Elephant Falls

Waterfall in Dalat

Named after a large rock that allegedly resembles an elephant's head (we couldn't see the similarity), these powerful curved falls are reached via a steep ascent along uneven, very slippery stone steps with intermittent railings. It can get a bit hairy when the route is congested, as it is often is. You can also squeeze yourself through a cave to get behind the falls and be doused with bracing spray. The falls are near Nam Ban village, 30km west of Dalat.

Local buses (20,000d, one hour) leave for Nam Ban from behind Dalat's main square every 40 minutes or so between 6am and 6pm.
