Pongour Falls, Lam Dong Province
(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Cool waterfall, very recommend! Take the bike, move in the direction of Pongura and four on the way back in 2-and Prenn Datanla falls, each of them is worthy! And go in the order as they are on the track-sensations will grow! On the way to the beautiful local scenery, when Crick with the main road. Inspect the bottom of the waterfall, but I passed and above is excellent!

  • These are the best falls in all Da Lat, really amazing. And what is even best there are just few turists, not as in the other waterfalls. We really love the place.

  • Best among 3 waterfalls visited. Been to Datanla and Prenn. When I was there, very few visitor. Met an elderly China couple whom rented a motorbike and rode there themselves! If you are coming by plane, do visit this 1st before going to Dalat City. It's located at opposite side of Dalat City from the airport. If you travel from Dalat City, you'll still pass by the airport and it'll be almost an hour ride by taxi, costing around V$400,000 1 way.
  • Huge and amazing waterfalls. I got lucky and visited them a sunny day after an intense week of rain so they looked spectacular. They are located around 40 km away from Da Lat city, but you go mainly through the "highway" (sometimes can be very bumpy)
  • The beautiful waterfall in Duc Trong province in which take about 1hour for motorbike. The ticket is 20,000 vnd/ 1person and extra 5,000 vnd for parking. That's is very good price ( about 1$ in total). It's not crowded and worth to visit there!
  • Most beautiful Waterfall in South Vietnam, you need to rent a car or included this place to your package trip because it stay on the way from Da Lat to Mui Ne.
  • 5,000 vnd for parking. 10,000 vnd entrance fee. Not as big as elephant but more beautiful. Locals go here, few tourists. I recommend a drive on motorbike ($5) to get there you can see good views.
