A great break from the party scene that seems to dominate backpacker life here in Dalat. A beautiful view of the town and the forests surrounding and the monastery at the end was also beautiful. No other tourists were around when I went and it felt like a wonderful escape from the well worn path.

After a ride on a cable car over the tree tops you are in a most restful, peaceful place. The monastery buildings are quite new and extremely beautiful. I found the area to be so calming and I really enjoyed walking around the splendid gardens listening to the gentle sing-song of chimes. I was so fortunate to strike up a... More

Behind the main temple, the Truc Lam has place for visitors who want to try the monk life. Men and women separately. Living 2 days with a zen schedule will bring you totally escape from busy life and give the refreshment of your mind.

After visiting the nearby Truc Lam Zen Monastery and Pagoda we crossed the road to the modern cable car. The views across the valley and surrounding mountains and nearby lake of Ho Tuyen Lam were excellent. From the ride you could also see a large area of DaLat city and the extensive array of hot houses used for gowing flowers,... More

Inexpensive cable car. Takes about 15minutes to get to the top with amazing views of Lat both in the car and at the top. Definitely worth a visit. Last cable car from the top is at 4.30pm.

What a fun day! Grab a taxi to the cable car station (this will only cost a couple of dollars) and jump on the cable car, this should only cost 70,000 VND for a return ticket. The cars and the towers are Swiss/Austrian made and are newish, it's a fantastic ride and you get some amazing views. At the other... More
