Lang bian beautiful mountain, but try goin with guide off roud, it's more exciting and fun, and you can go to the top of the mountain, where you can see great view,
But don't forget you're shoes, because the way is always wet and slippery.

Enjoy.

We drove about 7km from our hotel to the foot of the mountain and paid an entrance fee of 15000vnd/adult. Checked out the jeep counter and realised that the it is available at either 240000vnd/6-pax jeep or 40000vnd/adult, though we, 2 adults and 2 kids(free), had to wait about 10min for the assistant at the counter to gather other 4 passengers to occupy a jeep.
While waiting, we let the girls sit on the pony, which cost 10000vnd/pax with a short ride up to the slope to the 'Lang Bian' sign.
The ride up the summit was steep and definitely worth the money to take the jeep instead of walking 3 hours! We had about 45min at the summit before the jeep returned to pick us up. The view at the summit was scenic and we were lucky that we had finished taking photos and sight-seeing before the rain started to pour.

Firstly, there is some confusion on here as to Lang Bian and Lang Vien (the area). Lang Bian refers to the highest peak, where there are no roads, no tourist cafes...just a steep slippery climb for a few hours, but so worth it! The place with cafes and all the rest of the tourist rubbish is the peak furthest to the left (if Lang Bian is on your right).

We took a local guide for the trek and it took 3 hours to hike from the car park up to the top and down into the lower point before heading up the next peak. It's another 40 minutes back to the car park.

We used Groovy Gecko tours, it cost $20 each for a private tour with experienced guide speaking excellent English. We got lunch, entrance, transfers/travel in a jeep, water and useful info all included. It was really great!

One word of warning, it is a very steep and sometimes slippy climb. Wear boots or at least trainers and be prepared to use hands and knees at points. We're 23 and 26 years old of good fitness, and it was some real work at times!

Don't be put off, just talk to a guide and they will be honest and tell you about the recent conditions. The view from to top is amazing, and so, so peaceful.

I did this on my last day in Dalat, and I was really happy I did. You can get there on your own by taking a direct public bus from the center of Dalat to the north--either your hotel or an easy rider can tell you where to catch the bus (12,000 dong). The bus takes about twenty minutes, and drops you off at the foot of the mountain. You can either walk up yourself or pay to take a jeep up (quite expensive, unless you have a big group).

I hiked up and down, which was a relaxing way to spend the afternoon. It takes about three hours in total. It's fairly steep in parts, and the high altitude can wear you out quickly, but the scenery is gorgeous.

We visited Lang Bian today. We only had one day in Dalat and didn't want to spend it on an organised tour so after visiting a few other sites in the morning we got a metered taxi to the bottom of Lang Bian mountain (170,000D), paid the 10,000d entrance fee each and hired a jeep to take us up. Although it's a Tarmac road all the way up it's very steep in parts so I think you're only allowed up if your vehicle has enough horsepower. Anyway the jeep was really fun. It costs 240,000d in total, and can hold up to 6 passengers.

The views from the top of Lang Bian are stunning, but be aware that, as with any mountain rain & cloud can come in quickly, obscuring your view. At the top there's a restaurant/cafe (which we didn't try), some semi-wild horses, people selling handicrafts, and you can dress up in costumes and have your photo taken.

When we'd seen enough our driver was waiting to drive us back down in the jeep, and at the bottom our taxi driver was waiting (even though we hadn't asked him to wait, but he didn't charge us for the time we waited).

In total the whole trip took us 1.5hrs from leaving Dalat, and cost us 600,000d. It's not a cheap way to do it, but it is a quick and easy way. Some of the tours include it in their itinerary, but I think you'd still need to pay extra for the jeep anyway. Unless, of course, you want to walk up- apparently it takes around 3 hrs!

Hope this helps anyone else considering a visit there.
