Adventure Dalat

One day bike and draft to Nha Trang

One day bike and raft from Dalat to Nha Trang

   This journey to Nha Trang starts with a 50-minutes transfer 40 kilometers to the northeast of Dalat on a new road and through the newest national park in Vietnam (Bidoup Nui Ba Park).  It offers fantastic cycling in the highlands as well as down a 30-kilometer pass to the lowlands. This downhill section is continuous, no joke.  

   The first section of the ride starts in the pine forest and rolls through the hills with beautiful views of farms, countryside, and Bidoup Mountain.  There is one final 2-kilometer climb to the top of the pass before some serious downhill. The 30 kilometer, an uninterrupted downhill section is the longest section of downhill we offer. And the longest we have been able to find. 

   After reaching the bottom of the pass we meet Shamrock Rafting (our partners in this trip), climb off the bikes, jump into the inflatable 2 man kayaks, purpose made for the kinds of rapids we encounter on the Cai River. This river forms from the many tributaries flowing out of the mountains we have just ridden down. We float down the river for a half an hour or so before stopping off at a small farm for a barbecue lunch and rest. 

   After lunch, we jump back into the boats and tackle a couple more sections of rapids, enjoy the fantastic scenery, and float our way closer to Nha Trang. At the end of the rafting, we climb out of the river and into our vehicle for a short 40-minutes ride to the city center. The total riding distance is customizable with about 50 km being the norm. The rafting section is about 10 kilometers.
