Canyoning in Da Lat, Vietnam

Repelling down a waterfall in dalat vietnam which is also called canyoning

Canyoning is the ultimate sport and not for the faint of heart. It will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable and exciting experiences of your life.


I discovered canyoning for the first time in Da Lat, Vietnam. It was the thrill of a lifetime and one that I’ll never forget!

My favorite part of the tour was repelling down the waterfall, the noise and rush I got from it was unforgettable.

The start of the falls, it gets a bit slippery from here! 

As I reached the bottom of the waterfall, the water was really rushing and it was really hard to focus!

Half way down the waterfall it gets crazy! You have to try not to get too much water in your mouth!

At the bottom of the waterfall you have to let go of the rope and fall, this was the part that nobody knew how to do!
