According to geologists, Breast Mountain is made of Dolomite which was weather beaten and rolled by wind and water, making the mountain slope down evenly. Dolomite stone is weather beaten by wind and water and broken up by itself into sand and grit which are easily drifted by water and its weight from the peak to base in rainy season. Especially, it takes a special part in forming the peaks of the Breast Mountains in particular and other mountais in general. There are also many rock fissures with diverse direction which make the stone destruction easiers.

Breast Mountains belong to Quaternary dated back 1.6 to 2 million years. Apart from the Breast Mountain, there are some older cone hills which are formed similarly such as there hills in Tam Son town as a clear example.

Breast Mountain landscape was designated a National Landscape Monument on 16th November
