Black Lady Mountain Saigon

Ho Chi Minh City Attractions

Black Lady Mountain Saigon, also known as Black Virgin Mountain, is an inactive volcano within Vietnam’s Tay Ninh Province, where adventurous travellers can enjoy a wide range of activities and sightseeing opportunities. Standing at 986 metres, this natural landscape spreads over an area of 24 km, housing quaint temples and caves that have been utilised by Buddhist monks for centuries.

As with most locales in southern Vietnam, Black Lady Mountain Saigon has seen many wars such as World War II and the Vietnam War as it offers great vantage point for military forces. However, the mountain was successfully defended thanks to the hundreds of underground tunnels built by the Viet Cong. Today, the mountain is a popular attraction for those looking to escape the bustling Ho Chi Minh City. Most visitors opt for the Nui Ba Dien gondola lift to reach the top of the mountain, which boasts spectacular views of the verdant summit and its surrounding area.

Experienced hikers can also find several trail paths leading up to famous temples such as Linh Son Thien Thach. It takes about an hour to reach Black Lady Mountain on foot while a roundtrip ride on the gondola is priced at VND 150,000.

Located 100 kilometres north of Ho Chi Minh City, many tour companies offer daytrips to Black Lady Mountain Saigon, often combined with a stop at the Cu Chi Tunnels or Cao Dai Temple. You can also travel by motorcycle or bus, which take about two hours from Ho Chi Minh City.
