Share on Google Plus
Pongour – a Stunning Terraced Waterfall in VietnamThe 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 ear 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.
