Pongour Falls, Lam Dong Province

4.6
#4 of 12 in Nature in Lam Dong Province
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.

  • We came to Da Lat for four days. Pongour Waterfall is approx 45 km from city center. I recommend the alternate route as it’s more scenic and much less traffic. On the way there are acres of coffee far...  more »
  • The Pongour falls has really surpassed our expectations! Really a cool and beautiful waterfall. Cool that you can climb and so in the waterfall. A really relaxing place that not touristy. We only have a handful of other people. Here you should really go when your in Da Lat. An hour on the scooter.

  • 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!

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.
