Adventure Tourism!
Dec 2020
This is probably the most fun waterfall to visit in Vietnam though parts of it are not for the faint of heart! I see that many people have booked tours to this place but we just hired a driver for the day and set an itinerary. It worked out quite well. Ba Ho waterfall is really a park with a series of waterfalls, pools and a river for swimming, playing, picnicking and even bungalows to stay over. The park is really suffering from the lack of tourism in the area and from the fact that it's a bit distant from the center of town meaning that people won't just stumble on it without some effort. But DO MAKE THE EFFORT. It's totally worth it.

There are absolutely different difficultly levels in the different areas. The lowest level is great for kids. I think kids and less than very fit people can probably make it to the first pool at the base of the first waterfall you reach along the trail. After that, there's a lot of climbing and not steps...climbing - scrambling with ropes and iron steps and bars drilled into the rock. It's INTENSE. This is the sort of place that would have you sign a waiver, wear PPE or - just not be allowed in many parts of the world. But, we climbed all the way to the top of the marked path through the rocks and swam in all of the pools. It's all very tranquil right now since there are so few customers.

But, while Nha Trang is certainly known for its beaches, this is really a top attraction.

A stroll to a waterfall - not really
Jul 2020 • Family
Booked a trip with Vitamin Sea Travel and was picked up at our hotel in a new 7 seat sedan by Mr John and his driver around 8.40. John advised that we had another passenger to pick-up (which was a surprise) and we spent another 20 minutes driving around Nha Trang looking for Tom.
We were finally on our way to Ba Ho Waterfall around 9!
It took a forty minute drive to get there and then our real journey started. He had an easy walk of about 15 minutes from the entry up to the start of the 3 lake waterfall climb. I must admit that we were in the dry season and it was evident all around Nha Trang that it was extremely dry and there had not been rain for a long time (apart from the day we arrived 2 days before)!
I must say that the concept of 3 lakes is a total misnomer; it was safe to say, from this visit, that there were 3 small natural water pools making up the waterfall complex. However, the climb from Lake 1 to Lake 3 was quite steep and for someone expecting a leisurely stroll was quite surprising. The trail was well marked and included support ropes and other climbing aids (metal hand and footholds) which assisted the climb. Getting to Lake 2 was a bit more difficult and to Lake 3 was much more difficult. You really need to wear solid walking or sports shoes to complete the trek.
We reached Lake 3 after about 30 minutes and there we were able to have a swim. The highlight being nibbled on by small fish at no extra charge!
The walk back was obviously “all down hill” and a lot quicker.
However, I was left to wonder “where were the waterfalls”? As mentioned at the start it was the dry season but the impressive waterfalls displayed in the promo-photos were non-existent.
The Ba Ho complex itself is well-managed, kept clean and tidy, and provide food and beverage availability, toilet and shower facilities, and a nice and well equipped swimming lagoon at the entry. My daughter asked me to mentioned the various swings located at strategic spots along the trek.
We were there for about 2 1/2 hours and were quite hungry when we hit the road back to town. John took us to a small local restaurant where we enjoyed noodles with fish cakes and pork knuckle accompanied by cold tea.
Our trip finished with a 30 minute foot massage performed by blind masseurs.
Cost for the entire trip cost VND700k/head (approx $30).

That’s a awesome place!

That’s a awesome place!
The area includes a nice path to the waterfalls, the waterfalls themselves, cafe, bungalows, some food stands, a swimming pool, water activities, bathrooms. It’s all very well kept and nice to be in.

The entrance fee is 100.000 dong and for this you get to enter the waterfalls area and to the swimming pool and do water activities.

The waterfalls are beautiful, there are 3 areas they call “lakes”, make sure to make it to the last one. The all are great though.

The water activities include SUP boards, zorb, kayak , catamaran. You can also swim in the swimming pool and lay on one of the hammocks. So if you have spare time this would be a nice area to chill.

We got here before 8 and there were security guys who won’t let us in because the tickets office wasn’t open yet. So come at 8 - there might be tour groups coming.

The good here is a bit expensive so better come after having food somewhere else

Good for a hike and waterfall jump, not great for the price
Jun 2020
Back when this place was 50k VND, it was an okay value, but with the 100k entrance price there are better sights around Nha Trang. The hike is nice, but waterfalls are nothing special to look at or photograph. Good for jumping into water though.

A pleasant excursion from the tourist, bustling hub of Nha Trang...
Mar 2020 • Family
When I reached the rocks here today, I realized that I had been here before about thirty five years previous, when, as a relatively young(er) man, I hopped from rock to rock with reckless exuberance.
Now, unfortunately, as a septuagenarian, I found it a touch trickier!
We (mum, dad and 9 year old daughter) went there by motorbike, and the journey (on the main Saigon to Hanoi carriageway) is surprisingly pleasant with lovely vistas of the bay, and it took maybe forty minutes from Nha Trang, the turn-off to the waterfall being easy to find.
Parked up, it costs 100,000 Dong to enter, and there is about a kilometre of pleasant shaded walk (and photo shots) to get to the beginning of the falls, which are divided into three separates small 'lakes', where you can swim and refresh yourself in the gelid water.
We only did the first two.
As mentioned it maybe a tough climb for some, but it's worth it. Available, too, are several drink stops, a restaurant with a swimming pool, and an area where you can canoe, pedalo, bouncy water castle (included in the admittance price)..whatever turns you on.
Worth going?
Yes.....

Well presented tourist resort
Feb 2020 • Couples
We went here on a scooter it was very easy to find as it’s sign posted on the motorway. If you do not like the idea of a scooter there is a bus that takes you there or you can do a half day trip via a tour operator.

It a very well presented tourist resort and well worth a visit. Some great places to take photos and lots to do, canoeing, hiking and of course cliff jumping. I think cliff jumping is a bit of an exaggeration as it not very high at all, but its fun.
Getting to the 3rd lake is a bit of fun, I am 56 and my partner is 62 and not fit at all but he enjoyed the challenge. Make sure you wear good trainers, that is so important and bring a towel, water, food and any other drink you can get there, it’s not expensive.

What we did was go up through the rocks and then came down using the exit for going to higher ground if it rains which was easier than clambering back down over the rocks. The exit is at the 3 rd lake behind where you jump.

Worth a visit
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were very lucky to be here when it wasn't busy, we took the non-trekking way to the base of the falls then negotiated the boulders on the climb up to the 3 different lakes. It's not an easy climb, but just about do-able for a slightly overweight 50 year old woman with a dodgy leg and a lot of stubborn determination 😃 Saw lots of butterflies and a few lizards 🦋🦎
