Introduce you Da Lat – a famous tourism city in Vietnam
Da Lat city is the capital of Lam Dong province, located on Lam Vien plateau, in the Central Highlands, Vietnam. Since ancient times, this land is the residence of Lach, Chil and Sre people of Co Ho ethnic group.
In the language of K’ho, Da or Dak means water, river, stream, and Lat is the name of the tribe of the ethnic K’ho. So Da Lat is the stream of Lat people. For over 100 years this city of fog has many different interpretations and meanings. But today, we return the original meaning of Da Lat. It is a stream of Lat people, a homeland of Lat people, a member of the Vietnamese ethnic family.

How will you cycle in Da Lat, Vietnam?
The day tour starts from Da Lat with a pick up at your hotel by guide and driver from Vietnam Travel Group and head out to the east, passed Xuan Huong Lake and up through an area of flower farms. The city road turns from well-paved road to dirt road after 6 kilometers and meanders around Victory Lake before turning to single track.
After this single track section, we connect into a pine forested valley area to the east of Da Lat. This is where the hill starts to rise up in front of you. The trail varies between a wider dirt trail and technical single track. This section of the ride has great rolling sections, some very tough hills and steep descents.
The cycling journey will bring smiles to your face
After we have pounded out the steepest (but one of the shortest) hill on the ride, we come to a beautiful clearing that looks out over the forested area to the north of Da Lat. We take a well-earned rest here to have lunch. Da Lat is known as the vegetable garden of Vietnam and lunch offers you a chance to try some of Da Lat’s tasty product.
After lunch, we head out of the forest and back into the beautiful farmland area that sits at the mouth of the valley. We briefly overlap a section of trail ridden earlier and head back to Da Lat on sealed road to complete a lopsided, crazy looking figure 8.
