The falls are characterised by thousands of islands and countless waterways, giving the area its name Si Phan Don or 'the 4,000 islands'.

The highest falls reach to 21 metres; the succession of rapids stretch 9.7 km of the river's length. The average discharge of the cataract is nearly 11,000 m3/s, with the highest flow on record at over 49,000 m3/s.
