Learn about Ngu Binh Mountain

Ngu Binh Mountain is one of the symbols of the dreamy Hue. Visitors to this place cannot forget the immense green pine forest, the ancient temple on the top of the mountain and the drifting river. The special thing about Ngu Binh Mountain in Hue is that the mountain is only 105m high but has a trapezoidal shape leading to the top. Right next to the mountain is the land of Ta Phu Son and Huu Bat Son, which is likened to a phoenix surrounding the foot of the mountain.

Because of that beauty, it is said that this is a sacred mountain with feng shui meaning for the whole Hue citadel. Coming here, you can not only admire the wonderful nature, breathe in the fresh air, but also make your soul settle down and reflect in the true nature of Hue people.

The most beautiful travel experience on Ngu Binh mountain is from May to September. This is when the weather in Hue is very cool and pleasant. The beautiful scenery around Ngu mountain at this time is the most loving and romantic. You should not travel to Hue in September to April next year. Because this is the time when the weather in Hue is rainy and stormy, it is very difficult for sightseeing.

Discover the history of the mountain

Ngu Binh Mountain is also known as Binh Son or Bang Son. This name started from the time when Lord Ngai (Nguyen Phuc Thai) traveled to Xuan village in Hue and built a residence here. This mountain became the focal point of the construction of Hue citadel under the Nguyen dynasty.

During the reign of King Quang Trung, this mountain was a sacred witness of the ceremony to sacrifice to heaven and earth to enthrone the king. The Nguyen kings also ordered to plant pine trees from the foot of the mountain to the top to create a landscape to enjoy. The steps to the top of the mountain are also said to have been ordered by the king to admire the natural scenery. This is also a great place for actors and actresses to date and experience on the days of the Qingming New Year and the Lunar New Year.

Today, Ngu Binh Mountain becomes the soul of the beloved Hue land.
