Nestled about 10km from the center of Dalat, Golden Valley - the city of endless pine forests and flowers in mists - leaves tourists with a breath-taking first impression of a picturesque landscape with fresh air, pine trees, brilliant flowers and murmuring brooks.
The 10ha tourist site is hugged by 170ha of sloping pine trees and green grass hills. Strolling on the hill, tourists can hear the sound of pine leaves chanting in the wind and indulge in the colorful flowers on the path to the hill as well as in souvenir shops.
Golden Valley features a harmony of natural and man-made beauty. Under the shade of pine trees and green grass is a rock garden with several types of precious stones, such as chalcedony and agate, in different shapes from simple to meticulous, carved by nature and the hands of artisans.
Large rocks lie along the sloping path to an artificial waterfall mysteriously named Thai Cuc Area, Luong Nghi Lake. Here, tourists can forget the sorrows and worries of daily life as they lie on the soft grass slopes of the hills under the pine trees and contemplate the blue sky. Lost in the immense ever-green pine forests are not only typical highlands plants, such as peach blossom in spring, cherry, yellow mimosa in sparkling silver leaves, red pine and p’mu, but also maple trees from Canada.
Golden Valley is a valley of pine trees, flowers, rocks, lakes and waterfalls. Orchards and flower gardens bloom with life while man-made streams, lakes and waterfalls create the tranquil harmony of an Asian philosophy of balance with the surrounding landscape.
After touring the park, tourists can stroll along the hill slope to Dankia-Suoi Vang Water Plant, which is near the park, to sense the tranquility of the central highlands at the immense blue lake in the shade of pine trees and peaceful winds. Here, tourists can enjoy a party after catching fish in the lake.
