What you'll do
We will meet at the base of Son Tra ( Monkey Mountain ) for a quick overview of trip safety. We will then start our journey up into the jungle to look for monkeys. We will travel on lesser known trails to look for two specific types of monkeys found in the area. The Red Shanked Douc and Rhesus Macaque. the Red Shanked Douc is very rare and colorful and there are less than 2000 of them left on the planet. We will be searching for and photographing monkeys in their natural habitat. The back trails we will take offer breathtaking views of the mountains and sea. We will stop at Ban Co peak which is on of the highest elevation spots on the trails to take some pictures of the city and beaches below. The view is really amazing. If nature doesn't cooperate and we do not get to see monkeys the ride alone is beautiful and exciting.
As an American and professional photographer living here in Vietnam I love to photograph and document the rare monkeys in Da Nang. Over the past few years I have knowledge of where they like to hang out and the best spots to view and photograph them. Hosting Experiences on Airbnb has been so much fun. I love to share my local experience with visitors!
I'll bring fresh cold fruit to snack on.
We always bring frozen water bottles so there is iced cold water to drink

Where you'll be
Son Tra Peninsula is home to rare endangered Red Shanked Douc Monkeys. These monkeys are in the wild. Back road trails seldom travelled are the best spots to try to photograph these elusive monkeys. The whole mountain range offers spectacular views. Even just the ride is worth it.
