Ba Ho Waterfalls is one of Nha Trang’s must-visit attractions, comprised of three natural waterfalls that ends with a clear lake surrounded by a dense rainforest. Situated about 20 kilometres north of Nha Trang, the waterfalls are a favourite spot for hiking, swimming, picnics, and fishing.
The waterfalls have been left in their natural state, for the most part, with several arrow pointers and cement steps set along the more challenging routes. Locally known as Suoi Ba Ho (three-pool stream in Vietnamese), the entrance fee to the waterfalls is priced at VND 20,000 per person.
From the entrance, it is a 30-minute walk through the foliage to the first waterfall before it becomes a challenging climb over large rocks to reach the second and third waterfalls. Make sure you are reasonably fit, wear proper shoes, and/or bring extra clothes before making your way here.
How to get there
Ba Ho Waterfalls is a 40-minute drive from Nha Trang City, with picturesque stretches of coastlines and paddy fields throughout the journey. There are also several stalls set up by the roadside, where you can purchase beers, soft drinks, and local snacks. While renting a motorcycle is possible, we advise against travelling solo as flat tyres are common mishaps due to the rather bumpy roads along the way.
Alternatively, you can opt for a full-day tour from Nha Trang City, where an English-speaking guide takes you to prominent attractions in northern Nha Trang, including Ba Ho Waterfalls, Monkey Island, and Doc Let Beach. Great for adventurous travellers and nature lovers, Ba Ho Waterfalls makes for a tranquil retreat away from Nha Trang city centre.
