Characteristics

For thousands of years, the Ban Gioc Waterfall (Detian Falls) has eroded its ridge and slowly moved upstream. Nowadays, most of the time it appears to be two waterfalls, but when the river swells due to summer rains, one waterfall can form again.

In Vietnamese, two waterfalls are considered to be two parts of the same waterfall with the only name Ban Gic. The two parts are thác chính (Main waterfall) and thác phụ (Subordinate waterfall). It is sometimes mentioned in Chinese texts that both waterfalls from Detian are on the Chinese side.
