Welcome to Dalat


The French came first, fleeing the heat of Saigon for average daily temperatures that hover between 15°C and 24°C. They left behind their holiday homes and a European resort vibe, which the Vietnamese have added to with their own unique, sometimes kitsch touches. Whether it’s the Eiffel Tower–shaped radio tower, the horse-drawn carriages or the colourful heart-shaped cut-outs at the Valley of Love, this is a town that takes romance seriously. Dalat is Vietnam's honeymoon capital and extremely popular with domestic tourists.

For foreign visitors, the moderate climate has made Dalat the adventure-sports capital of southern Vietnam, with canyoning, mountain biking, white-water rafting and treks into the surrounding hills all available.

Canyoning Tour Including Datanla Falls Rappelling from Dalat

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productWhat is canyoning? Canyoning is navigating your way through a canyon. In this case, the canyon runs through a series of spectacular waterfalls and in some sections the topography requires ropes to navigate our way successfully. Other sections can be hiked or swam through. This one-day trip starts to the south of Da Lat City. We drive along picturesque scenic roads to the trailhead, where we start our journey. There is a beautiful waterfall right next to the area we descend into. From here we head further down the canyon to a spectacular Tyrolean Traverse that drops down and over a waterfall and the river.At the practice slope you’ll learn the basics of knot tying, harness wearing, hardware, and proper rappelling technique.After the guides are satisfied that you’ve got it down, you’ll head down your first rappel! It is an exciting 15-meter descent into the river below. ​Duration: 4 hoursLocation: Datanla Falls, Da Lat, Lam Dong ProvinceNatural water slides await us after this. We take our time having a couple of goes at it before continuing downriver. The trail meanders over some gently rolling, jungle fringed hills along the side of the river, and at points we have to get down into the river itself to continue forward. We have two more exhilarating rappels through waterfalls, including the infamous “Washing Machine” before we walk out of the canyon (30 minutes) and meet our vehicle for transport back to Dalat.Duration: 5 minutesLocation: Phat Tire Ventures, Da Lat, Lam Dong Province
