Tuyen Lam Lake


Dalat is a quiet town in the south central highlands of Vietnam, about 250 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City, and is set in a landscape dotted with lakes and blanketed with pine forested hills. It was first established as a hill station by the French, and many of the fabulous villas they built are still here. The cool climate, clean air and escape from the heat and congestion of Saigon that initially brought the French, still brings locals from Saigon looking for a cool mountain retreat.

The city is really only about 100 years old. At an altitude of between 1,500 and 2,000 meters, the cool air and hilly terrain provide the perfect setting for the adventure sports we love to do. Dalat provides an abundance of terrain to explore and wealth of opportunities to get off the beaten path. We offer mountain biking, trekking, canyoning, kayaking, rappelling and rock climbing trips to everyone from the inexperienced beginner, to the experienced pro looking for a challenge. We also have extended adventure itineraries for those looking to head further into the central highlands, down to the national park in the south, or down to the coast. Come check us out in Dalat!

Jungle Fever –2 days, 1 night

Trek the first day down from Dalat to Tuyen Lam lake. The trail is moderate on the first day and goes over Pinhatt Mountain through pine forest and ends at a campsite on the shore of the lake. The second day puts you in the jungle for the whole day as you trek the west side of the lake. This moderate trek involves about 4-5 hours of hiking each day.

Day 1:Trekking

Pick up at your hotel in Dalat. The first section of trail is through minority farms and pine forest. We continue to walk through forest paths until we meet the base of Pinhatt. Here you can take a short rest to gain strength for the steep uphill climb (45 minutes) to the summit of Pinhatt.

After lunch we descend and you will notice a very dramatic difference in the flora and fauna. The valley you enter is no longer pine forest, but the jungle that Vietnam is so famous for. You will emerge on the other side, at a campsite where you can relax, take a swim or head out into the lake on one of our kayaks and watch the sun go down.

Day 2:

Start your walk through pine forest near the lake. Soon there is a dramatic change in scenery from pine to thick jungle. Walk the rolling hills among the vines, broad-leaf trees, and enjoy the cool jungle breeze. If you’re lucky, you may see a wild orchid in bloom or a troop of wild gibbons. Upon exiting the thick jungle section, you will walk between Elephant Mountain and another area peak. Enjoy seeing the small minority farms that dot the valley floor. After lunch and a rest you continue walking through the valley until you come to a ridgeline, which you follow to the chicken village.
