Ban Gioc Waterfall- Vietnam


A thirty meter high Ban Gioc Waterfall, is the largest one in Vietnam. It ranks as the fourth largest waterfall along the border after Iguazu, Victoria, and Niagara Falls. It is located in Cao Bang Province near the Sino-Vietnamese border. Endemic species of plants were rediscovered recently in the gorge, and also treasures of bandits in the cliff-side caves.

The flowing water from Quy Xuan River creates mist in the air that makes the waterfall's temperature remarkably cool. French people started building cottages during the 1920's for relaxing, and to enjoy the magnificent beauty of nature's gift to the Vietnamese people. "How lucky a country to have such a marvelous gift" eh?

As you can see, the sight depicts a palpable sense of beauty mixed with village atmosphere that makes the waterfall truly remarkable." Does that rhyme?"
