( 1 Day Hike )
This one day adventure starts to the Northwest of Dalat City. We drive 30 minutes along picturesque scenic roads to the LangBian Mountain Trailhead, where we start our journey. The first section of trail is through pine forest.
We continue to walk through forest paths until we see a change in foliage to broad-leaf jungle. Here you can take a short rest to gain strength for the steep uphill climb to the summit of LangBian.
At the summit, you can enjoy a fruit break and then follow a ridgeline to the second highest peak of Langbian. There you will be treated to a picnic lunch of fresh veggies and fruits, baguettes with an assortment of toppings and a French-style pastry to satisfy your sweet tooth. Dalat is known as the vegetable garden of Vietnam and lunch offers you a chance to try some of Dalat’s tasty produce.
After lunch and a rest on the mountain-top, we move to the third highest peak. The cement foundations on this peak are remnants of a former American Radar Base, complete with a helicopter pad.
After descending the mountain, it is possible to visit the Lat Ethnic Minority village for a look at their hand-made weavings and their cultural heritage.
