Da Lat is the best place to take a hike in the central highlands of Vietnam. The all-year-round fresh air, beautiful nature, mountainous landscape, and the rich ethnic culture make Dalat a perfect hiking destination.
Da Lat, or Dalat is the capital of Lam Dong Province in Vietnam. The city is located 1,500 m (4,900 ft) above sea level on the Langbian Plateau in the southern parts of the Central Highlands region.
Da Lat’s specific sights are pine wood with twisting roads and tree marigold blossom in the winter. The city’s temperate weather stands in contrast to Vietnam’s otherwise tropical climate. Mist covering the valleys almost year-round leads to its name “City of Eternal Spring”.
