Dray Sap is one of the most mesmerizing waterfalls which is located on the Serepok river, beside Gia Long and Dray Nur waterfalls.
This name is derived from a legend of a love story between a boy and a girl who lived in this area. Every day, H'Mi - the name of the girl - used to go to the milpa with her lover. One day, while resting on a flat stone, they saw a monster, whose head was as big as a mountain, eyes like bronze urns. Its body was glittery with silvery scales. Suddenly, the monster dived down from the sky and his trunk plunged into the ground, stirring up a colossal column of water. The monster spread out its large wings, flew around several times, making a fierce rain then flew away. In terrible shock, the girl disappeared into the mist. The boy was transformed into a big stump, whose roots stuck into the rock. This place was then called the Dray Sap, or Misty Waterfall.
According to Ede ethnic group, Dray Sap means “smoke waterfall," because the water flows down from above in such a strong force that creates smoke. The best time to visit Dray Sap waterfall is from December to March.
