Exploring Due Son

TTH.VN - Due Son, also known as Mount Le, Mount Re or Mount Ke, has a slightly pointed shape and beautiful form. The Eastern side of the mountain rests on Ta Trach Lake. The mountain is like a guardian god, standing at the upstream source of the Huong River, protecting the land where the Temple of Literature and the Temple of Martial Arts Saint are located.

Mount Due, along with Mount Ngu Binh and Mount Kim Phung (Thuong Son) are considered the master mountains that gather energy of the spiritual veins of Hue. In the 17th year of Emperor Minh Mang's reign, the Nguyen Dynasty had a statue of Mount Due carved onto Tuyen Dinh (one of Cuu Dinh, or the Nine Dynastic Urns).

Surrounding the front and the back of Mount Due are Mount Chuoi, Mount Gay and Mount Kim Phung. This is the Western rear area of the Duong Hoa war zone. On the cliffs at the top of the mountain, traces of artillery shell holes still remain on the faces of large cliffs.

Thua Thien Hue Weekly would like to invite readers to visit Due Son through the photos of the photographer Ngoc Luc Bao. This is an ideal place to enjoy the panoramic view of Hue and to hunt clouds. From the top of the mountain, you can sweep over the vast land, with Ta Trach Lake, Binh Dien Lake, the Ta Trach source, Huu Trach source, and the Tuan junction, which is the confluence of the Huong River.
