Hi hivers, how are you today?
Me and my friends have just had a trip to discover May Treo waterfall deep in the tropical rain forest of Hoa Bac mountain - Da Nang. It was truly a journey full of hardships and challenges. We are all very proud and satisfied that we did. It was a beautiful waterfall and the journey was amazing. Let's explore this waterfall through video and photos in this post.
First let me introduce about May Treo waterfall. May Treo is a tall waterfall. I have not found the origin of its name, but I think, because it looks like a hanging cloud (May Treo means hanging cloud). It is a waterfall located deep in the primeval forest in Hoa Ninh and Hoa Bac communes of Hoa Vang district, Da Nang. Covered by primeval forest and craggy cliffs, it is a very difficult waterfall to reach. Therefore, it is considered as one of the most unspoiled waterfalls in Da Nang.
We are a group of friends from many different countries who decided to have a trip to explore this waterfall. We rode motorbikes out of Da Nang city center around 10am, after 45 minutes of driving, we arrived at the foot of Mui Trau mountain. Note that currently the La Son - Tuy Loan highway has banned motorbikes, so we had to take the DT601 road. We then left our motorbikes at a worker's house at the foot of the mountain and started hiking to the falls.
The hike there is really arduous and challenging. It took us a total of 5 hours to hike to the waterfall from the parking spot. During our hike, we had to wade through fast-moving water, hike in the woods, slide downhill and climb high cliffs. I must say, without the support of our strong foreign friends (Ralph, Dimitri and Danilas), we would not have made it because of the fast currents. Besides that, we got lost once even though one member of our group had been there before. The trail there was not clear. My advice is that you have to be led by someone who has been to May Treo waterfall if you want to go there. I'm sure you won't be able to find your own way.
After about 4 hours of hiking, we decided to camp at a very chill spot about 1 hour of hiking before the waterfall for a few reasons. The female members of our group were pretty exhausted, and we all needed to rest and recharge. Besides, there is no suitable camping ground at the waterfall because it is covered by cliffs and rocks. In addition, it is about to get dark and especially it is a very chill place for camping. We had a great time at the campsite enjoying the beautiful nature, swimming at a beautiful natural lake there, eating and resting and having a good night's sleep after a tough day of hiking.
On the next day, we woke up pretty early at 6am. Then we spent an hour to have breakfast, drink coffee and prepare the necessary things to continue another arduous journey to hike to the waterfall. Just like the hike of the day before, we also had to wade through fast-moving water, go into the forest and climb the cliffs. After about 1 hour, we arrived at May Treo waterfall. My first impression of May Treo waterfall was that I was really overwhelmed by its majestic beauty. We were all very excited. We spent hours there admiring the majestic beauty of the waterfall, going around exploring, climbing large rocks, swimming, sunbathing and taking pictures. Until midday, we were forced to go back to the campsite to rest and clean up to return home before dark.
May Treo waterfall is definitely one of my impressive destinations this year. I hope you like it as much as I do. Thank you for taking the time to read and watch my post. Have a nice day!
