Legend has it that from a distance, the mountain resembles a buffalo with two stone horns. In bygone days, locals believed that this mountain, resembling a vast buffalo, shielded them from detrimental winds and storms coming from the western coast.
The mountain beckons travellers who have a zest for exploration and are in good health. It stands as one of five mountains offering panoramic vistas of Nha Trang City.
