Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival at Lak Lake
Today you’ll leave the bustling streets behind and head to a lesser-explored area, the Central Highlands. As you arrive at Lak Lake you’ll see why this area is so special, with the glassy water reflecting the clouds above and a tranquil atmosphere perfect for recharging. Your time today is free to spend as you wish: sit back and enjoy the views of the lake, cycle past plantations or kayak out onto the still water. In the evening, enjoy a Gong performance followed by dinner at the camp’s restaurant.
Trek in surrounding area
After waking to the serene views across the lake you’ll take a boat ride to enjoy the sunrise. As you watch fishermen preparing for the day and life around the lake stirs, you’ll feel a million miles from the beeping scooters on the city streets. Next, you’ll head out on a trek which leads you to hidden waterfalls and natural pools where you can take a refreshing dip before visiting lakeside villages to learn about the flora, fauna and culture of this relatively undiscovered area.
Village visit & departure
This morning you’ll join your small group for the last time to take a guided tour that explores the M’Nong ethnic villages around Lak Lake, learning about their lifestyle and farming activities. This’ll give you a real insight into life here and the melting pot of cultures that makes Vietnam. After a tasty lunch and final farewell, you’ll head onwards on your journey through this diverse country.
The activities you do and the order may change depending on the season and your next destination.
