The legend story of Tiger Cave waterfall in Da Lat
In 1950, the place was a deep forest with plenty of wild animals, of which the fiercest animals are tigers “Lords of forest”. There was a big tiger which often lived in a cave close to the fall. At that time a local hunter tried to kill the tiger, but it didn’t die; it just got injured in one leg so it became fiercer and fiercer, screaming destroying the surrounding area and then it went away from the cave. Since then, people gave the name Tiger to the waterfall. At the flower garden of the site, tourists can see a big statue of a tiger and a family of tiger around a big mushroom. We can also see a statue of a brave man in a proud posture which reminds us of the then hunter.
The waterfall has 25m in height and 10m in width. At the foot of the waterfall, the flow of water falls down strongly, making the dense mist covering the area. The white water then follows the rocks and flows into the primitive forest.
Bus is considered as the cheapest and most convenient transportation means for long distances. Travelling by bus is much easier than before since the roads and the bus system both are improved and well-managed.
