The name of Love Falls originates from a local legend. In the past, Fairies often went down the waterfall for bathing. At one time, while bathing, the seventh Fairy suddenly discovered a woodcutter cooking rice beside the Golden Stream. While waiting for the rice to be cooked, he whistled the bamboo flute. At another time, because she was so absorbed in listening to his flute, she forgot to return to Heaven. When the night falls, because she was able to withstand the cold weather in the jungle, she approached his fires for warming herself. That night, next to the flickering fire, the young man played the flute to perform passionate love songs. In the next morning, when the sun shone through the tops of trees, she hurried to go to Heaven. On the following days, she continued to come here to hear his flute. Unfortunately, this secret was discovered by the goddess; consequently, she was not allowed to go down Love Falls. She dreadfully missed him and came to the Sky Gate to look down the waterfall waiting for his flute’s sound. Not seeing him, she was sad in heart and eventually changed into a yellow bird flying around the mountain and called O Quy Ho.
