Legend of Lang Biang love story
Legend has it that in the past, the K’ho people were divided into 2 branches, one side was the Lat people and the other was Chil people. Due to many conflicts, there are many hatred between the two tribes. Here is the whole story according to the elders:
Lang Biang and sad love story
There were a boy named K’lang (Lat) and a girl named H’biang (Chil). They happen met each other in the forest when picking fruits. At that time, H’biang had an accident when she was attacked by an aggressive wolf pack, and K’lang bravely saved herlife from that dangerous situation. Although they had only met once, they felt in love with each other.
But due to the conflict of the two tribes at the time, H’biang could not marry K’lang. K’lang then decided to ignore the customs and rituals, the two of them left together to go to a place on the top of the mountain to live and become husband and wife.
But happiness did not last long, H’biang became critically ill. K’lang tried all the remedies but could not help H’biang recover. He had to return to the village to find the remedy that can save his wife life. As a result, K’lang was attacked by the villagers, but H’biang jumped out to cover her husband and she was hit by a poison arrow.
Grief-stricken when his wife died, K’lang cried and formed a big stream that today called Da Nhim (crying stream). And he also went away, follow the call of his wife, after they died. H’biang’s father was very regretful, so he unified the two tribes to form the current K’ho tribe. And from there, men and women of both branches can freely love each other and get married.

Guide to conquer mount Lang Biang Dalat
Conquer a mountain is the dream of so many people. I know that all of the tourists come here to defeat this mountain but not everybody know exactly how to get it done. So, with over 10 years of experience working with this mountain and countless times successfully conquered it. Today, I’ll show you what to do what not to do to master mighty Lang Biang.
Time to conquer
If you want to do anything, you need to choose the right moment. And for me, the best time to visit Dalat and Lang Biang mountain is spring. The season of cherry blossoms in full bloom and the climate is much fresher!
Or you can go in the sunny season from November to the end of the year. Because the weather is not really rainy at this time, so it is very suitable for hiking. Other tip for you is to conquer Lang Biang mountain, you should depart in the early morning. So after reach the summit, you will have more time to explore things. And it is important to be able to hurriedly move down the mountain before sunset.
Have a well-prepared
First and foremost, you have to double-check your health condition. If you have any health issues related to heart or lung, you should think again.
Next: personal luggage. Remember, this is a mountain climbing trip, not a jogging one. So you should consider what you should, what you should not because it gonna be very strenuous. In addition, your clothes should be light and airy too.
Last but not least, water and dried food is primary concern if you don’t want to be dehydrated in the middle of the mountain. You should consider the friction trainers to avoid accidents on the slippery surface.
How to get to Lang Biang peak
There are various ways to get to the top of the mountain. We have listed several ways to reach Lang Biang peak below.
The price of a round-trip ticket get to Lang Biang is 60,000 VND / person. And if you go in groups, you can rent one for a price of 420,000 VND / car – maximum of 7 people.
The road to the top is very winding and bumpy. So when sitting in the car, sometimes it can hurt your back but the experience is worth a try.
Walking to the top along the asphalt
Walking up to the top of the mountain is very tiring, but you can experience a lot of interesting things. For example, if you just come across a beautiful scenery, you can take pictures right on the spot, and the sides of the road are lined with green pine trees, so you don’t have to worry about the sun at all. If you walking, you just need to pay the entrance fee, then follow the path to the peak.
Each time going up and down is estimated to be about 6km and it will take you around 2 hours or so. So this is not a favorite method of visitors.
Trekking is one of the favorite methods of foreign tourists. You will not walking along the asphalt but the trail instead. If you are a big fan of exploring nature, you must definitely try this out.
In your trip, you will cross Bidoup National Park and conquer Mount Ba. Time to get to the top will take you about 2 to 3 hours. But make sure your health is good, and before you go you should learn the basics about jungle like determine the direction and know how to treat a wound on your own, etc.
