The name of this waterfall, Love, originates from a legendary love story that has been told to generations in this land. The story tells that long time ago, this waterfall was the bathing place of fairies from heaven. One day, a fairy was mesmerized by flute sound of a young boy near the fall, so she spent every night listening to his melodies. Not long time after, her parentscame to know the secret, and forbade her from coming back to the fall. The passionate fairy transformed herself to a bird so that she could live with her love forever. From then on, the name Love is born.

What to explore at Love Waterfall?

From far sight, the waterfall looks like a twinkling pyramid under the sun. With a height of about 100m, it starts from the peak of Fansipan Mountain and rush noisily into the Gold Stream like a never-ending song. Under the waterfall, the Gold Stream runs along with green grass plots and bamboo clusters, forming a poetic image. The stream flows the forest endlessly, to some places that only passionate people dare to venture into.

In order to go to the Love Waterfall, visitors have to go on a red dirt road running through the lush and vast bamboo forest and gentle beauty of rhododendron flowers with the diversity of colors such as red, white, yellow, which creates the particular scenery here. Along with this, you will hear the soothing sound of the rustling of trees in the wind and birdsongs.

Is a small waterfall captured by a small pond at the foot of Fansipan Mountain, 14 km from Sapa. Entrance fee is 45,000 dong and you will need to walk 1.1km to reach this waterfall. Right beside its archway road-entrance is a free staircase up to a Hoang Lien viewpoint, not the misleading inner semi-steps near the ticket counter that states “to Fansipan”. This high up viewpoint has a small shelter with a bell, and can encounter very strong wind up there. It is worth the while to visit the Silver Waterfall at 2km backward and Heaven Gates roadside viewpoint at another 1km forward when visiting this Love Waterfall, all for 150,000 dong roundtrip by motorbike taxi and takes 2½ hour in all. However, the waterfall at Cat Cat Village
