Love Waterfall, Sapa

4.2
#3 of 11 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.

  • Beautiful spot to visit. Was misty and light rain on our visit but was still spectacular. Bit of a trek downhill, seemed easier coming back up. Toilets are nasty, avoid them if you can.  more »

  • Definitely worth the while to trek. About 2km which took us about 30mins or so. Small river crossing at the end which was extremely fun for the kids.  more »

  • 70.000 vnd for ticket to go inside here. Worth trying, nice waterfall near the town, 15km from the town center. Need a good shoes to walk cause its pretty tired walk up and down. Waterfall is beautiful though i saw some rubbishes around and it seems like people left it before they go.
  • Park rangers busted us for trying to hike up Fansipan without a guide so went to Love Waterfall instead and it turned out to be very lovely! Worth the small fee. Nice trail and bathrooms along the way.
  • This is a beautiful retreat away from the madness of the Vietnamese roads. You take a walk through a tranquil wooded area to the waterfall. Plenty of steps to take should this be a challenge for you.
  • Amazing place, really nice hike until you get to the waterfall which must be one of the nicest I've ever seen in south east Asia. You could also swim in it if it's a warm day. There are also some real nice locals cooking food before the trek starts. Well worth a visit, lots to explore and the best around Sapa.
  • Beautiful destination. And a great walk through the forest to get there.
