tour description

Transfer to Dalat cable car station. Savour the panoramic views of Dalat from the platform and then board the cable car for an enjoyable ride above pine forests and rolling hills to Truc Lam Pagoda - the largest Institute of Meditation in Vietnam.

The pagoda is set amidst pine forests right by the tranquil Tuyen Lam Lake. Opened in 1994 it is the largest pagoda in Dalat, located on Phuong Hoang (Phoenix) mountain, 4 km from Dalat. The pagoda's total area is 24.5 hectares and it is divided into 3 zones: a zone for the monks, a zone for the nuns and a zone for visitors. The first outline design saw the attendance of a famous architect, Mr. Ngo Viet Thu (also the architect of Doc lap Palace -now Thong Nhat Palace in Ho Chi Minh City).

Visit the pagoda and then take a relaxed boat trip on Tuyen Lam Lake, also known as the lake where rivers, springs and forests meet. Built in the 1980's, it is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in the area.

The two-seater cars (48 cars in total) carry visitors over the 1 km long route, meandering through pine forests and gradually descending around 200 meters from the top of the falls to the bottom. The cars are equipped with hand brakes, allowing riders to vary the speed. After having visited the falls, you can either go up by coaster or climb the stairs, following a lovely nature trail.
