LÂM ĐỒNG — A Polish tourist and a Vietnamese tour guide lost their lives while ziplining Hang Cọp waterfall in Xuân Thọ Commune, Đà Lạt City in the Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng.
Cwiakala Rafal, 33, and Nguyễn Quốc Khánh, 24, from Lâm Hà District of Lâm Đồng, fell victim to the ziplining adventure crossing the waterfall Thursday morning, reported the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on Thursday.
They were part of a group of eight tourists and two tour guides in an adventure tour of Hang Cọp (Tiger’s Cave) waterfall, which is about 50m in length with tough and dangerous terrain, provided by Giấc Mơ Vàng Company in Đà Lạt City.
Right after learning the information, the provincial rescue force reached the site to search the victims who were found in the afternoon the same day, according to the department.
A representative of the department revealed that the tour provider failed to show their licence to organise adventure tours or permit to serve foreign tourists. The two tour guides also have no licences.
Authorities are working to identify the cause of the accident.
On February 26, 2016, one male tourist and two women died after slipping and falling off a waterfall while visiting the Datanla tourist attraction in Đà Lạt. — VNS
