Are you an adrenalin junkie? Do you love the water? If so this adventure is for you! Professionally trained guides will show you the ropes and prepare you for the journey down the waterfalls. No previous experience necessary for this action-packed day of rappelling, swimming, and sliding down the falls!
What is canyoning? Canyoning is navigating your way through a canyon. In this case, the canyon contains water and in some sections the topography requires ropes to navigate our way successfully. Other sections can be hiked or swam through.
This one day trip starts to the south of Dalat City. We drive along picturesque scenic roads to the trailhead, where we start our journey. At the practice slope you’ll learn the basics of knot tying, harness wearing, hardware, and proper rappelling technique. After the guides are satisfied that you’ve got it down, you’ll head down your first rappel! It is an exciting 15 meter descent into water at the base of a waterfall. Then continue navigating your way down the canyon and enjoy the natural water slides as many times as you want. Keep hiking along the trail through rainforest and a couple of water crossing to the second rappel down a waterfall – a slightly more technical rappel.
A short break on the top of this one to enjoy a picnic lunch to charge energy first before rappelling down this waterfall. After this there’s an opportunity to throw yourself 10 meters off the rock into a pool of water below. And finally the most difficult rappel, affectionately known as “The Washing Machine”. Then a 20 minute hike up the hill to bring you out of the canyon and meet the vehicle to get back to hotel.
