Canyoning In Dalat
On March 14, I had my first Canyoning experience at Datanla Waterfall in Dalat, Vietnam with Viet Challenge Tours. The experience was absolutely liberating. There were certain parts in the journey when I felt a bit nervous, mostly during the water sliding and “washing machine” experience. I no longer care to know what it’s like to be in a washing machine during the rinse cycle, because I had experienced it on that day and it was out of control. I’m not a great swimmer and thus the feeling of water over powering me has always left me feeling a bit anxious despite the presence of a life vest. There were times when I wanted to back out, but I knew in the end I would regret not pushing myself towards the goal of conquering my fear. I hope by the end of this trip I will be able to add “strong swimmer” to my resume…please don’t hold me to it. LOL
The tour was $45 and it included a delicious lunch and our guides were super friendly and at no time did I feel rushed, even though it took a little longer to jump off of the cliff (7m/22ft high) into a deep lake. 🙂 I’ve created a video highlighting a few of my favorite photos and video clips from the adventure. Thanks again Viet Challenge for an experience that I will never forget.
I hope you enjoy the video!
Lots of love,
