HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Post Corporation (Vietnam Post) has issued a set of stamps featuring four famous waterfalls selected from the most beautiful across the country.
The four-stamp collection themed Thác Nước Việt Nam (Vietnamese Waterfalls) was launched this week to promote the image of Việt Nam, the people and scenic landscapes.
Designed by painter Nguyễn Đức Lân and measuring 43x32mm, the collection depicts the four waterfalls of Dải Yếm in the northern province of Sơn La, Mây in the central province of Thanh Hóa, Pongour in the Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng and Suối Tranh in the southern province of Kiên Giang.
Among them, Dải Yếm is at its most beautiful in Mộc Châu Plateau, Sơn La Province's Mộc Châu District. It is associated with the legend of love between a young man and woman in the mountainous region. During rainy seasons, strong flows of water make up nine levels of the waterfall, creating a breathtaking view. It has for a long time been an unforgettable destination for visitors to Mộc Châu Plateau.

Meanwhile, Mây Waterfall boasts pristine scenery with crystal clear waters. The over-100m waterfall is a charming place in Thạch Lâm Commune of Thanh Hóa’s Thạch Thành District. It is created from part of the northern Trường Sơn karst mountain system.
Pongour Waterfall in Tân Hội Commune of Đức Trọng District, about 50km to the south of Đà Lạt City, Lâm Đồng Province, is called the “seven-level waterfall” since its water flows down from seven layers of rock. Thanks to its untouched beauty, Pongour is dubbed "Nam Thiên Đệ Nhất Thác” (The Best Waterfall in the South) and has become one of the must-visit places in Đà Lạt.
Suối Tranh Waterfall in Dương Tơ Commune of Kiên Giang's island district of Phú Quốc Province originates from small streams on Hàm Ninh Mountain. Its clear water flows through rocks and cliffs to form a stunning landscape in the forest.
Vietnam Post has also designed four stamping blocks to mark the first release date of the collection with the aim to diversify the products of stamps for customers and collectors.
The new stamp set "Vietnamese Waterfalls" is provided on the postal network from August 15, 2022, to June 30, 2024. — VNS
