NDO – The Central Highlands province of Lam Dong has agreed to allow the Lac Duong district to host the Second Lang Biang Pink Grass Festival 2018, which is scheduled to begin in late November.

This is the second time that the festival will be held in Lam Dong, with an aim to make a new interesting destination and introduce the beautiful natural beauty of Lang Biang Plateau to visitors.

The event will be held during the blooming season of the unique pink grass, which only grows wildly in Lac Duong and nearby locales in late November and early December each year. The festival is scheduled from November 23 to December 2, in the area of Dankia - Suoi Vang Lake, Lac Duong town, Lac Duong district.

The pink grass hills have become a must-visit destination for many young people each year.

The organisers will set up romantic corners for people to visit and take photos on natural grass hills, as well as organising a traditional horse race without saddles by the ethnic Co Ho people and a photo exhibition on pink grass.

The Lam Dong authorities asked Lac Duong to mobilise additional social funding for the organisation of the event, in addition to focusing on protecting the natural landscape, promoting local cultural values and allowing local people and visitors to visit the grass hills free of charge.

In November 2017, the first-ever Pink Grass Festival took place in the area of Dankia - Suoi Vang, roughly 15 km from the Da Lat city’s centre tourist attraction.

Pink grass, a wild lawn in pink combined with a purple colour, only turns pink in Lac Duong once a year. In the last few years, nature lovers of the Lang Biang Plateau have recorded the beauty of the local grass and have shared the spectacle through many information channels, making domestic and international tourists wish to step on the hillside full of pink grass in early winter.
