Lang Bian is located around 1 hour drive from Dalat. 1950m above sea level. You can walk the last 500m, but the actual distance is 6km. We took the jeep for around 17 USD, they drive you up to the top. There is a small restaurant, some little booth for cloth ans souvenirs. A little bit annoying is that you... More

We followed Mike R's advice about renting bicycles in Đà Lạt and found ourselves on crappy mountain bikes. My friend's bike, when changing gear, lost it all and the chain got out. Mine, when pushing on the left pedal, felt like I was going through without applying pressure. And it also took its time to change gear. We rode the... More

There are 2 summits, one at 1800 (west) and one at 2100 meters (east)! Most of the people will take the jeep up to the 1800m summit or to the trail that leads to the 2100m summit. Nevertheless, it is possible to do everything by foot. My guess is that the best thing to do is to follow the roads... More

It's a short ~2hours hike up to the peak - very manageable! At the peak, you can see the entire Da Lat city... Beautiful and mesmerizing view! Find this place much better than Ho Chi Min City which was really boring in terms of scenery or attractions. This leg of the trip especially with this short hike is one of... More

This is not a national park, but a privately-run concession. Thus, it's not in the company's interest to indicate the first hiking path, the use of which is included in the initial entrance fee. After avoiding jeeps careening up and down the main road for 4 km, you'll come to the path to the peak. The "ranger station" is nothing... More

Me and a friend rented a motorbike and it was easy to find. However when we got to the gates there was an unexpected entrance fee, then a parking fee, then a fee for a jeep ride to the top which we werent expecting.. it wasnt that expensive, but it just made you feel like you were getting scammed. That... More

Everyone traveling to DaLat should really visit Lang Bian. This mountain is sort of a symbol for DaLat. We rented a jeep to go up the mountain, as I think walking up would have been very tiring. It is a fairly steep mountain. The views from the top were magnificent and they had some old Vietnamese War relics at the... More

I can see all the city... Food and drink are not special at all. Only one restaurant here. I hope more service here...
