Reward yourself by going on trekking and kayaking in Dalat.

A trip to the Highlands wouldn't be complete without exploring the beautiful jungles and lakes in the region. Nothing beats the stunning views of mountains and forests from the serenity of Tuyen Lam Lake. Head deep into the jungle on foot and by boat through small rivers and tributaries that feed into the lake. 

The trailhead starts just south of Dalat and a short 15 minute vehicle transfer. About 11km in hiking, start from Bao Dai Fall, you’ll walk through a small village and evergreen pine forest to thick broadleaf jungle and head up to the top of Samson mountain, one of the most beautiful spots for photographers in Da Lat, where you can see the fantastic views of Da Lat’s town and the surrounding area, with stunning views of Langbiang mountain. We head up from 1,500 meters in elevation to the ridgeline which meanders between 1,650 and 1,700 meters. The going is steep to begin with and both sides of the trail are dotted with pine trees. 

On the top of Samson mountain with a height of 1700 meters you can enjoy panoramic city of Da Lat

This 8.5 km hike in Da Lat heads up along a jungle fringed ridgeline just south of town. This lonely trail charges up to its peak elevation early on and then gently rolls before heading down to the lake.The reward for the trek is the view of a wide of flora and fauna where you can see a hundred years old trees surrounded by vines or some wild roaming animals hiding somewhere in the wood.

After trekking, we will explore the far end of the lake and spend the remainder of the day exploring the many inlets and secret spots. The area is also known as the most popular spots in Vietnam for bird watching. We slowly make our way back to the boat launch from here, enjoying more great views of the lush pine forested and jungle areas that border the lake.
