The day of hiking and kayaking in Dalat starts with a short 15 minute vehicle transfer. You go up from 1,500 meters to the ridgeline which meanders between 1,650 and 1,700 meters. The road up is steep to begin with and both sides of the trail are dotted with pine trees. The reward for this steep uphill climb is a fantastic view of the town and surrounding area, with stunning views of Langbian Mountain in the north.
