This place owns Nui Lon – one of the historical attractions attaced to the brave Ba To guerrilla team.
Many young people often do not stop at this point (where anti-French guerrillas Ba To set up the engineer workshop), go through a path to the east, across the forest to feel the wilderness of forests; hear the birds singing and the sound of flowing water.
Many people are grateful for the Konia trees with hundreds of years old or occasionally catch the wild flowers growing in the forest. Many visitors to the sea are also surprised when seeing Dau Rai trees with yellow resin that local people use to fill the boats and baskets.
It takes about a few tens of minutes along the stream to cross more than one kilometer. The Waterfall is about 24m high. In the summer, the sun is shining into the stream as white as silver.
Above the path leading up to the head of the waterfall is the rocks and clear water. Tourists stop walking down the rock before dropping into the cool water. Many people take the cords to tie down with cans of beer and drop into the stream for about 10 minutes then bring up to feel the cool water in.
Also by the wild stream, there is no ticket and no service, so visitors to this place must bring their own food and drink. After a cool bath, enjoying food with relatives, friends, visitors can hammock by the stream to take a short break.
In the afternoon, on the way back, visitors feel more clearly the wilderness of streams and mountains and usually, everyone wants to come back.
