Elephant Falls

Take in a refreshing view and dip of the Vietnamese countryside with a visit to the Elephant Falls.

The Elephant Falls can be found in a heavily-farmed valley at the bottom of a mountain pass, around 30 kilometres southwest of Da Lat. As one of the stops included on the Easy Rider Tours around the Central Highlands, the place is teeming with tourists and even establishments catering to guests. However, these do not discount the fact that this attraction remains to be a highly adventurous one. You will have to navigate and tackle the rough, slippery, and treacherous pathway going to the falls. But all your hardships will be worth it, as soon you will be rewarded with a view of the towering Elephant Falls and lush nature and wildlife everywhere.



The Elephant Falls is located in Ba Dinh, Nam Ban Town, Lam Ha District, Lam Dong Province, Da Lat.
