We stopped by Elephant Falls on the way to another waterfall (Pongour). Of all the waterfalls we saw in Da Lat, Elephant was the largest and most powerful. It's a bit of a climb down to the bottom and a bit dangerous, so bring appropriate footwear. We couldn't go down to the ground level in September as the rain had... More

A "true and proper" waterfall well worth the ride from Dalat. A steep walk down (take good trainers or walking boots) and you a rewarded with spectacular views from the valley floor.

The bike ride there was the best thing about it. Datanla falls was a whole lot better. Pretty difficult to get to the bottom of the falls and there was quite a bit of rubbish around.

We were visiting the Elephant Falls in September 2014 with a private guide and driver. The falls are around 45 min - 60 min outside of Dalat. Impressive falls especially the walk down the button of the falls, it's a small little adventure tour. Do bring old cloth and shoes, you will get wet and dirty. Great place.

In rainy season, you'll find a waterfall raging away. It's good fun clambering down the hill to get close to the waterfall. Not suitable for those who aren't confident on their feet. Slip through the little crevice at the end of the left-hand branch to find yourself right at the base of the fall. Prepare to get wet and muddy.
