Lang Biang is a simple trekking trail, suitable for beginners with around 4 hours of walking. With clear pathways and gently slopes, you can walk at a moderate pace and feel free to take a rest whenever you need to. It sounds more like an enjoyable walk during spring to give yourself time to watch everything in bloom. When you reach the top of Lang Biang, spend some time there to admire the view of the whole Da Lat city from the height of 2.167m. Especially if you come here in the early morning or late afternoon, you can admire the indescribable beauty of Dat Lat in the fog whilst being surrounded by the clouds.

Legend says that the name Lang Biang was derived from the name a couple who were deeply in love with each other - the boy named K'lang and the girl named Ho Biang. They fell in love with each other after K’lang saved Biang’s life from a fierce heard of wolves. However, they weren’t allowed to get married due to the long-standing feud between their tribes.

Lang Biang - The roof of Lam Vien Highland

Generally, there are two versions of this story. One said that at last, they got married and then moved onto a mountain to live. Unfortunately, when Biang caught a critically illness, K’lang had to come back to the tribe to ask for help, the people here shot him with a poisonous arrow. However, it was Ho Biang to be shot since she had shielded her husband. K'lang could not suffer such loss, he cried and his tear made up a big stream which is now called Dankia (the Golden Stream). The second version said that: the couple committed suicide together since they couldn’t get married.

In both versions, Ho Biang's father was so repentant of his daughter’s dead that he unified the tribes into one called K'ho and allowed boys and girls in K’Ho group to get married to each other. Their graves then grew into the two giant mountains, and in order to memorize the couple with profound love, the mountain range was renamed into what we call it today: Lang Biang.

Lang Biang - The roof of Lam Vien Highland

Since Lang Biang consists of the two highest peaks of Lam Vien Highland: Lang Biang (2,167m) and 2,287m high Bidoup Ban, which is often regarded as the roof of Dalat. The mountain is famous for its spectacular nature, as well as its marvelous view of the whole wide area of Dalat City, the forest, the rivers and houses of tribal people.

Standing on the top of Lang Biang Mountain, tourists can see the Golden Stream and Silver Stream, or observe fanciful Dalat, which looks like a lush green valley with two pieces of silver silk (the Golden and Silver Stream)

How to get there? Lang Biang is located in Lac Duong Ward, about 20km away from Da Lat city. From Da Lat market, you can either jump on a bus or hire a motorbike to go there with the help of a city map, which you can find free at Da Lat post office or use any online map.

Special note: From the bottom of Lang Biang mountain, you walk along the pathway to Yen Ngu t-section, from there, you have 2 trekking routes.
