The Ma people, one local ethnic group in mountainous area of Dong Nai, called the waterfall Lieng Dur, which means the large majestic waterfalls.


In the full blossom, Mai waterfall is still more beautiful.

About 170 km away from HCMC, deep in the forests located in Dinh Quan, Mai waterfall stretches about 2 km surface area. It is formed from numerous streams, waterfall, and small rivers. This is one of the waterfalls remaining the wild, natural and rustic beauty in Dong Nai.

Mai waterfall has a majestic terrain but less rugged. Cliffs on both sides are on the up direction. In the heart of waterfall, rock chains are inlaid as if from the very open natural terrain, the debris of mountains falling into the river, creating a pile of rough stone, forming a whirlpool, dunes and waves, and the slots. Perhaps the most idyllic area would be above the top of waterfall. The water here is not deep, gentle flows smoothly between the rounded rocks. There is also a place opened with rugged rock and white water foam, which is an ideal place for tourists to camp and swimming in whirlpool.
