THUA THIEN – HUE – Ziplining over the 400m high Do Quyen waterfall is an experience for adventure sports lovers, newly exploited earlier this year in Bach Ma National Park.
Do Quyen Waterfall in Bach Ma National Park is the source of one of two main river branches, forming the poetic Perfume River of Hue.

Mr. Le Luu Dung first experienced canyoning activities at Do Quyen waterfall on August 10, during a survey trip to build a combined tour with Bach Ma National Park. Canyoning, often called canyoning tour, is an outdoor adventure activity that combines cliff swinging and canyoning activities, using techniques such as walking, overcoming rough terrain, and jumping. by going into the water, swinging down the waterfall and swimming.
Mr. Dung’s group followed Bach Ma street from Phu Loc town to Bach Ma tourist area. From the Do Quyen trail parking lot, the group followed the sign for about 1.5 km, taking about 30 minutes to reach the top of the waterfall.
The waterfall is about one kilometer from the road and about two kilometers from the tourist area.
Standing on the top of the mountain, you can take in the endless views of nature, endless mountains and forests of Bach Ma National Park. This is also the starting point of the canyoning experience.
Some requirements for participants in the canyoning experience are to have good physical strength, not suffer from bone and joint diseases, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, and not be afraid of heights.
Participants will wear specialized equipment such as safety belts, helmets, gloves and start going from the top to the bottom of the waterfall using a high-quality rope swing system, Mr. Dung said.
To ensure safety, participants need to follow the basic principles of rope technique previously instructed by the safety team. At the same time, visitors need to focus on observing and following the instructions of the safety team during the process of rappelling over the waterfall, he added.
The process of swinging over the waterfall is not continuous, there are stops to regain strength. The stops are flat surfaces halfway up the waterfall, with an area large enough to stand or sit. Do not remove swing ropes and specialized equipment during breaks to ensure safety.
According to Mr. Dung, “canyoning is an adventurous outdoor sports activity but the risk is almost zero when participants are always connected to a life-line wire controlled by a team of safety assistants.” The safety team has also been trained in rope rescue techniques in emergencies according to the standards of the American Caving Association.
For Mr. Dung personally, conquering Do Quyen waterfall is a unique and memorable experience. “Admiring the scenery while floating halfway up the cliff brings a feeling of excitement and excitement, different from standing and admiring the scenery from the top of a flat waterfall,” he said.
