Not your average Asian waterfall visit. Datanla throughout in a funtastic downhill tobagon ride and mini-cable car experience. If I knew then what I know now I'd have taken the single fare for the tobagon ride and skipped the cable car as it's too short to justify a fee but for a couple of dollars I won't be losing any...

The two highlights for us were the 3rd waterfall (I think it was the 3rd, the one with the elevator?) - this is just a great spot; amidst marvellous views. We did not take the elevator down as it seemed that the view is actually better from above. The 'Alpine coaster' is expensive (even compared to similar rides in Europe... More

Ok, the falls are beautiful, but the area is extremely touristy, there is a 'roller coaster' to go down (and up) with a very long line, that gets you to the first fall, then there is a cable car and an elevator to get to the next one ... all these are really not needed! It does not save you... More

Lots of things that distract you from the falls like roller coaster, cable car, pony and elephant rides ets. However the fall is worth seeing, you can walk almost all the way down.

The waterfalls are beautiful and the area well maintained. Just be careful of the taboggans, we went with a large group and some of the breaks did't work on the steeper decline resulting in a 4 cart collision and a few injuries.

Don't go waterfall chasing, half the waterfalls are really overrated. This is probably one of the better ones. After the entrance, getting down to the bottom of the waterfall can either be accomplished by walking down or by toboggan ride. Take the ride. Probably most fun you'll have around any of the waterfalls in Dalat. The waterfall is larger then... More

What a great combo of a waterfall and human transpotation contraptions. You can walk through the falls area and follow it down a gorgeous trail through the jungle. However, you can also ride a gondola or these crazy cars on tracks through the multi-leveled waterfall adventure, too! What a splendid day trip that can take 30 minutes or 2 hours.... More

The falls are pretty and the toboggan ride down was great fun, the a cable car down the gorge to the next level and then a clear elevator ride ti the 3rd leaved. We spent a fun couple of hours here, loved the toboggan ride so we did that twice. Don't go to close to closing as the queues get... More

Entry fee to the waterfall is 10,000VND. Not as crowded as we thought but definitely more spectacular than Prenn waterfall. The coaster ride was fun and some of us went for second round. Return trip is 45,000VND but the ride back was relatively unhappening. What I don't like about it is that you have no choice but to pay to... More
