A mere one hour drive from Dalat is a great area with contrasting environments, perfect for some outdoor adventure. The trekking trails here are a mix of easy to moderate. We will journey through the Pine Forests and the dense Vietnam Jungle. Summit Pinhatt Mountain and overnight at a private campsite beside Tuyen Lam Lake. More trekking on the second day along the lake, mountain ridge lines, and through valleys before reaching our final destination, a small ethnic minority village. This moderate trek involves about 4 – 5 hours of hiking each day.
Day 1 : Dalat to the Jungle (6 hours trekking)
Dalat trekking, Vietnam trekking adventures We will pick you up at your Dalat hotel at 8:00 am and take about an hour scenic valley drive to the trekking base. The first section of trail takes us through ethnic minority villages and farms, and the Pine Forest. We continue to trek forest paths until we arrive at the base of Pinhatt Mountain. Here we will take a short rest to gain strength for the steep uphill climb (45 minutes) to the top of Pinhatt.
At the Pinhatt summit we will break for lunch. On our decsent you will notice a very dramatic change in the local flora. The valley you had entered is no longer the pine forest, but the dense jungle that Vietnam is so famous for. We will soon reach a private campsite where we will stop for the night. Here you can relax, take a swim or head out into the lake on one of our inflatable kayaks while watching the sun go down. After dinner and reminissing about the days events retire to your tent for a good night’s sleep.
Day 2: More trekking and back to Dalat (7 hours trekking)
After breakfast, start your day’s trek through the Pine Forest near the lake. Again, we will experience a dramatic change in scenery from pine forest to thick jungle. Trek amongst the multitude of plantlife and enjoy the cool jungle breeze. If you are lucky, you may see a wild orchid in bloom or a troop of wild gibbons.
Upon exiting this thick jungle section, we will walk between Elephant Mountain and another area peak. From our vantage point we will be able to see the small minority farms that dot the valley below. After lunch and a rest we continue walking through the valley until we come to a ridgeline, which we follow to Chicken Village. Finally, after a few stories about this neat little village you transfer to your hotel and call it a day.
