Panoramic view of Dalat from the top of Samson Mountain
It takes a total of 12 kilometers of rock climbing to reach the paradise scenery. So be prepared and eat a nutritious breakfast full of energy to tackle this journey. On your way up the mountain, you can leave the city noise behind and travel through a quiet and small village. In Dalat, there are colorful flower fields, a garden of fresh vegetables, a productive coffee plantation, and a popular rose garden. After that, you’ll gradually ascend to Samson Mountain, which stands at 1700 meters above sea level. The panoramic view of Dalat city from the top of Samson Mountain appears like a miniature “Ha Long Bay” emerging right before your eyes.
Lost in the dreamlike scenery of Tuyen Lam Lake (the Lake of Paradise)
The journey passes across an old-growth forest with abundant trees and a chestnut forest. During lunch, you can appreciate the poetic landscape of Tuyen Lam Lake; you can bathe, drink a cup of coffee, float, or take a cruise to enjoy the scenery around the lake. The tour will also take you through a woodland of rows of ancient trees that have been around for hundreds of years. You will also be able to stroll through artichoke fields and vividly colored strawberry farms – two of Dalat’s most popular agricultural items.
Being peaceful with the space of Truc Lam Zen Monastery
