The town of Di Linh (pronounced zee ling), also known as Djiring, is 1010m above sea level. The area's main product is tea, which is grown on giant plantations founded by the French. Only a few decades ago the region was famous for its tiger hunting, but the hunters were a little too efficient and the tigers now only survive as hideous fur coals and wall-mounted trophies.
The 32m-high Bo Bla Waterfall (admission 5000d;(7am-4.30pm) is on the east side of Hwy 20, 16km southwest of Di Linh, near the village of Lien Dam. There's a steep 25-minute walk down to the base of the falls, but you can get a good view from near the top of the path. Di Linh is 226km northeast of HCMC and 82km southwest of Dalat on Hwy 20. It's a pleasant drive, passing tea and coffee plantations and houses with racks of silk worms.
