Canyoning is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rappelling), and swimming. Canyoning is frequently done in remote and rugged settings and often requires navigational, route-finding and other wilderness travel skills. Da Lat is the only place where canyoning is available now in Vietnam.
Although hiking down a canyon that is non-technical, (canyon hiking) is often referred to as canyoning, the terms canyoning and canyoning are more often associated with technical descents — those that require abseils (rappels) and rope-work, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, and/or technical swims.
