Photograph of the week: The Pongua Waterfall, Da Lat, Vietnam

The Pongua Waterfall, also known as the Step Waterfall, is located in a mountain range about 50 kilometres from Da Lat in Vietnam. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful and magnificent falls in the Lam Dong province. During the dry season, the river that feeds the waterfall almost dries out. This allows visitors to climb the “steps” to the top of the waterfall. Pongua Waterfall, Da Lat, Vietnam Thank you to Mari Bankova of Lifeswanderlust/ for permission to share the photograph.
