Why Ba Ho Waterfall is special?
Nha Trang is famous for its interesting nature sites and one of these is the Ba Ho Waterfalls. Situated about 20 kilometers north of Nha Trang and three kilometers from Phu Huu Village, the famous waterfalls consist of a string of three waterfalls beneath a clear, refreshing pool surrounded by thick and dense forest. The scenery is filled with serenity and stillness as you feel immersed in an enchanting place with the numerous butterflies and soothing sound of nature. Get the chance to communicate to nature, breath the freshest air and leave feeling relaxed.
Under the glistening water, tourists can jump from huge rocks down to the cool water. For adventurous people, swimming in the waters isn’t enough. Using a stick and slow careful trek up to the rugged path heading to the peak, tourists can have a beautiful panorama of the three lakes.
What to explore at Ba Ho Waterfall?
Initially it is easy walking beside a stream through the foliage that gets thicker as you go, but then it turns into a scramble over large boulders and only the determined and reasonably fit will make it to the last pool. The trail eventually heads into the rocky stream bed and the real work begins. There are large red arrows to guide you, and the occasionally well-placed cement step to help the climb.
After the first pool you’ll see some metal rungs in the rocks where you have to climb up, and the hike can turn a little precarious for the faint of heart. The waterfalls and pools you’ll see along the way are small but charming, and this place gets a lot less tourists than the more walkable Soui Thien and Yang Bay Waterfalls to the west of Nha Trang. Surrounded by jungle-shrouded cliffs with nothing but nature as your companion is a fun way to accompany your dips into the chilly waters. Sometimes the local ladies will (sometimes by prior arrangement with a giude) will carry up chicken, cold drinks etc that they will cook up for you (very fresh) with delicious soup. You of course pay for this. You will be served lunch by the stream and they do all the hard work whilst you relax in a hammock or sit on the rocks and admire the stream.
