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.

    Must see

    We visited Ta cu on a Friday around noon. The place was very quiet and we really enjoyed the trip. This was one of the most beautiful places we visited in Southern Vietnam. Don't miss the "old temple" which you find when you turn right from the path to the sleeping buddha. Go with Johnny tours

    worth the money

    A huge statue on the top of mountain, you're gonna have many chances to see nature, the slings. I went up with the cable car but next time, i'll try a trekking to the top instead of the slings. The price for the tour was great

    Nice ride on the cable car

    Great place. Fantastic cable car ride and beautiful scenery. The cable car ride is worth it by itself.

    Absolutely worth a visit.

    Beautiful view from the mountain top. Sweaty climbing up to see the big lying Buddha, so I recommend goog shoes. Water and soft drinks can be bought on the way up. Not suitable for very small kids in trollies, as there's steep slopes, a lot of steps and narrow paths. Absolutely worth a visit.

    Awesome trip. Driver and guide picked us up on time. Guide was able to speak fluently and gave great information all throughout the trip. Driver and guide were super friendly and helpful, didn't had problems with switching things up to better suit our needs. Trip itself is awesome and an absolute recommendation to do when around the area!

    Fascinating experience!!!

    Cabin up to the mountain was nice, but waaaaaarm inside. Fascinating to see the ENORMOUS Budda, up there in the hills. 15 minutes of warm, steep stairwalking 2 get there. Also, really nice parks, buildings, lakes in the area. Overall a nice trip, to break up the beach life😊
