Discovery Central highlands

    The Central Highlands (Tay Nguyen) are a region of plateaus in South Central Viet Nam. It is where the past and the present unite, a land of Mysteous Mountains and forests where gongs can be heard, a world of customs that fascinate generations of anthropologists.

   It is a region of roiling mountains, forests, and immense coffee and rubber plantations that are divided into three levels of land called high plateaus, including Kon Tum, Dak Lak and Lang Biang. Endowed with a cool and pleasant climate, the city of Da Lat became a hill station for the French. It is a favorite destination for Vietnamese lovers.

   The climate is divided into two distinct seasons. The rainy season lasts from My to December, and the dry season from January to April. The lowest temperature is 180C and the highest is 250C.

   The area is accessible by plane from either Ha Noi or Ho Chi Minh City, and there are bus services to Buon Ma Thuot and Pleiku. The area can also be reached by car. The road passes by many remains and sites, including Cham Towers and Ngoan Muc Pass.
