    Nghê Rock on Sơn Trà Peninsula is the first place to Đà Nẵng to receive the sun's light each day.

    The rock got its name because it is shaped like a Nghê creature, a mythological lion in Vietnamese culture.

    A trip to Nghê Rock, the first place in Đà Nẵng to receive the rays of the morning sun, is an exciting experience for any visitor to the coastal city, dubbed the most liveable in Việt Nam.

    Hidden among the rough rocks is a natural swimming pool with crystal-clear water, perfect for a dip while contemplating the stunning structures carved by nature.

    Together with Mỏ Diêu and Cổ Ngựa Mountains, Nghê Rock used to be a mountain forming present-day Sơn Trà Peninsula, famous for its amazing views of the sea.

    According to locals, the name of the rock comes from its shape, which looks like a Nghê (a mythological lion in Vietnamese culture) with its head towards the rock mountain and its body towards the sea.

    To reach the untouched and mysterious Nghê Rock, travellers can follow Nguyễn Tất Thành Street in Đà Nẵng and then cross Thuận PhướcBridge to reach Sơn Trà Peninsula. It is located around 10km from the city so it is easiest to get there by motorbike.

    In order to catch the first rays of sun on Nghê Rock, travellers can erect camps and spend the night on the vast open land nearby. It's the perfect chance to enjoy a delicious barbecue, chat by the fire and enjoy the starry night sky while hearing the waves crash against the rocks.

    Those who do not fancy camping by the sea had better travel to the rock early in the morning when it is still misty too dark to see the surrounding landscapes clearly.

    As the sun gradually rises, the shape of the mighty rock lion starts to getclearer above the transparent and peaceful water, creating an impressive view.

    After a long sleep, the night dew disappears and the forest, sea and mountains surrounding Nghê Rock seem to be unveiled from their thin misty curtain to welcome a glorious new day. The water no longer looks deep and mysterious, but becomes suddenly sparkling under the dancing sunlight.

    Anyone who has the chance to witness such a stunning view of nature will surely never forget it.
