Ban Gioc Waterfall is the largest and most stunning waterfall in Vietnam, is situated in the Cao Bang region in the country’s northeast. The water is 300 meters broad and 30 meters high as it descends three floors.
The water for the waterfall comes from the Quay Son River. This gorgeous river, which is emerald blue, originates in China and travels through a breathtaking scenery of limestone cliffs and rice paddies. Despite being very well-known on social media and having easy access by road, the Ban Gioc Waterfall is still not a popular tourist destination.
