Pongour – a Stunning Terraced Waterfall in Vietnam

Pongour Waterfall, Dalat, Vietnam. The region is known for its romantic landscapes, rich with valleys, springs, lakes and pine hills. Among various waterfalls, Pongour, surrounded with a huge unspoiled forest, definitely stands out.

It is about 40 m high, 100 m wide. Its polished steps look like a natural amphitheater! A stream of water powerfully plunges down these seven staircases, filling the air with a loud sound. The waterfall is imposing, but not formidable. Its beauty is poetic and praised by the locals as well as tourists.

Why to go there?

One of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country. Easily accessed by two paths. Small shops or stalls selling water and food are around.

When to go there?

All year round. On the 15th of January locals gather to celebrate here and engage in the rituals as well as folk games.

How to get there?

The site is found 50 km from Dalat. Get there by car or on a guided tour.
