Experience this totally different ‘ jungle to sea ‘adventures.
Nha Trang adventures’ day trip to the waterfalls, and monkey island is one to remember. It is an absolute stand out day. Cruising along the snaking ocean road, through the mountains with breathtaking views of the sparkling ocean, and the islands dotted beyond like diamonds is only the start. We are soon off road, and bumping our way towards the kick off point for the falls. We set off on foot, amongst lush greenery and a bubbling stream at an easy pace. A good idea to have some sneakers on and not flip flops, for as we head further up the gorge, you will be clambering over boulders and jumping over rushing water. The stroll in the park ends after a kilometer or so at a picturesque area, with the crystal clear mountain river rushing over the boulder strewn pass. From here on we scramble over slabs of rock, and through the jungle as we push onto the waterfalls. Swim in the cool water straight off the mountains, and sun yourself in a postcard setting. Then move onto Monkey island. A 15 minute scenic boat ride, delivers you to a sandy strip of beach, where you will encounter very naughty monkeys. Take your time here, relax and meander through the colorful gardens with cascading flowers of many varieties before your encounter with the pesky monkeys. Grab a bag of peanuts, hold on tight to them and you will soon have their little hands stretching out for a feed. Check out the circus with very clever dogs, and monkeys doing ‘chin ups’ and other tricks before we cruise back to the mainland and drop you home to your hotel by 3pm.
Our Guests say about this tour:
We did the Waterfall and Monkey Island tour with our tour guide Captain Thao who was the best guide I have come across. He is a bit of a larrikin, with an easy laugh and companionable chit chat. His local knowledge was fantastic and we learnt a lot from him on this tour. He encouraged me when climbing the mountain to the waterfall and I have to admit that without his patience I probably would not have made it.
But I am so glad that I did! The level 3 pool is beyond amazing, floating in a cool clear pool in the middle of the jungle was a once in a life time experience.
We had lunch at a local restaurant consisting of mainly fresh seafood and it was delicious.
Then over to Monkey Island with the most gorgeous monkeys around.
The drive back to Nha Trang along the ocean road was picturesque with a couple of stops along the way for photo opportunities.
We had so much fun on this tour, I can’t recommend it highly enough.
