In the rainy season, water from the upstream flocks to the waterfalls, swirling white foam like the smile of a maiden, happy to welcome tourists. In the dry season, the amount of water is less, revealing giant rocks looking like loyal guards standing there to protect for the princess waterfalls. The sounds of water running through rocks combines with songs or birds creates an interesting symphony of the nature that lulls your soul into a vast space and makes you feel secured by the majestic nature of Da Lat.
