Ta Nang–Phan Dung is also a very difficult trekking route that tourists will have to prepare carefully before the trip. Some slopes are so steep that travelers must use their hands to climb up the ways.
Hoang Van Quang, one of the very first tourism service providers in Ta Nang commune, said, “This area has two seasons, including the rainy and dry seasons. There are two branches of the route: one goes around the hills and one passes through Yaly waterfall. Most trekkers opt for the Yaly waterfall route in the rainy season when the grass is plentiful and shiny green."
During the journey, tourists will have a chance to explore the wilderness and scenic beauty of nature surrounding Ta Nang–Phan Dung. The trekking will wear people out but it’s worth it for the captivating landscape - green meadows that stretch to the horizon, endless green forest, and a chill wind that cools their skin and fills their lungs with fresh air.

It will take travelers three days to complete the route. People are advised to book a tour that can provide them with an experienced leader, meals, and tents. Tour companies work with the forest management forces, who can rescue travelers who become exhausted or lost in the forest.
After a long trip, the trekkers can stop to rest at the Two Pines (Hai Cay Thong) hill and camp overnight. This is a hill about 900m above sea level and has a very nice view.
To reach the Ta Nang trekking area, participants can take a bus or plane to Da Lat, and then move to Ta Hine junction (belonging to Dai Ninh Lake, Duc Trong, and Lam Dong). From Ta Hine junction, it is still a long way to the starting point of the trekking route, and tourists can rent a taxi to move to the edge of the forest.

Right at Ta Hine junction, there is the local Da Loan market. On the morning of the departure day, travelers can go to this market to explore local cuisine, and buy more food and necessary equipment before the trip.
The climate in the Central Highlands is divided into two distinct seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. Therefore, the Ta Nang - Phan Dung trails stand out with their own unique beauty of the green grass season and the burning grass season.
Green grass season: from June to December. Trekking in this season, participants will admire the lush green grassy hills. However, you should also pay attention to this point: because if it rains a lot, the path will be slippery and much more difficult.

Burning grass season: from January to May. This time is in the dry season so the trees are bare, and the stream is dry, which makes it easier for travelers to move around, even though the weather is still hot and muggy.
