Hotels located in Ba Na Mountain

This mountain, about 45 kilometres west of Da Nang, is usually visited as a day trip, but you can also stay for the night. You won’t exactly be spoiled for accommodation options as there are only two hotels. Spending the night you absorb the incredible views away from the crowds and get more of a sense of the nature that surrounds you. It’s also a great option if you’re looking to escape the heat of My Khe Beach, Non Nuoc Beach since temperatures are often 10 degrees cooler than in Da Nang. May through July are the prime months for sunny weather and clear, panoramic views from the 1,478 meters peak. Once the rainy season starts in September the mountain is almost constantly shrouded in cloud, meaning that when you could be sunning on the sand down below, you’ll be shivering in the drizzle up here. In November and December the temperature plummets and there are frequent thunderstorms, so travel is not recommended. Note that if you’re staying on Ba Na mountain, you’ll need to pay more entrance fee at the base and you’ll want to avoid Weekends and National Holidays. Weeknight rates come with big discounts and it’s not unsual to have the whole of Ba Na to yourself when that last cable car heads back down to base at 21h15.

  • People looking for a sense of the mountain area
