Cycle through amazing trails in Dalat towards the beautiful Tham Pham Waterfall and enjoy beautiful sceneries along the way.
Dalat is a beautiful highland city in central Vietnam. It is the capital city of Lam Dong Province in Vietnam. Situated at around 1,500 metres above sea level, this beautiful city has a cool climate all year round which makes it perfect for a vacation to get away from the summer heat. Due to the French influence during the colonial era, the buildings in Dalat are heavily influenced by the French architecture style and designs. There is even a replica of Eiffel Tower in the city. Located in the highlands and mountainous area, Dalat is blessed with amazing unspoilt natures that attract many visitors to visit the city.
This tour will be bringing you on a cycling tour to Dalat’s wonderful natures. This 29 kilometres cycling journey will go behind Lang Biang Mountain and into an area newly annexed by the Bidoup Nui Ba National Park. The national park is also the newest one in Vietnam. This cycling trail heads towards the best waterfall in Dalat which is known as ‘Tham Pham’ by the local minority tribes. We start this journey by picking you up and then head towards the hills to the north west of the city. The transfer takes around 45 minutes where you can enjoy the scenic views along the way. As we drive up the western side of Dankia Lake and pass behind the Langbiang Mountain, we soon reach an elevation of approximately 1,750 metres above sea level.
We will drop off at a wide dirt road in the area and start to gear up for the cycling tour. Our experienced guide will brief on safety and procedures before you start cycling. Once everyone is ready, we will start cycling on the wide dirt road which is 7 kilometres away from the single track trail. This will be a warm-up for us before riding in different terrains later on. As you ride along the roads, enjoy the amazing views of forests and valleys surrounding you. Not long after, we will ride downhill on a single track section. We will descend from an elevation of 1,750 metres to 1,425 metres over 7 kilometres. Feel the air breezing past you as you cycle downhill. After that, the trail reaches a valley and flattens out as we cross over a clear mountain spring that flows into the Dankia Lake.
Next, we will start climbing up hills and cross over streams as we continue to head towards the waterfall. There are some small farms that plant all kinds of plantation along the way. After another short while of riding, we will then reach the top of Tham Pham Waterfall. Even before you see the waterfall, you can already hear its soaring sounds amidst the forest. Once you see the waterfall, it is no doubt one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Vietnam. While we enjoy the sight of the majestic waterfall, we will have our lunch in the area too. A delicious lunch of fresh veggies and fruits, baguettes with a variety of toppings, and a French-style pastry will be served to replenish your energy.
After lunch, we will begin our journey back cycling back to the trails we used to reach the waterfall. There will be more downhill rides as we previously cycled uphills on these trails. Then, we will use a different trail to cycle towards our finishing location. Soon, we will be able to see our transfer vehicle waiting for us on the roads. We get into the vehicle and transfer back to Dalat city to end our exciting journey. This cycling tour brings you to ride through different kinds of terrain which makes the ride even more exciting. Enjoy the amazing sceneries throughout the journey.
