The Langbiang tourist site in the Central Highlands' Lam Dong Province has been suspended starting Friday after a South Korean tourist slipped off a cliff and died.

Tourism firm Dalattourist, the main investor of the site, said all tourism activities at the Langbiang site would be suspended until further notice. The company also said its coaster and canyoning activities at the Datanla Waterfall tourism site in Da Lat would be suspended until the end of Oct. 31 for maintenance.

A South Korean tourist died Thursday afternoon after losing her footing and falling four meters from a cliff atop of Langbiang mountain. The 60-year-old tourist was traveling with a group to the top of the mountain when she slipped while taking photos.

There are warning signs posted in the area where she slipped.

Langbiang is in Lac Duong District, 12 kilometers away from tourism hotspot Da Lat. It is over 2,100 kilometers above sea level and tourists either walk or travel by car to the top.

On Tuesday, four South Korean tourists died when a flash flood swept their jeep away in Lac Duong District.
