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

What 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 your way successfully. Other sections can be hiked or swam through.This one day trip starts to south of Dalat City. You will drive along picturesque scenic roads to the trail head, where you start your journey. 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 49 foot (15 meter) descent into the river below. There is a beautiful waterfall right next to the area you descend into.After that, your second rappel will be placed on a 32 foot (10 meter) vertical dry cliff. From here you head further down the canyon to a spectacular natural water slide. You will take your 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 you have to get down into the river itself to continue forward. You have two more exhilarating rappels through waterfalls, including the infamous “Washing Machine” before you walk out of the canyon (45 minutes) and meet your vehicle for transport back to Dalat.
