The thrilling three-province Ta Nang–Phan Dung trek

The thrilling three-province Ta Nang–Phan Dung trek
Adventurous travellers are no strangers to trekking, to the feeling of being one with nature, resting on a lush green hillside being cooled by a gentle breeze. This is what the Ta Nang–Phan Dung has to offer.

The 55km trekking route spans three provinces in southern central provinces of Lam Dong, Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan - descending from an elevation of 1,100 metres at its western-most point to 500m. The route starts from Ta Nang in Duc Trong District of Lam Dong and ends at the mountainous town of Phan Dung, Tuy Phong District of Binh Thuan.

Setting off on the bumpy basalt, soil-filled route at a tilt of 30-40 degrees at points, we come to realize that this trek, while not for the tourist seeking relaxation and well-serviced amenities, is of incomparable beauty. 

The route looks like an emerald silk flow of lush green meadow and patches of pine trees bordering the forests; making a magnificent yet delicate transition from the Central Highlands to the central coastal area unfolding before the adventurous trekkers.

“Trekking through this route, I can clearly feel the ethereal fog layers hovering above, hugging the hilltops, blowing cool breezes; I can feel the warm sparkling sunlight shining through the foliage onto the grass field full of crystal-like dew drops; various melodies of different birds echo endlessly from the hillsides and forests creating a mysterious concert that brings us to a seemingly surreal world,” wrote Tran Hoang Duc, a member of a trekking group.

Trekkers can choose any hillside to put up a tent for an overnight stop and experience a peaceful evening beside a warm, glowing bonfire under the shining stars.

Following the advice of previous trekkers, the trekking group pay attention to the triangle landmark where the three provinces of Lam Dong, Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan converge. Nearby is the Yavly Waterfall, where the water plunges down in a crashing crescendo to the bottom of a lake, creating white bubbles, mingles with the flow of nearby streams whispering to the mountains.

“Dipping in the fresh cool water of the waterfall is quite therapeutic: it washes away all the stress and tiredness. What an absolutely relaxing experience!” marveled Le Xuan Hung.

Dau, the highest point of the trekking route, is a wonderful spot to watch as dawn starts to break and the night fog dissolves among the green foliage to be replaced by the glowing red sunshine of early morning. Members of the trekking group walk through the dreamy, romantic landscape stretching from one hillside to the next until dusk, when the Ta Nang–Phan Dung trek dons its mysterious and sombre cloak.
