Nice scenery!!!

The cable car is cheap and convenient! A great view of the mountain! There is a temple near the station and a beautiful lake behind. Good to visit!

A beautiful temple with pine trees surrounding it. Away from town peaceful environment good for sanity, a bit crowded though. Good place for meditation.

I went there with my family. The cable car ride is nice and provides good views of the city and surrounding areas. You can take two way ride as well as one way ride. I'd recommend to take the one way ride to save money and ask your tour operator to drop you at the first point and pick you... More

The monastery is quite wonderful to visit with great flower gardens and temples. The cable car ride to and from offered amazing views and was worth the return ticket price. This was our first sight seeing activity in Dalat and was a great way to get a birds eye view of the city.

The views from the cable car ride are very nice. The gardens at the end of the cable car ride are so beautiful. My wife and I spent more than hour taking photos together, amongst all of the beautiful flowers. Very relaxing and pleasant experience.

The cable car ride downhill took us to the monastery. I think we visited the Pagoda during the peak season. There were lots of tourists and the locals too. The garden is nice but we could not get a perfect shot of the scenery within the property as it was over crowded with visitors.

This is a lovely peaceful place but is very quickly spoiled by hundreds of local tourists running around like its a play park. I found this most disrespectful to the monks that live and lovingly look after this place. Cable car ride is nice and you get a good view over the surrounding valleys. There is a car park at...

We took the Cable car across at 11:30, just before it closed for lunch (It reopened at 13:00). When we arrived at the other end, the Monastery was heaving. I imagined such a tranquil place of contemplation and relaxation - boy was I wrong! I have no problem with tourists, but unfortunately we were surrounded by some of the loudest... More

This place is wonderful to go and relax on top of a mountain. The Cable car next to it is probably the highlights, you will have an amazing view of the surroundings. If you are lucky, a monk might be able to take you inside the close gate area so you can have a look. The view of the lake... More
