Phu Cuong Waterfall

"Few years ago, not many tourists get to this waterfall because of the bumpy difficult roads, there is a caution on the way down to the foot of waterfall recommends “not for the faint of heart” for temporary construction only with undulating stone steps, along rickety wooden railing. Now things have changed, the staircase leading down to the waterfall was refreshed with solid iron."


Road and waterfall

          The Phu Cuong waterfall - is known for its natural beauty and the water falls from a height of 45m. It is a destination that you should not miss if you travel through the Central Highlands. You can enjoy the majestic beauty of the waterfall, but also the fresh atmosphere. You hear no sounds of engines, because the waterfall is located 45 km southeast of Pleiku. It is quite natural, without the restaurants, shops and kitsch that so often occurs at other sites in Vietnam. Be prepared, you will be amazed.

The waterfall is located next to an unassuming country road, a set of rusty metal stairs leads down to an enormous boulder garden. You must make your way carefully over the rocks to get an unobstructed view of the falls. Though there was evidence that a few people do visit the spot (rubbish left behind from picnics), specially during the weekend. And what’s really refreshing, aside from the mist tickling your face, is that there were no concrete animals, no swan boats or other such tourist-oriented additions.
It’s difficult to visit during rainy season (May to October) because of high water and wet, slippery rocks. The best time to go is just after rainy season has ended, when it is safe to climb over the rocks and the cascade is still full. There’s less water as dry season progresses.

 

Phu Cuong waterfall flows on the lava base on an inactive volcano. The foot of the waterfall is full of numerous magmatic rocks of all shapes; species of colourful wild flowers grow in between the alternating wet stone. In addition to a virtual sound of the falls, the scene is almost “absolute silence”. Waterfall flows to La Peet stream and flows into the Ayun River – where the Ayun Ha irrigation with water reservoir area of approximately 3.700ha was built.
If you want to explore the exciting nature of this place, please contact with the management committee of ecotourism Phu Cuong waterfall, there will be boats carrying tourists down the line La Peet River, out to the Ayun River. On the boat you can let go of the hook, enjoying mountain sightseeing. The boat will dock in a few points, and you can visit the village of Ba Na and Gia Rai nearby.

"When midday arrived we had a chance to admire the most wonderful beauty of the fall when the sunlight shines on leaves, flowers, and especially the flow of water below that light up the fanciful rainbow. Moreover, the luxuriant and diversified vegetation, pure atmosphere together with the melody of water slipping through crevices of rocks and birds twittering were really special features of this land.
The highlight of the area is also thousands of yellow rocks with different shapes and species as colorful wild flowers grow in between the alternating wet stone in front of the fall where tourists can take a seat and enjoy a snack and a drink. Moreover, around the area are enormous trees where visitors can find some shade from the heat."
