Trip Description & Day-by-day Itinerary
Dalat Walking Tour is a half day tour we arrange in Dalat. This pleasant 2 hour walk takes you out to the pine forested area just north of Dalat and wanders down on peaceful trails to the lake below. The trail goes over a couple of moderate hills before dropping down gradually. Dankia Lake greets you at the end of the trail and a beautiful park with flower gardens presents an opportunity to sit back and enjoy the great outdoors.
This trip starts with a short vehicle transfer from either our office or your hotel to the trail head (about 20 minutes). The drive on the way out of town takes you past beautiful flower farms and presents some impressive vistas of Langbian Mountain in the distance.
The trail starts out on a dirt road and turns off onto a small trail after just a couple of hundred meters.
We head up a hill and then down into the valley on the other side. The trail is fringed with pine trees the entire way. Water buffaloes can be seen wallowing in mud puddles dug out by the local farmers.
The trail slowly descends down to the lake from this point and the southern shores of the lake can be made out from a key vantage point on the way.
As we get close to the end of the trail, horses can be seen grazing in the wide open flat area that is left during the dry season, when the lake has receded. When we reach the end of the trail, a park dedicated to flowers greets us and presents the opportunity for more pleasant walking. It’s a great place to wander around and find a pleasant shady area to enjoy a snack. Trip ends.
