It's a beautiful and tranquil place. Picturesque place that you definitely need to go to and walk the grounds. There is also a little lake located at the end.

Make sure you make use of the cable car when visiting this temple. The views during the 'ride' are awesome. At the monastery, you'll find peace and beautiful gardens. There are a few buildings with temples or shrines to see. If you have time, do the walk down the hill to see the waterfront and the boats on the lake.

A bit too touristy to get the real feel behind the place, but enjoyed the cable car, and was a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

This pagoda is incredibly serene, despite the volume of tourists. It sits high on a mountain with a sense of peace around. Priests and nuns still live there and they grow the most beautiful array of flowers.

1st you must take the cable car to the Pagoda. It is not mandatory but if you arrive by taxi or bus you will miss a spectacular ride and view of DaLat. The ride is just 40,000 D one way or 70,000 D return. Warning...if you take the cable car back you may have to walk to the central bus... More

A peaceful place to stroll around and enjoy the beauty of the place. Take the cable car ride round trip to enjoy more scenery. If not on a tour you will need a taxi. The concession area personnel are willing to call you a taxi when you return.

Really enjoyed the whole experience. Great tram (we had good weather), serene atmosphere, beautiful views of the lake and of the gardens full of flowers. I would definitely recommend this stop.

Go by cable car both ways, 70,000 dong, beautiful gardens and pagoda. Do walk down to the lake, very peaceful. Like the place to sit and have a snack under the lovely pine forest.

Arrived by cable car on a tour which set the mood of calm and at-one with nature. Eventhough there were plenty of people they spread out and the atmosphere took over. Walk down to the lake.
