Introduction to Ba Na Hills – “The Road to Heaven’s Scenery.”
Located at an altitude of 1,489m, Ba Na Hills is currently the most popular tourist destination in Da Nang, with a record of owning the longest single-wire cable car in the world. Ba Na Hills has a cool climate all year round, with four seasons in a day that allows tourists to experience all four seasons within the same day. This is also why Ba Na Hills is often referred to as the second Dalat. However, that only refers to the weather, while Ba Na Hills still holds many mysteries that everyone wants to explore at least once.
As soon as you step onto the top of Ba Na Hills, it’s hard to resist the allure of a majestic and grandiose “castle” with a European atmosphere. Standing on the top of Ba Na, you can embrace the majestic natural scenery of the mountainous forest, the misty clouds passing by as if you could touch them. A modern city of Da Nang appears surreal in the mist, as if standing on a ninth-floor cloud, promising to be an unforgettable moment.
What time does Ba Na Hills open and when is the best time to depart from Da Nang?
What time does Ba Na Hills open?
According to Ba Na Hills’ decision, the schedule for cable car operation, along with the mountain climbing train service and the Fantasy Park amusement park, will be as follows:
- The cable car operates from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily.
- The mountain climbing train operates from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
- Fantasy Park amusement park opens at 8:30 am and closes at 5:00 pm.
So, you can arrive at Ba Na Hills as early as 7:30 am to start moving up the cable car. However, it is not necessary to come here early because except for holidays, festivals, or weekends, Bà Nà Hills is not really crowded. Moreover, the cable car system on Bà Nà is often reinforced on busy days, so you only need to wait for a few minutes, not too long. From here, it will take about 30-45 minutes to get to the top of Ba Na Hills.
When should you leave from Da Nang to go to Ba Na Hills?
As mentioned above, you already know what time Ba Na Hills opens. The cable car operates from 8:00 am, but the area of Ba Na Hills is quite large, so you have to calculate the time for parking, buying tickets, and it takes about 20 minutes to walk to the cable car station.
Ba Na Hills still opens until 5:00 pm, but almost everyone takes advantage of going in the morning to have enough time to visit everywhere. I also recommend that you go a little early because sometimes if you arrive at Ba Na Hills around 11:00 am, you may not have enough time to play because the weather here is quite humid and it gets dark quite early. Moreover, around 1:00 pm, it starts to get foggy, and if you arrive here too late, you will encounter rain, leading to the disruption of the fun trip.
In summary, you should leave from Da Nang as early as possible, both to take advantage of sightseeing and to avoid getting caught in the rain in the afternoon.
Choosing a private car with a driver in Da Nang can help you move around quickly at any time of the day.

Are you an adult or a child? To be able to limit the troubles of buying tickets and traveling by car, most adults prefer to go on a tour which is more convenient and ensures better health. On the other hand, if you are still young and want to ride a motorbike to enjoy the scenery and have more freedom in terms of time, then you should go on your own.
Is taking the cable car to Ba Na Hills really safe?
The cable car has achieved four international records, so it is extremely safe. It takes about 30 minutes sitting in the cabin to reach the top of Ba Na Hills and experience a completely different space from the city. The cabin will move from station to station, taking visitors slowly up to enjoy the entire space of Mount Chua, where they can admire the harmonious blending of clouds, mountains, forests, and waterfalls that appear like white threads.
Taking the cable car is a fairly new experience that can bring you moments of excitement but can also be a “nightmare” for those who are prone to motion sickness. Therefore, if you are prone to motion sickness, remember to take medication beforehand. If it is mild, it is not necessary. In addition, to avoid motion sickness, you can chat with others, avoid holding your phone, or look back, which can be quite tiring.
Should you eat at Ba Na Hills or not?
Currently, Ba Na Hills has a regulation prohibiting visitors from bringing their own food. Instead, you will have more options for dining as follows:
- Purchase a buffet ticket at Ba Na Hills to enjoy up to 100 selected dishes at restaurants such as Morin, Lanvander, Beer Buffet, etc. The ticket price has been adjusted from 225k to 255k for Vietnamese buffet, and the Korean and Russian buffet tickets have also increased by 30k, applied to all restaurants at Ba Na Hills.
- Buy food at fast food shops: Compared to the buffet option, this suggestion is also quite interesting. You can randomly enjoy the food you crave the most.
