The waterfall is magnificent during rainy season. The trip was planned with Mr. Linh Tour from Hanoi, and it was great with Long, a good driver and Nha, very knowledgeable as a tour guide.

Enjoyed a swim near the waterfall & raft ride. You get quite wet on the raft from the spray. Other side of the river is China.
