2. Pongour Waterfall

  • Entrance Fee: 20,000 VND per adult and 10,000 VND per child

Not only the most famous site among Dalat waterfalls, Pongour Falls, with a height of 40 meters and a width of 100 meters, is one of Vietnam's greatest waterfalls.

The River Da Nhim as Pongour fall’s source,  thunders down on this picturesque waterfall, pouring down the seven stairwells, making this a must-see site for visitors of all ages. As a result, this waterfall is also known as the Seven Cascades. Climbing all seven levels of this benign waterfall and bathing in the tiny pools on each tier on a hot weather day is a pleasant experience

3. Cam Ly Waterfall

  • Entrance fee: 10,000 VND/ per person
  • Opening hours: 06:3 AM - 05:30 PM

Cam Ly waterfall is the closest to the centre of Dalat as it is located on Hoang Van Thu Street, only about 2km west of the city. The fall is roughly 10 meters high, which is not particularly high in comparison to other Dalat waterfalls, and it has very gentle flows. The panorama view is particularly remarkable because it encompasses not only the beauty of the waterfall but also the perspective of the surrounding large pine forest, however, the waterfall has an unpleasant smell that needs to be more maintained.

Cam Ly waterfall is small yet beautiful and convenient to have an escape trip to nature, especially if you don’t have much time but it’s not a highly recommended waterfall to visit.

4. Elephant Waterfall

Elephant Waterfall is known as one of the most beautiful Dalat waterfalls. Elephant is named for a massive rock that is said to resemble an elephant's head. The falls are located in a valley near Nam Ban village, nearly 30 kilometres from Da Lat's city center, at the bottom of a picturesque mountain pass. With a height of over 30 meters and a width of over 40 meters, it is one of the few waterfalls still in the wild and natural state, free from any artificial beauty.

The falls are tremendous and can be seen from the top and bottom. To reach the waterfall, visitors either take the uneven stone-stair path or go underneath the waterfall through a little tunnel, or for a part of the adventure, be prepared to be splashed by the misty streams pouring down the cascades. Bear in mind that the trail is extremely slippery due to the mossy rocks so be cautious.
