This is an ancient place of pilgrimage and is very Vietnamese with relics and scenic walks. The summit has incredible views and is worth the hike. We did see some people taking a motorbike up and just walking down (which is much easier)

On the way up was nice, a bit disappointed after a long walk in the heat they didn't have a proper place to rest just too much with the souvenir sellers.

Nothing spectacular. Nothing at the top (some bracelet selling stalls, a crappy restaurant and a small shrine). Plenty of rubbish and a communication tower, if that's what you're in to. Go to Cam Mountain instead.
