I have a table 'orders' having columns
id int, month_date date, orders int

id month_date orders
1 2018-02-03 250
2 2018-01-03 150
3 2018-10-08 150
4 2018-11-08 420
5 2018-04-03 578
6 2018-05-04 489
7 2018-08-07 420

I have to display the top 5 orders in descending order and if the orders are same then list the dates in descending order.

What I have tried:

select mont_date, no_of_orders
from orders
order by no_of_orders desc
limit 5;

But I don't know how to display the dates in descending order when the orders in top 5 are same. Please someone help me.
