Cu Lan village

Cu Lan village

Location:

Cu Lan village, lying in a small valley around 20km from Da Lat City, is a tourist attraction in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.

Characteristics:

Cu Lan Village is named after the sloth, a species of animal which used to live in the area. With devotion and due to investment from the tourist area’s manger, the site has become an interesting tourist destination for sight-seeing and discovery of nature.

The village has an area of approximately 30 hectares and existed for a long period of time in 1960s of 20th century. Native ethnic people living here are mostly K’ho ethnic group whose life bases on hunting and farming. Thanks to nature’s favor, the local residents often exploit a kind of tree of high economic value which is called Cu Lan trees. They use these trees for creating the shapes of sloths to sell to travelers.

Visitors can ride a horse along the valley’s path, or experience thrilling moments by taking some off-road vehicles to cross over streams and through forests. We preferred to walk so as to enjoy fully the local wild, natural beauty.
