With over 4.8 hectares of land within its borders, this 3 days’ package (November – March) encapsulates the essence of the region in the best way possible – ample opportunities for exploration, sample local Vietnamese cuisine and be among nature in a responsible way.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Day 1 | 3 Days Lak Tented Camp Immersion

Day 1

Buon Ma Thuot – Lak Lake                                                                                           [D]

Arrival by domestic flight (not included) from Hanoi, Da Nang or Ho Chi Minh City. You will be welcomed by our guide and driver at the domestic airport before heading over in direction of Lak Lake, approximately 50 kilometres outside of Buon Ma Thuot (1 hour drive).

Upon arrival at Lak Lake, board the resort’s own boat for a short ride to the Lak Tented Camp (around 10 minutes). After check-in and freshening up, the afternoon is free to explore the beauty of Lak Lake on your own. To embrace the serenity of the region, Lak Tented Camp comprises of in total 15 tented lodges, all with lake view and 4 Lakefront Wooden Bungalows, waterside terraces for an al-fresco dining opportunity, a restaurant and a tastefully restored M’Nong long house for dining opportunities in an authentic setting.

Around Lak Lake, the largest body of water in the Central Highlands of Vietnam still is home to a few local settlements, related mainly to the M’Nong ethnic minority, a native group of hill tribes that call this area their ancestral home. During your stay, guests can make use once of either the camp’s kayak (1 hour) or bicycles (up to a maximum of 2 hours). These offers are valid one time per stay per person. In the evening, guests are treated with a Gong performance followed by dinner at the Y Lak restaurant

Day 2 | 3 Days Lak Tented Camp Immersion

Day 2

Lak Lake                                                                                                                                [B, L, D]

Lak Lake’s sheer size makes it an excellent area for boat trips and the one this early in the morning sees the sun slowly rising in the east as local fishermen gently prepare themselves for a day on the water. Alongside the lake banks, one may see the first residents preparing another day in natural paradise as we make our way across the lake. As the day progresses, the colours of the lake harmoniously move with the position of the sun, and giving the surface a new colour. Not a moment on Lak Lake is the same…

After our boat trip, we head over to Yang Tao Village (around 7 kilometres from the camp). This local settlement is located at the foot of the Chu Yang Sin National Park. It is here where nature really shows its fabulous colours with dense forests, covering the almost hidden Bim Bip waterfall. The soft hike through the flora and trying to spot the fauna guarantees a walk through a pristine side of Vietnam. We’d highly recommend bring a bathing suit with you as the natural pools here provide an excellent spot to cool down during this 2-hour hike through nature.

Picnic lunch is included

We head back to the camp in the afternoon, ample time to explore the camp’s organic farm, followed by a cooking demonstration. The meals at Lak Tented Camp are prepared according to healthy, fresh and using ingredients from either their own gardens or from nearby villages.

Lak Lake – Buon Ma Thuot                                                                                            [B, L]

The area around Lak Lake is home to a few minorities, with the M’Nong as being the most prominent one. After breakfast, follow your local guide through some of these villages and gain an insight in their daily lives. Nearby M’Nong villages of Nau and M’Lieng are among the oldest settlements around Lak Lake, living mostly of fishing and farming the fertile lands. You will learn more about the cultural values, their means to make a living, and their traditions to maintain their deeply-rooted beliefs. Customers will thoroughly enjoy this three hour walk through an unspoiled part of the country. Just before the afternoon arrives, you will be back at the camp for lunch and check-out.

Lunch included at Lak Tented Camp
