Close Encounter

It's not very hard to walk down to the waterfall and have a close encounter. It's cooling and we are lucky to see the sun shine on it, a rainbow was form, and it's beautiful

We took a taxi with 3 other people out to see the falls. The flow was not the normal amount but worth a visit.

I came here as part of an Easyrider tour. The falls are worth seeing - not incredible, but good. From the other side, the rock formation looks like an elephant, apparently, hence the name. The driver hadn't told me to wear proper shoes, and I didn't realise we'd be coming here, so was in flip flops. That made for a... More

Went there today by motorbike. Had to pay the entrance/parking fee of 10.000 dong, however no ticket was provided, therefore I think the entrance fee was not official. I tried to climb down on slippery rocks to see the waterfall from the bottom. Not completely doable due to loads of mud and water. Did as much as I could to... More

I really didn't enjoy this activity. I found the path slippery and dangerous. The waterfall is great. If you enjoy challenge and have good non slip shoes then go for it.

Most waterfalls I've been to in Asia and Latin America have been small trickles. They've all been lovely, but none have been loud and gigantic. Finally, with Elephant Falls, I have seen the sheer power. This gigantic waterfall is a bit of a trek through some potentially dangerous stairs and rock paths. Doubly so because of the slick wet surfaces.... More

One of the better waterfalls we've seen. Pongour is nicer though. You can visit the waterfall yourself by renting a scooter. Very easy and only takes like 45 minutes.

We been there after the recommendations as the "must see" waterfall in Da Lat. Well, for sure its the largest one in the area, but not the nicest. The most "challenging" was the way down & back up; especially when it's raining. But even without the rain, the mist is making the sharp rocks rather slippery & difficult to manage.... More

Leaving the place with rather confused feelings I would never return to this waterfall myself. Yes, it's tall but that's all the waterfall can offer. It's wedged in well populated area and the access is a bit dangerous especially on a wet day. I wouldn't recommend considerably long travel to anyone. Not unless you like to visit less than average... More

This was one of many stops on a countryside tour I took from Da Lat. Not well kept up. Rather dirty. It was a bit slippery going down behind the falls. Scenery surrounding falls was just okay. Worth a quick visit if nearby but not an exclusive destination.
