2. How is Gieng Troi Da Nang unique?

This mysterious Da Nang Gieng Troi was formed by the impact of nature. In fact, this is just a waterfall pouring down from the upstream stream, but local people often call it Gieng Troi. Unlike many attractions in Da Nang, this place still retains the wild beauty of nature.

With its majestic landscape, this place has become an ideal destination for tourists who love adventure and exploration. Not only for check-in and sightseeing, Da Nang Sky Well is also an attractive entertainment destination such as trekking, camping, mountain climbing, stream bathing and countless other interesting activities.

Da Nang Gieng Troi not only impresses with its majestic waterfall but also with its deep and wide stream. However, there are still many shallow sections here for tourists who do not know how to swim. You just need to wade through the stream to continue your journey of discovering the wonderful nature ahead.

The interesting thing about coming here is that you can sit right in the middle of the waterfall to feel the cool water flowing down from the waterfall, eliminating all the fatigue and worries of daily life.

The journey to discover Da Nang Gieng Troi is relatively strenuous and tiring. However, in return, Gieng Troi will welcome you with a beautiful, unspoiled natural scenery that is unparalleled. Seeing the cool green lake halfway up the mountain, listening to the sound of the stream flowing like the melodious music of the mountains and forests is sure to make you feel relaxed, refreshed and full of vitality.
