Datanla Waterfalls, Da Lat Overview

Approximately 6km from the city of Da Lat, Datanla Waterfalls are among the city's primary attractions for locals as well as tourists. While the falls themselves are not very spectacular, it is the adventure activities here that make it more popular.

3 km away from the pine-studded Prenn Falls, Datanla Waterfalls are situated to the south of town and consist of 7 strata. 
The top draw is undoubtedly the toboggan-like ride that begins from the car park and goes all the way up to the falls themselves. Adventure seekers must surely try this! Cable cars are also available for going up and down as there is quite a distance between the car park and the main falls.
