Ngo Anh Tuan, a representative of Dalat Discovery, mentioned that “Despite the stronger wind this year, which affects the beauty of the grass hills, the number of tourists booking camping tours is still increasing.” He also noted that the grass hill is at its most stunning state, but by mid-December, the grass begins to wither.
Due to its moderate elevation and gentle slopes, travelers can easily ride their motorbikes around the hill, searching for the most beautiful spots to enjoy the lovely view. They can read books, listen to music, or find a small, peaceful corner to host their camping or picnic day.
As Masara Hill doesn’t have many trees, the wind can be quite strong. With the expanse of the grassland, it is advisable for travelers to camp in groups or choose tours provided by reputable organizations for their safety.
