Trip Description & Day-by-day Itinerary
Dalat Canyoning Tour – 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. If you love the water, this adventure, the Da Lat Canyoning Day Tour is for you. Professionally trained guides will show you the ropes and prepare you for the journey down the waterfall. No previous experience necessary for this action-packed day of rappelling, swimming, and sliding down the falls!
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 the river below
There is a beautiful waterfall right next to the area we descend into, and from here we head further down the canyon to a natural water slide. We take our time having a couple of goes at it before continuing downriver.
The trail meanders over some gently rolling, jungle fringed hills along the side of the river, and at points we have to get down into the river itself to continue forward.
The second rappel is more technical than the first and goes right down the middle of a 20 meter waterfall. We take a brief rest here and enjoy a snack before the plunge.
Just around the corner from this second descent is the opportunity to throw yourself 10 meters off a rock into a pool of water below.
And finally the most difficult rappel, affectionately known as “The Washing Machine”. If you needed a bath before you visited us, you won’t after this drop directly into the side of a raging river chute. Trip ends.
