Ban Gioc Waterfall is one of Vietnam’s most impressive natural sights. Located in the northeastern province of Cao Bang, the falls are 30 metres high and 300 metres across, making Ban Gioc the widest (but not the highest) waterfall in the country.
The falls occur on the Quay Son River, a beautiful jade-blue body of water flowing from China through a pastoral landscape of rice fields and bamboo groves surrounded by limestone pinnacles.

It is best to visit during summer time from May to September when it rains sometimes so you can see a big waterfall and you can swim in its cool water. It is also nice to visit from October to December, but the falls is not as big as other months and it can be too cold to swim.
