Trek the first day from just outside of Dalat on the Pinhatt trail to Nam Qua Campsite by Tuyen Lam Lake. The trail is moderate on the first day and walks along a jungle fringed ridgeline before descending to the campsite on the shore of the lake. The second day puts you deeper into the jungle as you trek further south. This moderate trek involves about 4 to 5 hours of hiking each day.
