The plan for hiking and kayaking tour

A trip to Dalat city wouldn't be complete without exploring the beautiful jungles and lakes in the region. It is clear that nothing can beat the stunning and breath-taking views of mountains and forests from the serenity of Tuyen Lam Lake. Therefore, we provide the hiking and kayaking tour to the upper part of the moutainous region in Dalat for tourists to explore this beauty side of this city. Tourists will head deep into the jungle on foot and by boat through small rivers and tributaries that feed into the lake.

The trailhead starts to the south of Dalat and takes a short 15 minute for vehicle transfering. Then, 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 and tourists are asked to get through the long forest. The reward for this steep uphill climb is a fantastic view of the town and surrounding area, with stunning views of Langbiang Mountain in the north.

In the next part of the trip, tourists need to pass through the long journey of about 8.5 km. This 8.5 km hike heads up along a jungle fringed ridgeline to the south of town. This lovely trail charges up to its peak elevation early on and then gently rolls before heading down to the lake where our kayaks are located. Tourists will have an opportunity to experience the most interesting sporty activities in the trip

We will have short break with a light and simple picnic lunch prepared by the tour guide. The lunch is fulfilled with many fruits and vegetable grown in the Dalat area.

After lunch, 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. Tourists should not miss the chance to take amazing photos here.

After that, 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. Tourists can enjoy using and controlling the boats themselves based on the instructions of the tour guides.

This fantastic hiking and kayaking tour is one that can be enjoyed by those of almost any fitness levels. A great day out for those who love to be on the water. Tourists will have a chance to swim in the lake if they want.
