From the waterfalls of Ban Gioc to those of Pongour, Vietnam is home to a stunning and incredible selection of falls. Some are perfect for dipping, while others make for lovely picnic spots; some are even ideal of those who are seeking tranquillity. However, all of them are worth visiting.

May Waterfall

May Waterfall (which translates into ‘cloud’) is about a three-hour drive from Hanoi and is a true gem. Although the route is poorly managed, the experience is completely rewarding. May Waterfall consists of more than nine individual falls in low season, resembling a sea of cascading clouds.

Khe Van Waterfall

Hikers can take the mountainous paths, which trail through dense forests, paddy fields, and ethnic villages, to reach the Khe Van Waterfall. At the height of 100 metres (328 feet), the waterfall has three levels of water, pouring over large slabs of rock, which creates beautiful, smooth and crystal-clear streams.

Phu Cuong Waterfall

A one-hour drive from Pleiku and a 20-minute climb will bring you to this breathtaking cascade – a steady flow of water tumbling over red rock – which is an excellent refuge from the crowds of tourists.
