A foreign tourist and a Vietnamese tour guide have been found dead near the resort town of Da Lat in Vietnam's Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.

They have been named as Rafal Cwiakala, 33, from Poland, and Nguyen Quoc Khanh, 24, from Lam Ha District, Vietnam Plus newspaper reported Thursday.

They appear to have fallen from a rope as they were climbing down the waterfall in Tho Xuan Commune.

A search and rescue team was quickly dispatched to the scene after news of the incident surfaced. 

Their bodies were found around 600 meters downstream from the waterfall and have been taken to a local hospital.

An investigation is underway.

At the scene, the rope was still hanging from the top of the waterfall.

The cave, about 50 meters high, is 3 kilometers from National Highway 20.

A year ago, British tourists Christian Sloan, 24, Beth Anderson, 24, and Izzy Squire, 19, also died while climbing the waterfall at Datanla in Da Lat with an unauthorized tour guide. Datanla is a popular destination for adventure seekers in Da Lat.

Local authorities believe the men may have slipped, and police have arrested another tour guide.
