“Worth the climb to the bottom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Its a pretty tough, difficult and very slippery climb to the bottom, feeling a bit like a monkey. But it was great fun.

“Nice big falls, difficult to access”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We visited Elephant Falls as part of our Easyrider Tour. Whilst it appears that there may have been so railings installed to help people access the falls some years ago they don't appear to have been maintained. To access the falls you have to climb over big rocks which at times can be slippery. The view once you get here is nice though.

“Nice, but very quite small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

From above its nothing really, but walk (climb) down the trail and see it from below was a good experience. There is almost a cave-like passage, which allows you to almost stand beneath the fall - quite fun and exciting for the kids. Pongour is a better waterfall experience - so suggest to do both (half a day) and if you only have time for one then do Pongour.

“Great views, but a little slippery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Definitely worth a visit but glad i had read previous reviews re the track. Would not have liked to walk done the track in thongs.

Much sure your guide allows enough time, ours only wanted us to go to one point and it felt rushed yet there are several points where you can get great shots and only takes a few extra minutes.

“Far away but worth the drive.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We rented a motorbike and cruised out here. Cheap admission, I think it was 10,000 dong. Don't wear flip flops. The trail is wet and steep. Great waterfall though except it smelled like turtles. If you drive yourself, go to nam ban and keep going and there is a sign on your right. The road is pretty rough and mountainous so be careful. It is almost exactly 30 km from dalat.
