Legends of Datanla Dalat waterfall
Datanla is the place where the hero K’Lang and the mountain girl Hobiang met. Here, Lang fought with wild animals including 2 cobras, 7 wolves, and 2 foxes.
The legends of the ethnic minorities also clearly record that battle: “The trees fell, the wind raged strongly, the fighting took place extremely fiercely.
Taking advantage of the time when the two snakes stuck their tongues out, Lang took a knife to cut off the snake’s two forked tongues and then shot at the wolves and foxes with 9 arrows, causing them to run away …”.
The felled forest creates deep holes, one of which is the abyss of Death at the foot of the waterfall. Since then, the Datanla waterfall is the dating place of couples and later created the legend of the legendary Lang Biang Mountain.
Another Legend of the locals has it that Datanla is also a waterfall where fairies often went to bathe because of its pure water, covered by many layers of leaves.
Because they did not know that there was water under the leaves, when they discovered the waterfall, the ethnic minorities named it “Da Tam Nha” which means “under the leaves there is water”. Later, when the French and Kinh set foot on this lyrical plateau, the sound changed to Datina and then Datanla.
