Elephant Falls, Da Lat

3.8
#1 of 15 in Parks in Da Lat
Waterfall Landmark
Feel the force of nature as you stand on giant boulders in the middle of the water at Elephant Falls, a massive 30 m (98 ft) tall curved waterfall crashing onto the rocks below. Set amid rugged terrain surrounded by a heavily farmed area with some pristine forests, small caves, and ancient trees, the waterfall got its name after a local legend involving elephants and the song of a heartbroken girl. Following a steep, slippery walk on stone steps with some railings, you can reach an observation point above the falls. Below, you can also enter a small cave behind the falls, where you'll get sprayed with misty water. Lying some 30 km (18.6 mi) from Dalat, you can reach the site easily by catching a local bus.

  • When going to elephant waterfall, ask your guide to take you to the hidden cave that most tourists miss! It's absolutely breathtaking!!  more »
  • Included the visit to the falls as part of a day countryside trip. The waterfall was worth the scramble down the slippery and narrow path. Would visit Pongour falls in preference as the falls are more...  more »
  • Worth the time to go. The falls are spectacular, however take care on the decent to the bottom. Check out the weasel coffee farm on the way.  more »

Where to stay in Da Lat

Long considered a summer retreat town, Da Lat offers plenty of accommodations, great and small, to choose from. Head down to the lake to find the most luxurious options in town, with old French colonial buildings featuring lake-view rooms, spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as some newer resort-style options offering ample grounds, golf courses, and scenic views. Head back from the water and the colonial areas to discover simpler hotels and guesthouses, with comfortable rooms, Wi-Fi, and breakfast included, as well as a number of dormitory-style hostels.
