    Day 13 Da Lat

    October 14, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 22 °C

    For this day the plan was to do a downhill bike tour in the hills around Da Lat. Originally we wanted to do Canyoning but this and Rafting is closed at the moment (because a Korean man died lately - had a heart attack) and so cycling was the best option. Christi told Lion (our guide) we are experienced and want to have the hardest tour they offer. In fact I never did a downhill tour in my life and I even didn't sit on a Mountainbike since years ;-) What a good tour to start with. It did make fun and the landscape was amazing but I was also scared going down the hills too fast. The parts going up the hills nearly killed me, it was also quite hot and if you are not used to it - that is not the best combination. On the steepest downhill part I also fell off the bike but fortunately only at a small pace. At the end of the tour we visited an impressive pagoda and its cellar where the hell of Buddhism is visualized. Back in the city we went to a night market after having a shower. For dinner the owner of the hostel prepared fresh spring rolls and fried rice. There were also other hostel guests joining and so it was quite nice. We went to bed early because of the exhausting day.Read more
