Love Waterfall, Sapa

4.1
#3 of 10 in Parks in Sapa
Legendary bathing place of the fairies, Love Waterfall rises like a sparkling pyramid of light from a lush bamboo forest speckled with red, white, and yellow rhododendron flowers. The waterfall is attached to a legendary love story of a heavenly fairy, which turned into a bird in order to stay close to her lover--a young flute player. Follow a dirt road through a pristine forest to reach the base of the waterfall. Watch the body of water stumbling down from the peak of a mountain and streaming over golden rocks between plots of green grass and mossy bamboo clusters. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Sapa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Love Waterfall and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 1 km walking from the ticket office. The path to the waterfall is well made, with up and down walk. It is worth visiting as it is beautiful. Bring some water, you will need it.  more »
  • This place is less water in the winter and not so nice as I image. Water is very cold in the winter and seems to be not cleaned.  more »
  • If you have some time you can definitely consider. From Sapa 450000 dong paid by taxi there and back. The taxi driver stays there wait for you till you get back. It's a small walk through beautiful nature up to the waterfall.

  • Very nice visit from Sapa (around 45 min to get there by motorbike) From the entrance to the waterfall you will have to walk for 1 km,most of it uphill. Anyway, a cool waterfall when you can take several pictures (or take a bath if it is hot enough)
  • You will be amazed at this fall. Best of the best in Western North of Vietnam. Highly recommended.
  • 70k to get in, pretty uneven and tiring long walk to get to the main waterfall, with random buffalo droppings. Walk isn't too suitable for the elderly and children as it traverses extremely steep and perilously slippery in some places. But will be met by a beautiful waterfall.
  • 70k dong to get in. Spend 1hr here. Nice walk a lot of steps though. Random buffalo running around. Highlight at the end if the path is the love waterfall, not many tourists and looks magnificent. To get there: motorbike 20mins ride from sapa town
  • 70k VND to the park rangers in the booth for a 1km walk down a steep uneven stonework pathway to see a mediocre pebble stream and a mediocre waterfall. Water buffalo and picturesque house on the way. Suggest use energy to climb the stone steps to the free lookout beside the entrance gate.
