Explore Vietnam's Ta Ku Mountain on a day trip from Phan Thiet
Experience the cooler temperatures and religious relics of this famous mountain
Check out the views during a 10-minute cable car ride to the top
Admire the imposing heft of the mountain's 'Reclining Buddha'
Enjoy an included lunch at a restaurant located on the mountain
Receive an early morning pickup from your hotel in Phan Tiet or Mui Ne. From there you’ll continue driving along the Vietnam coast, passing by a scenic lighthouse and numerous small villages while en route to the mountain.
Once you arrive at Ta Ku, climb aboard the mountain’s cable cars for a laid-back (and scenic) 10-minute ride to the top. As the cable car climbs ever higher, you’re likely to feel the change in air temperature and hear the calls of birds wafting up to your ears. When you disembark from the cable car, walk for 980 feet (300 meters) to the mountain’s Reclining Buddha. Admire this giant religious landmark, a statue which is 160-feet (49-meters) long and 36 feet (11 meters) high.
Continue the trip by stopping for lunch at a local restaurant situated on the mountain, during which your guide will share details about the Buddha statue’s origins. After lunch you’ll return back to the base of the mountain by cable car before continuing your trip back. On the way home, stop at factory that produces Vietnamese sauce, one of the country’s more famous cooking ingredients. You’ll be dropped off by late afternoon.

What a day that was! Tun our guide...

What a day that was! Tun our guide was great so knowledgeable and we did so much. Visited a dragon fruit plantation, went to see the oldest lighthouse and fishing boats. Cable car halfway up mountain, then lots of walking. If you have leg or feet problems , be aware of lots of uneven ground. It was worth it to get to the top to see the largest lying Buddha.
