You maybe ask what canyoning tour is?

Before answering this question, let’s clarify of some queries as follows:
Do you love the water? Are you an adrenalin junkie? Do you like adventure sports? If so, this adventure is for you.

Canyoning tour program in Dalat Vietnam is an activity that includes abseiling, sliding the water, jumping down the waterfalls, hiking and swimming. You’ll need some special skills for abseiling but it isn’t very difficult.

Professionally trained guides (Canyoning experts) will show you the ropes and prepare you for the journey down the waterfalls. Canyoning experts will train you on how to set the rope for the descent and how to abseil safely in an easy way. You will learn the basics of knot tying, harness wearing and abseiling techniques.



We pick you from your hotel and transfer to Datanla Waterfall, where you will navigate your way through a canyon and learn how to use the ropes, the basics of  knot tying, harness wearing, hardware and proper rappelling technique. During this unique journey of unforgettable experiences you will be accompanied by Canyoning professionals and expert guides.

When the guides are satisfied that you’ve got it down, you’ll head down your first rappel. It is an exciting 15 meter descent into the river below, right next to a 30-meter beautiful waterfall.

From here, we head further down the canyon to a spectacular Tyrolean Traverse (zip-line) that drops down and over a waterfall and the river.

Keep your legs exploring the forest and see with your own eyes all this wild nature’s wealth. Natural water sliding waiting for you at the next stop, (you can slide many times, slide in couple,  slide all together and slide forward or backward and even sexy water sliding…).

After the crazy water sliding, we take a walk along the river leading us to the biggest waterfall (25m) for some real abseiling through the water. This time canyoning experts will give you some good instructions and techniques for getting over the hardest waterfall.

And then you have two free jumps at a crazy free jumping cliff (11 metres or 7 metres). Of course, this time you will need some mental power for this challenge.

The last abseil is the most special one. It’s nick name: Washing Machine (16m), the waterfall spins you around, makes your body clean and pushes you out of the waterfall before hiking up to the highway.

A female tourist said about canyoning activities:

The group is waiting at the rocky face below me. I feel my heart racing faster and faster as a cool breeze runs over the back of my neck. It is now or over. I count 1….2…..3 and run along the rubble beneath my feet. I take a leap of faith. The world around me blurs as descend into emptiness
