Pongour Falls, Lam Dong Province

#5 of 13 in Nature in Lam Dong Province
Waterfall Nature / Park
Enjoy pristine nature at Pongour Falls, a popular tourist destination and place for many religious festivities. Dropping across a cascade from 40 m (131 ft), the water pours over a layered and terraced wall of rock which reduces its force making the scene look tame and poetic. According to a legend the waterfall silky streams were once hair of a beautiful beast tamer and slabs of rock were fossilized horns of her four obedient white rhinos. The waterfall stretches some 100 m (328 ft) amidst lush greenery and cicada sounds. Observe the falls from a restored royal pavilion if you do not want to walk.

  • Well worth a visit. One of the most beautiful waterfalls. In low season it's something amazing. Included in the excursion in Dalat, either he or Datanla falls, because it was both, I can say that Pongur worth it to go there. Huge Green Park and walkway leading down to the waterfall. You can make stunning pictures.

  • Do not miss this waterfall if you visit Da Lat. I found it much better than Elephant Falls. It is HUGE and reminded me more of Africa than Vietnam. Walk down to the base and then to the far right (if ...  more »

  • Very nice waterfall, one of my favorite. You must visit it. If you are brave you can go a little behind of the waterfall.
  • Spectacular scenery, specially in the rainy season. Apparently since they build a dam upstream the river flow has somewhat reduced apart from when it rains so much that they have to release some extra water.
  • One of the best Waterfalls in Vietnam. Never crowded, not much garbage. There are usually locals here picnicking and like to share drinks and food with foreigners. There are steep steps to get down to see the falls. Cold drinks and food stand at the bottom. Serviced washrooms.
  • Beautiful scenery with natural stepping stones for you to play "floor is lava". Or you can use the bridge if you don't feel like playing.
  • Very beautiful waterfall! We went with Easy Rider to these waterfalls and it was an absolute blast! We also stopped at a couple other places. I would highly recommend a visit!
