SILK AND ELEPHANT ROAD
We start the ride from Dalat and heads out to the southwest past Cam Ly fall and this is where you warm up your legs with a couple of small hills and one big hill on paved road before enjoying some great downhills with some steep descents on big dirt road through pine forest, then through roses farms, carnations farms, gerbera farms with stunning views of Lang Biang Mt, before dropping 400 meters through a jungle forested valley. A nice time to contact with the daily lives of the K’ho minority people in Ta Nung village and go to the off road through the Banana villages & coffee plantations. The off road section is 20 kilometers of single track with fantastic downhill sections and truly brutal uphill climbs. Then a visit to the fascinating Elephant Waterfall and the nearby Linh An pagoda followed by a giant Budda statue on the back side of it. Enjoy the Vietnamese food at local restaurant. On the way enjoy local attractions along the way including a cricket farm, rice wine making factory, a local silk throwing factory to see the whole process of how silk is made and then see how people from the highland making the excellent weasel coffee. Return to Dalat by our supported van. The trip offers 60km of riding.
