Love Waterfall Sapa Story

The name Love Waterfall or the Golden Spring, originates from a love story between a fairy and a man who is good at fluting. According to local folklore, there was a young man named Ô Quy Hồ. He was the son of the God of the Mountain Range and he could play beautiful flute music. One day, his flute music accidentally attracted a fairy who often bathed in the waterfall. They fell in love with each other and met secretly at the waterfall.

When the Jade Emperor discovered their love, he forbade the fairy from returning to Earth. O Quy Ho could not accept it, so he transformed into a bird, endlessly calling for his lost love. Also, the fairy’s tears formed the streams that feed the waterfall from the heavens. From this story, the locals have called this waterfall Love Waterfall until now.
