Authorities in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong have kick-started the 2019 Lang Biang Pink Grass Festival as pink grass once again takes over vast portions of local hills in Lac Duong District, creating an other-worldly scene.
As the rainy season comes to an end in Lam Dong and the dry season begins, the low temperature creates an ideal condition for a new generation of pink grass to engulf hilltops throughout several locations in the Dan Kia Lake – Golden Stream area.
Each blade of the grass is home to hundreds of tiny flowers which bloom into a collection of soft pink snowflakes each morning when the sun peaks over the mountaintops and casts light on tiny dewdrops that has been frozen on the grass.
The fantastic scene, considered one of the most beautiful of the year in the Central Highlands province, has made the area a famous photography spot for visitors.
The local administration in Lac Duong District has taken advantage of the location’s unusual landscape to establish an annual festival with the aim of boosting tourism.
The Lang Biang Pink Grass Festival, which is in its third edition this year, offers visitors a series of activities besides snapping photos with the pink grass, such as traditional music performances, folk games, and a horse race.
In addition to the Dan Kia Lake – Golden Stream area, other locations such as Trai Mat and Thai Phien in Da Lat City, the capital city of Lam Dong, also boast similar pink grasslands.
