1/ Da Sar early morning.
Da Sar is a beautiful village that local farmers farm vegetables in their greenhouses. And this is a great place to wait for sunrise. This location is recently discovered by local photographers. If you want to visit there, you have to trek through some coffe land, about 3km hillside, before you can reach to the hill top. Visitors can be easily lost. Our advice is to get a guide who know how to navigate through this maze of coffe farms.

The mountain is home to thousands of minority people who are native of this region, K’Ho people. This mountain offer spectacular landscape in the early morning. Visitors can visit here and wait for sunrise. From the top of the mountain, visitors can have a panoramic view of the City and overlooking Tuyen Lam Lake – the greatest lake of Da Lat City.
