  • The name may be a bit misleading. Our "short waterfall hike" was much more adventurous than expected, as we pulled ourselves us wet rocks alongside the waterfall. A lovely stop on our tour through the...  more »
  • This was one of the experiences we will clearly remember! There are no wild botanical at the garden but you really feel you're in a jungle. You walk around and see some animals and beautiful plants, but the top is of course the waterfall! Shut up where is set beautifully. We took a swim and it was the most beautiful on a warm day! Do it! At the same time it is a cheap experience. 40,000 vnd p.p.

  • Breathtaking beauty of nature. Well-done landscape construction. Various routes fitting different level of strength and motivation. High diversity of plants. Thrilling hiking and trekking to Gio Waterfall. But the restaurant was a bit expensive and did not consist of many choices. Bringing along some foods and drinks is recommended.
  • Defiantly walk around this area if you like hiking. Worth the time spent on easy trails. The water fall is beautiful and s good spot to stop and have a packed snack a swim and relax. Make the waterfall the end of the trek as a treat to cool down.
  • A good place to go for a walk. It's not a major hike or anything, just an hour or so on mostly paved paths. There are some peacocks and monkeys in cages to look at and a nice little "lake" they call it, which is actually quite tiny, but it's nice to look at. Look up and you may see some wildlife. I spotted a yellow-throated marten and some good bird life.
  • Nice place! Long trek takes about 1h30 minutes (don't believe the ticket selling girl, she'll tell you it needs 3-4 hours) and entry fee is 40 000. There's a nice restaurant adjoining the entrance where you can get some energy back for an OK price! Trek itself is very nice, you get to see waterfalls, go through jungle like sceneries and pass a (small) lake where you can swim (though I didn't, water looked a bit murky to my taste!). A nice stop on the way to Paradise Cave!
  • The waterfall is amazing at the beginning (or end, depending on how you approach it) is absolutely stunning! Worth it alone for that
