Cau Dat Tea Hill
In the typical cold weather of Da Lat, tourists would have a memorable experience to enjoy the dawn amid with white clouds gently floating. In particular, the top of tea hill is one of the most wonderful destinations to admire the sea of clouds.
About 25 km from the center of Da Lat, Cau Dat Green Tea Hill seems to be one of the most wonderful places for cloudy hunting in the youth. If you want to hunt for clouds, you need to get up early from 4:30 to catch the dawn. Unlike the majestic and breathtaking view in the Northwest mountainous region, the sea of clouds in Da Lat brings a romantic and poetic picture.

Chu Yang Lak Peak
Another unpopular destination for cloud hunting is Chu Yang Lak mountain top which is located in Lak district. It is about 50 km from Buon Ma Thuot city (Dak Lak province).
