A wonder of Quang Ngai - Thach Ky dieu tau

Published:  06:54 Tuesday - November 15, 2016 Coming to the spot, tourists can admire the magnificent landscapes and watch daily activities of local people like children playing on waves and fishing coracles bubbling on the water surface.

This is a gorgeous spot located to South of Sa Ky seaport in An Vinh Hamlet, Tinh Ky Commune in Son Tinh District.

The picturesque site used to be among the top 12 landscapes of Quang Ngai extolled by artists in the past but now is in the top two and much loved by locals. 

Nearby the cliff there are two huge human footsteps created from various stones and an open-air stone cave. When a wave flows into the caves, water will spray out from a hole beneath the cave that looks like a wine furnace. 

According to legend, a giant man carried stones to lock the seaport. But unfortunately, he dropped the last load of stones so it helped create two mountains and his footsteps were left behind. 

In particular, tourists will find it interesting to see a black lava block consisting of many diverse stones shapes spreading out to the sea. 

According to scientists, thanks to the identity of these stones they can surmise that there was a volcano dated tens of thousands year ago at this location.  

As it has cliffs and holes, there are many seafood specialities, among them some tasty fish such as hong, doi, ke and hanh, huynh de crab, sea eel, sea snake and sea urchin.

Coming to the spot, visitors can admire the magnificent landscapes and watch daily and activities of local people like children playing in the waves and fishing coracles bubbing on the water surface.
