HCM CITY — A hidden cave under the Voi Waterfall (Elephant Falls), called Hang Gió (Wind Cave), is located in the Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng.
The waterfall in Lâm Đồng Province’s Lâm Hà District, only 25km from Đà Lạt City, is one of the most beautiful in the Highlands. It is part of Cam Ly Stream and is more than 30m high and 15m wide.
The name of the waterfall is associated with a tragic love story. According to legend, a couple promised to be together, but the man later joined the army to fight invaders and died in battle.
The women visited the mountain where they had made their promise to one another and sang a sorrowful song until she died. A herd of elephants nearby heard her singing for a long time and they turned to stone. Suddenly there was a loud explosion that split the mountain into two, and water rushed off it.
During weekends, the Elephant Waterfalls site is very popular. The entrance fee is VNĐ20,000 (US$0.9). Near the foot of the falls, authorities have placed a walkway so that visitors can take photos and enjoy the view. — VNS
