Not as good as expected. It's an ordinary lake. Period. I have never been on an elephant ride in my life. Decided to try and regretted every second of it. It was neither comfortable for me nor for dumbo. Not that my guide was beating dumbo. It just wasn't too cool to put my weight (along with the cage) on... More

Visited this spot when we were travelling from DaLat to Nha Trang by motorbike with a guide. Stopped here for lunch (most guides book tourists in for elephant rides too but I told our guide I didn't want to go on one). The lake is beautiful and the surrounding scenery is lovely but when we saw the poor elephants it... More

Duc Mai Coffee tour agency is just opposite (realized much later). When I called first Duc Mai, was quoted 200,000 vnd for traditional... More

we were going to there in a daytrip with a car. First we visited M'Lieng village. Here no tourists and very natural living people. If you like to see how the M'nong live, this is the place to be (I think at this moment it's a gem). Dont go to take pictures of the people, have respect and then they... More

Our guide Hoang, took us out into the national park, camped with us in the forest, took us fishing, showed us waterfalls, took us trekking, and brought us to Lak Lake. Lak Lake was AMAZING! Such a peaceful landscape, much different than the big city... More

Lak lake is a lovely lake next to JUNvillage of Ede mountain ethnic group. Beautiful sunset on the lake from 5h30 pm, great friendly people and the elephant ride (20USD for 2 people,,) is the highlight.
