Ba Ho Waterfall

"Took a taxi out to the waterfalls with friends. Cost was 800.000 VND for return trip and driver waited for us for over 3 hours while we hiked up and explored the waterfalls. Water was a perfect temperature and beautiful to swim in. A few tourists were diving in from the rocks above which was a long drop. Didn't have the courage to try as heard some stories about accidents and near misses.
Hike to and from the car park is only a couple of km and fairly easy, although involves a little climbing over rocks etc.
There are some vendors selling drinks, coconuts and a small number of snacks but probably better to bring your own."


The Waterfall

          If lying on the beach is boring, it's nice walking to the Ba Ho Waterfall. That's a pleasant change. To get there you have to drive about 27 kilometres to the north along the coast, and then followed by a sweaty, challenging hike 25 minutes up the first of three waterfalls parties, where you can swim ("ba ho" means "three pools ").

The distance to the first waterfall is 1.4 kilometres. The route takes you along a red trail and starts as an unpaved path, before you have to walk suddenly over boulders. A challenging walk of 15 minutes is following with the necessary scrambling. You will probably need a walking stick. There are a couple of particularly difficult areas, requiring some strength and agility. A reasonable fitness is required, but of course you can do it more slowly.

Your reward is a delicious, refreshing splash in the first of three waterfalls. Jump in the pool, chill and let the small fish sip on your toes. You're probably the only person who's here. The second and third falls are even more challenging to achieve that. You have to climb over large rocks to reach the second and third waterfall, but you will be rewarded properly. Make sure you have enough water with you. And of course energy and time before you start.
Make sure you are reasonably fit, wear proper shoes, and/or bring extra clothes before making your way here.

When you want to go to Ba Ho Waterfalls, you best in Nha Trang take the scenic route along the coast. Drive from the centre to the north on Tran Phu Boulevard and across the Tran Phu bridge.

 


Down at the waterfall

Follow the coast road on Pham Van Dong all the way to the Amiana Resort, where the road curves to the left. A beautiful view follows the sea. This road is in good condition and most likely you will often see cyclists who slog to get over the hill.
Finally the Pham Van Dong joins the National Route 1. Look for a blue, white board "Ba Ho Tourist" and follow a rocky, unpaved road for 3.5 km to the parking lots.

From a travelogue:

"Me and friends rented scooters (£4 for the day) and took a trip to the waterfall. It was really beautiful once you got to the top and you are also able to do a cliff jump into the pool. The climb isnt too difficult but the path is very very narrow at some points. There is also a path ( red arrows painted) over and around the huge boulders which we climbed and found really fun. Only 20km from nha trang"
