1. Where is Bao Dai Waterfall?

Bao Dai Waterfall is located in Ta Hine commune, Duc Trong district, Lam Dong province. About 60 km south of Da Lat city and about 272 km northeast of Ho Chi Minh city.

Located on a high hilltop, hidden in the middle of the deserted Ta Hine mountain forest. Bao Dai Waterfall is the most beautiful and tallest waterfall in Lam Dong.

2. How is Bao Dai waterfall unique?

Bao Dai Waterfall, also known as Jraiblian Waterfall, means high waterfall in the Churu language. True to its name, the waterfall has both poetic and mysterious beauty that can captivate anyone passing by because of its wild and impressive majesty.

In the past, around the time when King Bao Dai – the last monarch of the Nguyen Dynasty in Vietnam was still in office. He often organizes hunting activities in the highland area. And he chose Jraiblian waterfall as a place to rest and relax, so the waterfall was changed to the name of this king.

Bao Dai Waterfall is perhaps a miracle that nature has bestowed on this land. Coming 3 km from the waterfall, tourists can hear the resounding roar of the waterfall with the name of the last feudal monarch in Vietnam.

3. When is the best time to visit Bao Dai waterfall?

Because it is located in an area influenced by the tropical monsoon climate that varies with altitude, Lam Dong’s climate is cool all year round. The weather is divided into two distinct seasons: rainy season and dry season. You can come here at any time of the year, because the weather is not too harsh.

However, to have a complete and safe journey to explore the waterfall while participating in outdoor adventure activities, you should come in the dry season.

Dry season (from December to April of the following year): During this time, the weather is dry and sunny, suitable for relaxing, picnicking and participating in outdoor activities.

Rainy season (from May to November): at this time there is a lot of water at the waterfall and the road to the waterfall is dangerous. If you visit Bao Dai Waterfall during this time, check the weather before you plan to come to fully enjoy all the activities here.
