were amazed :)

    5 star for Johnny Tours

    Great views, lovely park well maintained, the Buddha is breathtaking. You will get on a cable car and enjoy the view and the ride. Quite a few steps but well worth it. Our guide Sandy was very helpful

    would do it again

    From my hotel it takes almost one hour to reach the place but it is worth to go. The driver came in time with tour guide. A nice area, local restaurants with great food, a modern cable car brings you up where "some" more steps awaiting you until you reach the lying Buddha. We enjoyed this half-day trip a lot.

    Beautiful place

    An absolute must-see attraction if you're nearby. The walk is not too much, the view is amazing and the experience itself was more than stunning. Beautiful area.
