Vuc Hom Waterfall is located in Vinh Xuan village, An Linh Commune, Tuy An District, Phu Yen, with a total area of about 1 hectare. This place has a wild and breathtaking landscape with tall and large basalt columns. There are also rows of stones stacked on top of each other like the gorgeous Da Dia Reef in Phu Yen. Water from above pours into the stream below at a height of 20m, creating clouds of white foam.

The rays of sunlight intermingled in the middle of the water create shimmering rainbow colors, mixed with the green of mountains and forests. The cool water can be a perfect choice for quick swimming on a hot summer day, but visitors are also advised to bring a life jacket for safety.

At the foot of the waterfall is a large, crystal clear lake surrounded by large cliffs and green forest canopy making a unique and charming landscape painting of nature.

The best moment to visit Vuc Hom is around the last months of the year, including November, December, January, and February, since the weather in Phu Yen is cool and comfortable, along with the fresh atmosphere. If you arrive here during the dry season, when the waterfall dries up, the scenery will be less beautiful and attractive. Before traveling here, remember to prepare clean clothes, hats, bathing suits, sunscreen creams, insect repellents, and bottled water to drink during your trip.

Vuc Hom Waterfall is an ideal destination for a camping trip with your friends or family. Coming to this place, you will soon be overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the mountains, green forests, and lakes, and bathe yourself in the relaxing, cool water. You can also fish in the streams, cook Lam rice, grill chicken meat, and roast corn, and potatoes to eat while enjoying the natural beauty.
