Xuan Huong Lake, Da Lat

4.1
#3 of 12 in Nature in Da Lat
A sweeping crescent of mirror-still waters, Xuan Huong Lake stretches through the heart of the city. A man-made lake created in the early 20th century, the spot has become an icon of Dalat and a local hub for leisurely recreation. Explore by foot and wander a 7 km (4.3 mi) path, passing around the lake through a pine forest, flower gardens, and coffee shops. Then, hop on a swan pedal boat and glide elegantly across the surface of the 43 ha (106.6 ac) lake. You can rent tandem bikes, or simply sit under the flourishing conifers and admire the relaxed scenery. Using our custom trip planner, Da Lat attractions like Xuan Huong Lake can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
