An 8m-high and 30m-wide cascade on the Song Be (Be River), the Tri An Falls are awesome in the late autumn, when the river's flow is at its greatest. Tri An Falls are in Dong Nai province, 36km from Bien Hoa and 68 km northeast of HCMC (via Thu Dau Mot). Further upstream is Tri An Reservoir (Ho Tri An), a large artificial lake fed from the foresi highlands around Dalat and created by the Tri An Dam. Completed in the early 1980s with Soviet assistance, the dam and its adjoining hydroelectric station supplies the bulk of HCMC's electric power.
