An incredibble amount of water are splashing down with unbelivable power in this massive waterfall. You can walk down a little path to se it from the downside and even walk in under it (but then you do get wet). And don't miss the temple just beside, a really nice one.

Elephant Waterfalls was part of the tour which makes Mui Ne’s Fairy Springs look pathetic there is also a chance to climb underneath the waterfall behind the waterfall. Right next to elephant waterfalls is a Buddhist Temple and gardens which we visited. Have a look at my blog for more things to do :) http://happinessblog.org/2015/01/23/in-the-end-we-only-regret-the-chances-we-didnt-take-dalat-vietnam/

It is a pity that they haven't cleaned up around the falls, lot so garbage everywhere. We saw other more spectacular falls in Vietnam.

About 40km from Dalat, the waterfall has around 30meter in height, it's a nice view walking all the way closed to the waterfall. However there is no proper footpath, very steep slopes, slippery, uneven & dangerous. So be prepared to have a non slipped & good pair of walking shoes. Be very careful, not suitable for young & old.

We drove by during our easy rider tour. We had seen a lot of waterfalls during our Asia trip before this one. The drive to the waterfall has some good scenary. We found The waterfall itself nice. You can stand next to the top of The waterfall but you can also walk down to see it from upfront. The waterfall... More

I loved going here. I motorbiked with some guys I met at the hostel. That's the only way to go. It's a very beautiful ride. Take the right shoes. I cracked the soles of my shoes in half and had to use a second pair I brought. It's very slippery so be careful. Also, there's a little offshoot that allows... More

The falls are attractive but are just what they are billed as, ie a waterfall. There are some stalls, where a local minority ethnic tribe sells some lovely woven silk items, and a beautiful pagoda two minutes walk away.

This is one slippery descent that is definitely not for the elderly, nor people with knee problems. The view that greets you at the end of the descent is a magnificent spread of waters about 20 m across in breadth I reckon. To see why they call this the elephant falls, you have to go back up the falls and... More
