The cable car is modern, quiet and comfortable and is a lovely way to arrive at the Monastery. This property is just delightful, the buildings, gardens and absolute peacefulness of the Zen Monastery makes you feel as though you were the only people there. Sadly our peace was soon interrupted by a very selfish tourist with a very noisy drone... More

We went over by cable car and then walked round the monastery. There was a sense of peace there. The buildings were lovely and the flowers great.

Very hard to find so make sure you take a taxi there and not try to walk because it's really far and closes pretty early (4pm). It's pretty slow, so not scary at all even though it's pretty high. View is incredible. Make sure you pick a sunny day to do it

Take a ride above the mountain city of Dalat and cruise above the pine trees! Make sure to bring your camera!

We went to the Pagoda via the cable car which was a spectacular way to arrive. The views from the cable car were amazing and the Pagoda very beautiful despite being crowded with tourists (some of whom have no concept of being quiet and respectful). Highly recommend taking the cable car there and back. We only bought a one way... More

Visiting this area you get 3 attractions in one. The pagoda and meditation centre with well maintained grounds, the lake and of course the chair lift with magnificient views. The chair lift is V.N.D.70,000 return and good value.

Cable ride is really nice, but the true purpose of it is to visit the amazing Temple on the other side (viewed from Dalat Centre) this temple was one of our highlights of the area. So tranquile and beautiful....
