The Experience

Surrounded by a series of pine-covered hills, mountain passes, and hidden waterfalls, Da Lat is completely unique and different from the rest of Vietnam. If you are looking to explore what the region has to offer, join Onetrip on this Da Lat Waterfall Adventure that encompasses not only breathtaking sceneries, but history, culture and of course, delicious highland cuisine also. Who said you shouldn’t go chasing waterfalls?


Detailed itinerary

7:30 AM FOR MOTORBIKE / 8:00 AM FOR PRIVATE CAR

Your Onetrip guide will pick you up at your accommodation at 7:30 AM for motorcycle option and 8:00 AM for private car option. After a cup of coffee and a quick Vietnamese breakfast to get your gears running, off we go. Tuyen Lam lake, one of the most picturesque lakes in Da Lat, is our first stop. The vast water surface is surrounded by rugged mountains and pine forests. Stopping here will set the tone for the day ahead: exciting and fun.

Next, we will visit the Chicken Village, an oddball attraction that is home to some of Da Lat’s ethnic minority groups. A giant statue of a chicken welcomes you and as you explore the village, your guide will tell the story of two star-crossed lovers that will give you more insight into Vietnam’s history and culture.

Your next stop is another village, one that is famous for growing different kinds of mushrooms. As you walk around, you will get a glimpse of the mushroom cultivation and harvesting process. You can even buy some–fresh from the garden– for your cooking adventures later.

Next, we hit the road again and make our way towards the Pongour Waterfall. On the way there you will witness many beautiful coffee plantations, rice paddies, and wild sunflowers. As stunning as these are already, the Pongour Falls are bound to take your breath away. 100 meters wide and 50 meters high, this waterfall is made of seven separate levels of terraced rock and a big placid pool at the bottom. Take a couple of minutes here to recharge, watch as the dragonflies buzz around, and of course, snap some pictures.

And then it’s time for lunch! A local family will be waiting to welcome us into their home and serve a delicious spread of authentic Vietnamese dishes family-style, so you can eat to your heart's content. Don’t worry about overeating because there are hammocks where you can take a nap.

On the way back to Da Lat, we will stop by the Elephant Waterfall where you will enjoy exploring the area and getting sprayed by the cool, fresh water. Once it starts to get dark, we will head back towards Da Lat city and drop you off at your accommodation around 5:30 PM.

Note: there will be an additional stop after the Elephant Waterfall to visit a coffee farm and learn how coffee gets produced here. Da Lat is known for producing some of the best coffee beans in the world thanks to its ideal highland condition. So, after a quick history lesson, we’ll make sure you’ll get to drink some as well.


All-inclusive

Breakfast, drinks, entrance fee and a delicious Vietnamese lunch are included.


Important

Although the private car option is available, we recommend taking the motorcycle option as we think it is the best way to experience our Vietnamese culture. On a bike, we can stop whenever and wherever you want, whether it’s at a local football game or by the side of the road for a butt-break (yes, you will appreciate the butt-breaks!). The freedom is incomparable to anything else you've ever experienced.

For those with back problems or family with elderly or young children, then we recommend the private car option. Although, we have had a courageous 6-year old having a blast, loving every bit of the adventure.

Please note that there is a 30% cancellation fee for any cancellation made less than 24 hours prior to the tour date since we have to book many services in advance. Otherwise, there is a 5% transaction fee for bookings that are canceled 24 hours prior to the departure in order to cover for transaction processing costs.

My wife and I landed in Da Lat in the morning, checked into our accommodation, and then got picked up by Hung and Thuy and for our 1-5pm city tour. They took us to so many cool places in only 4 hours. The tour was so worth it because there is no way we could have seen everything by ourselves. We rode the cable cars, drank coffee, passed by old French abandoned ruins that I never knew of, visited the king, and went to the old train station.On our second day we went on the full day Da Lat waterfalls tour with Hung and Tham. We had breakfast, rode through the country side, visited the chicken village, mushroom farm, drank sugarcane in hammocks, saw waterfalls, went on a bumpy road, ate mulberries, had a delicious homemade meal from a local family, saw even more waterfalls, went in a cave beneath the waterfall, and finally drank weasel coffee. The roads were fun to ride on. It was such an incredible and memorable tour!I rode with Hung on his cool bike for both tours. He funny, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. After our second tour he recommended a delicious local restaurant, told us where to get currency exchanged, and even set up a taxi reservation to goto the airport tomorrow. I think he went above and beyond and is an excellent tour guide.One Trip Da Lat team, you did a good job.


We travelled in a group of 10 and stayed at Christina's in DaLat. We arrived at DaLat all tired and exhausted after our connecting flight from HCMC got delayed. When we arrived at Christina's we were warmly welcomed by Tham and Thuy. They quickly briefed us on our accommodation and arranged for a sumptous dinner. The next day, our full day trip with Onetrip started. We were brought to many interesting off the beaten track places throughout the day. We visited beautiful lakes, waterfalls, coffee plantation and even a cottage industry where an assortment of hand woven scarfs were available for sale.  This tour was led by Tin Tin and Tri Coco and they are so knowledgeable about the local culture. They kept us entertained throughout and the day passed so quickly. We count oursleves lucky to have them as our 'ambassador' for the day. We were even hosted by a local family for lunch and tasted to Thuy's excellent cooking of spicy chicken!  What stands out from Onetrip is that their tours are specifically chosen to show the Vietnamese local life and culture.Because we were so pleased with them, we decided to do a city tour the next day something we decided at the last minute. This time we were guided by Tham and Vi. This tour just cost us US$1 which is donated to the city and their services for free. Amazing but its true! Vi and Tham are excellent in what they do and as usual, there were plenty of laughter and fun throughout. Btw, communication with all the staff isnt a problem as they speak good English. NB: We used Onetrip again in HCMC on our last leg of our Vietnam adventure. What is there to say.....they are as as good as you can get!.


This is the greatest trip I have ever been on.Everything is nice, we had been to the waterfall and Tin Tin helped us took a lot of great photos! It is really nice to visit the village, I do like to know more about the culture instead of just going to the famous tourist spots. We had a local family lunch, a little nap after nap by sleeping in the hammock, very relaxing. So this is a nice trip to me as we know more about Viet through Tin Tin and the team as we also join other one day tour - bicycle. We spent three days in Da Lat and two days for the local tours, it is a worth.They are very helpful and nice. When we had problems, they helped a lot!I would love to visit Viet again, not because of the food but people. Thanks Tin Tin, Hung, Vi and Tham.Amazing!
