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


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.


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


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.

Onetrip cannot be beat! This was my 4th tour with them (1st in Dalat). I've done many tours in Vietnam and SE Asia as a whole and none of them have matched the feeling I get after an adventure with Onetrip.Seriously, I hope anyone reading my review will take my advice. Vietnam is an amazing country that's overpopulated with tour agencies that treat you like an item on a conveyor belt. They may be cheaper but you get so much less for your dollars worth that it's not worth it. Everyone I've met from this company is a genuine person that sincerely wants to give each visitor a memorable experience in Vietnam. I just finished my waterfall tour and felt like every moment was personally catered to me. Nothing felt touristy at all. I met some wonderful local people and never had to compete with large groups to get a picture anywhere. I'm looking forward to future adventures through onetrip. It's nice to have a company where I can pick any trip and confidently know there's a great day in front of me. Thank you Tintin for making it happen. You are the best!!!

We love our friends at OneTrip! Since we had an amazing time with our OneTrip city tour in Nha Trang, we signed up for the Da Lat city tour via motorbike. The four hour tour went by quickly as we went to see the overview of Dalat, take the cable car for a view of Da Lat, tried banh can (a specialty in Da Lat), saw several pagodas, and more. Loved hearing the history and the stories of the city.The next day we went on an incredible all day waterfall tour. This is a must-do adventure when you're in Da Lat. How else can you see Pongour Waterfall, the second largest waterfall in Vietnam, and the Elephant Waterfall? Plus, seeing non-touristy parts of Da Lat such as the Chicken Village and the mushroom village was fun to see.Guides were fun to hang out with and very friendly. After spending two days with them, we developed a close friendship. Plus, they took beautiful photos of our family.We appreciate how the company works with locals so there is a more direct impact with the community. We can't wait to take more tours with OneTrip in other parts of Vietnam. Thanks again OneTrip!

I had so much fun! Tintin drove through places I would have never discovered on my own or on a tourist bus. Amazing waterfalls, food and kick assignment coffee. Highly recommended!
