Da Dung Mountain, which is also known as Chau Nham Son Mountain or Bach Mountain (White Mountain), is a huge outcrop of limestone in the the flat plains of southern Vietnam. As a result of the warm and humid climate, the mountain of soluble rock is riddled with caves, actually the mountain itself is the result of the solution of a once much bigger outcrop of limestone. It is one of numerate karst towers in the area, about 100m high and contains 14 different caves.
