Crémaillere Railway


About 500m to the east of Xuan Huong Lake is a train station and, although you aren’t likely to arrive in Dalat by train, the station is worth a visit. The crémaillere (cog railway) linked Dalat and Thap Cham from 1928 to 1964 , when is was closed because of VC attacks. The line has been partially repaired and is now operated as a tourist attraction.. You can’t get to anywhere useful (like Saigon) on this train, but you can ride 8km down the tracks to Trai Mat village and back again.
