Elephant Falls, Da Lat

#1 of 20 in Parks in Da Lat
Waterfall · Landmark
Feel the force of nature as you stand on giant boulders in the middle of the water at Elephant Falls, a massive 30 m (98 ft) tall curved waterfall crashing onto the rocks below. Set amid rugged terrain surrounded by a heavily farmed area with some pristine forests, small caves, and ancient trees, the waterfall got its name after a local legend involving elephants and the song of a heartbroken girl. Following a steep, slippery walk on stone steps with some railings, you can reach an observation point above the falls. Below, you can also enter a small cave behind the falls, where you'll get sprayed with misty water. Lying some 30 km (18.6 mi) from Dalat, you can reach the site easily by catching a local bus. Elephant Falls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • I went to see the falls with an Easy Rider. The place is spectacular. To get the best view one must climb some uneven steps, many of them. The steps could be slippery and there were some scary gaps...  more »
  • the walk down while mildly difficult but handrail all along assist. well worth it though great waterfall  more »
  • Nice spot, real jungle feeling, but very touristic and lots of rubbish at a second view when you go the "hidden" places. Apart from that a good place for a break and some photographs when you're not in the main tourist season.
  • A little over priced but a lovely waterfall. The hike down the mountain is interesting with basic support bars for assistance. I would only go if capable of descending and climb small rocks.
