Sometime when relevant tourism authorities are so competent (!), it is good to remember that taking affairs in you own hand is the best thing to do!
So here we go: promoting one of the best attraction around Nha Trang...
It been awhile since we are in business in Nha Trang (8 years already) and I am always surprised that 95% of our visitors never heard about Suối Ba Hồ(3 Lake Waterfalls)about 20km north of Nha Trang. It's easy to go by motorbike (or taxi) and it will easily fill a morning/afternoon activity slot.
Our team recommend Miss. Phuong (Direct Email)
A trustful local guide can also accompanied you at a very affordable rate.
Suối Ba Hồ is a stream system consisting of 3 waterfalls and small ponds (lakes if you will) that is sits against a mountainous a jungle forest! From the welcoming area (entrance fee, less than 20 000vnd), you'll have to walk a bit more than 1km, in a path following a stream, and when the path ends, red arrow painted on rock will lead you to the first waterfall and, if you wish, to the 2 other waterfalls.
Folks, this is an idyllic spot to have a romantic day with a love one or a picnic between friends. There is a team of 3 women (most of the time), selling beers, soft drinks ; you can even ask them to roast a whole chicken for you (around 200.000-300.000vnd) and be delivered to you near the first waterfall! There, on rocks that have been polished for thousands of years , comfortably sit next to the water stream (or inside a ''natural jacuzzis''); listening the jungle fauna sounds will makes you feel in a state of beatitude! So relaxing! Hitchhikers would be wise to climb up to waterfall #2 and #3, it is not a very challenging walk but it is worth it!
For people who like cliff jumping (see gif below), there is 2 spots; one around 7m the other one at around 11m. Please note that the pound is around 4m deep, so watch out the bottom. It is written in Vietnamese to not jump, so be aware that it is not recommended to do it. If something wrong happen, you'll have to be carried away on slippery terrains for more than a kilometer before you can even think to go to the hospital.
Please, collect all your belongings and trash before exiting the park, keep the environment clean. Oh, and be very respectful of the locals, they ''own'' the waterfalls, you are guests on their land. Remember it.
Recommended departure is around 4pm, sun goes down fast in Vietnam and there is 20km back on the National Highway 1, better to do it before dawn. Stay Safe.
