“Worth a look but waterfalls aren't spectacular! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We visited here in Mid-July. It is certainly a bit out of the way and it took us about 45-60 minutes to get here by motorbike. The drive itself is fine and the majority of it is via a straight road, the last part is a but rocky but as long as to go slow, you'll be fine!

The waterfalls themselves aren't that great, a trickle of water in some parts but the trek up there (30minutes ish) and the general surroundings is what makes it. The first waterfall you get to is deep enough to swim in and there's space to jump in too. Quite a dangerous climb to No.3 so I wouldn't advise taking young children up that way.

Remember to take plenty of water for the day and don't be fooled by the shaded parts, lots of sun cream and big spray too! All in all though a pleasant day out! Certainly worth going and getting out of the hustle and bustle of Nha Trang!

“Remote and picturesque”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Approximately 25 kilometers North of Nha Trang, Ba Ho Falls appears to be a location a bit off the beaten track. There is 3 levels up to the main falls with each level increasingly more difficult to access. The trail is marked by red arrows and there is hand holds and cement steps in place where the going becomes difficult. June is the peak of the dry season so there's not much water running. The main falls were not much more than a trickle. The water flow is apparently better from August to October when the rains are heavier. A nice day out for the more adventurous.

“Epic Mountain Scenery along the way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Some of the most epic mountain scenery we saw while driving our rented motorbike here from Nha Trang. We spent a few hours there hiking up the trail to the 3 falls.

“Unremarkable waterfalls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The waterfalls are not very exciting or beautiful, but the trip to them had spectacular views of the mountains and the ocean.
We chose to take a cycling trip with Vietnam Active, which was a great way to see the scenery on the journey. The trek to the waterfalls over the rocks and throught the jungle was great fun

“Wow; worth the effort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

This place is a bit out of the way, but certainly worth the effort (near Nha Trang). We had a driver which made it easier, but there were others who came by motorbike. A short but rocky hike takes you to the waterfall, be prepared. Bring mosquito spray and water and don't forget a few dollars/dong to pay the nice ladies who bring food and water up to the falls. There is a hike to get to the best waterfalls/pools but worth it. Give it a look; you won't be sorry.
