The Marble Mountains, also called Ngu Hanh Son or Mountains of the Five Element, consist of five peaks : Thuy Son (water) which is the highest, Moc Son (wood), Kim Son (metal) , Tho Son (soil) and Hoa Son (fire). They are located 12 km west of Da Nang.

Thuy Son has developed into a popular tourist resort because of its alluring beauty. Stone steps carved into the mountain lead to Tam Thai Pagoda and Huyen Khong Cave.
