Are you an adrenalin junkie? Do you love the water? If so this adventure is for you! Professionally trained guides will show you the ropes and prepare you for the journey down the waterfalls. No previous experience is necessary for this action-packed day of hiking, rappelling, swimming, and sliding down the falls!
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 our way successfully. Other sections can be hiked or swam through.
This one-day trip starts to the south of Da Lat City. We drive along picturesque scenic roads to the trailhead, where we start our journey. There is a beautiful waterfall right next to the area we descend into. From here we head further down the canyon to a spectacular Tyrolean Traverse that drops down and over a waterfall and the river. 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 15-meter descent into the river below.
Natural water slides await us after this. We take our 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, we have to get down into the river itself to continue forward. We have two more exhilarating rappels through waterfalls, including the infamous “Washing Machine” before we walk out of the canyon (30 minutes) and meet our vehicle for transport back to Dalat.
