Ο καταρράκτης Dray Nur

Ο καταρράκτης Dray Nur βρίσκεται στο χωριό Kuop περίπου 25χλμ νότια της πόλης Buon Ma Thuot. Ο καταρράκτης έχει μήκος 250 μέτρα και ύψος 30 μέτρα. Είναι ο πιο όμορφος και ο μεγαλύτερος από τους τρεις καταρράκτες στον ποταμό Serepok. Από μακριά, ο καταρράκτης Dray Nur προσφέρει ένα πανοραμικό θέαμα.

Ο καταρράκτης αποτελείται από τρία επίπεδα που δημιουργούν τρεις λίμνες. Μπορείτε να κολυμπήσει κανείς στην πρώτη λίμνη διότι το νερό είναι ρηχό, ενώ στη δεύτερη λίμνη, πρέπει να είναι προσεκτικός διότι τα βράχια είναι πολύ αιχμηρά. Στην τρίτη λίμνη το νερό είναι αρκετά βαθύ, που φθάνει τα 8 με 10 μέτρα. Από αυτή τη λίμνη περπατώντας κατά μήκος του βράχου, μπορείτε να μπείτε σε μια σπηλιά.


Road riding Vietnam? I pictured rutted dirt roads with the occasional patchy bit of paved road but this place is a road riding mecca, with stunning ocean views along the coast highway, and endless corners as you wind through the highlands for days on end with Vietnam Motorbike Tours.

And it is a good morning … a great night’s sleep in a very comfortable hotel on the coast in Nha Trang. One thing that kept amazing us was the quality of the hotels in each town and how cheap they were. Your dollar definitely goes a long way with Vietnam Motorbike Tours.

Our motley crew saddles up and we head inland. Today’s destination? Dalat. A beautiful Vietnam town that is the gateway to the central highlands. The plan is to get us off the beaten track as much as possible, and it happens pretty quickly with the narrowest bridge I have ever ridden across. The adventure with Vietnam Motorbike Tours could start quickly today. Our guide says there was a major landslide in the mountains overnight and traffic is banked up for miles. But apparently roads get fixed very quickly here and overnight they have already cleared the road and traffic is flowing again.

All the photos and films about Vietnam led me to believe the whole country was flat as a pancake and covered in rice paddies. That tends to be the case along the coastline, but once you head inland the country is dominated by mountain ranges. Along with the change in terrain comes a change in climate too and hot humid conditions of the coast disappear as we climb into the foothills and enjoy cool air along with the views. I’m impressed but the guides say I ain’t seen nothing yet. Everyone loved our Vietnam Motorbike Tours guides. Cheeky, fun, informative. And good cooks too. If there wasn’t a decent restaurant stop for lunch we would pull up somewhere in a scenic shady spot and they would cook up a storm. Nice one guys!

Everyone loved the Vietnam Motorbike Tours bikes too. There are tough size restrictions in Vietnam but we all agreed you would probably get into trouble fast with too much power on these roads.
Vietnam has come a long way since being ravaged by the Vietnam War… or the American was as it’s known here. As we get further into the mountains the roads are still paved and in great condition. And even when we get into remote areas later on the roads are still fine. I asked the tour guys if they had thought about getting adventure bikes but it seems the government has done such a good job of paving all the roads that there’s no point. I asked about Vietnam dirt riding and they said there is a bit of dirt riding in the far north but most of it is either illegal or riding in questionable areas so they have stuck with the road riding. And I can see why with Vietnam Motorbike Tours. Even though I’m a dirt rider at heart this is a rider’s paradise. Dalat, gateway to the Vietnam highlands. Beautiful temples, crisp mountain air, and a curious blend of Vietnamese culture and its French colonial past. The French colonialists made this their retreat from the hot coastal areas, the Americans did the same thing during the war.

The Vietnam temples are inspiring, but before we get too spiritual we remember there’s a pile of cold beer waiting for us at the hotel so it’s helmets on a final time. Tonight we get a real slice of French colonial history… one of the old style hotels and its old world charm. Now where’s that beer? Upper crust adventure at its best, Vietnam Motorbike Tours.
