1. Krong Nô Cave
Different from the limestone cave sytems discovered in Vietnam which have become world heritages such as Phong Nha – Ke Bang (Quang Binh), Ha Long Bay (Quang Ninh), Tam Coc – Bich Dong – Trang An (Ninh Binh), volcanic caves are more rare, not only in Vietnam but also in the world, which has many differences in the flow architecture.
Located in the region of Dray Sap Forest and the national tourism area including two landscapes of Dray Sap waterfall and Gia Long waterfall in Krong No district, the Chu B’Luck volcanic cave system includes 12 main caves with typical structures which shape of the basalt surface is the result of volcanic eruption activities 3,700 years ago. Most of the Chu B’Luck volcanic caves are tubular, in some caves there are a number of intersections and some of them intersect with each other to form the circles. The presence of the lava mold above and inside the cave proved that this place was a forest millions of years ago. After the volcano erupted, lava flowed and exposed to the air, then cooled down and froze, left beautiful patterns on the walls of the cave.
Among them, C7 cave is the largest volcanic one in Southeast Asia with a length of 1,066.5m, width of thousands of meters.
2. Three-story Waterfall
With a special terrain, the stream flows here through three successive rock layers of about 40m long before reaching the main stream below: water from the rocks falls at height of more than 1.5m to form the first-story of waterfall, after weaving between the adjacent rocks stretching about 20 meters, it pours down at a height of about 2 meters to form the second waterfall floor, the stream from here has been quite wide crawling through the rocks and then suddenly collapses from a height of 20m to form the main waterfall of the three-story waterfall with white bubbles.
Right from afar, the echoes of the waterfall rang in the mountains and forests is like an interesting invitation, and when approaches to the waterfall, a thick mist covering the waterfall makes us feel that the nature here is so magical and wild.
3. Dray Sap Waterfall
This is the most beautiful and majestic waterfall in the Central Highland with the height of 50m and the length of 100m. Not only attracts tourists by the majesty of the waterfall but also by a romantic love story about a lady named H ‘mi. This beautiful girl was swallowed by a monster while sitting and talking to her lover. After that, she turned into giant pillars of fog, and her lover turned into a big tree, plunged deep into the earth to reach the sky as if he wanted to be with the girl he loved.
4. Ta Dung Nature Reserve
Ta Dung Nature Reserve is like a “Sleeping Fairy” in the southwest of Dak Nong. The hilltop emerging on the lake has created a very interesting natural beauty. Amidst the thousands of hectares of clear blue water, 36 large and small islands emerge, make people think it is like a “miniature Ha Long Bay” in the middle of the Central Highland. This place has many beautiful scenes such as: Ta Dung peak with the height of 1.982m above sea level, ten-meter high waterfalls located deep in the primeval forests, and the unique cultural beauty of ethnic minorities.
