Trekking to the waterfall
The trail leading to the actual waterfall consists of a cobblestone like path which can be navigated with ease. You will see a lot of locals picnicking on top of the giant boulders in the area and unfortunately they leave all their garbage behind, so expect to see a lot of containers, plastic bags, bottles, food items scattered around. The actual waterfall site itself will be crowded with many locals and tourists enjoying a good soak so it is best to arrive early if you want the waterfall to yourself.
Tranh Waterfall (Suoi Tranh)
The Tranh Waterfall is not the biggest or the most dramatic of its kind, but it does have its own charms and the surrounding forest is quite peaceful. The trail leading to the waterfall consists of a series of smaller waterfalls and streams. Look into the stream and you will see small fish and freshwater shrimps. In the forested area you will also see wild orchids, exotic mushrooms, and a variety of moss & lichens.
If your time on the island is limited we recommend that you visit this waterfall as it is only 10 minutes away from Duong Dong Town and can be combined with a visit to the picturesque Ham Ninh Village which is near by. The road that takes you to Tranh Waterfall will also take you to Sao Beach, Kem Beach, Coconut Prison, and An Thoi Town. At Tranh Waterfall the adventurous can get off the beaten path and explore the diverse fauna and flora and even a cave system (Bat Cave) which is located further up from the waterfall site.
*Keep an eye out for your belongings if you plan on swimming in and around the waterfall.
