Once to Măng Đen (Kon Tum province), many times more one wishes to come again due to its natural beauty of overlapping hills and mountains, immense pine-forest on 1,200m – 1,300m above the sea-level. The Đắk Sơ Nghé river through the district center Kon Plông and streams make the area an ideal tourism destination.

There’s a village located on an islet in the lake and it’s inhabited by ethnic minority groups: Mơ Năm, Ca Rong, H’re... in stilt-houses leaning against terrace fields or tea-farm. A little further is the village communal house or nhà rông where from echoes of gongs, the emotions of the locals are sometimes clearly heard.
From Măng Đen, on the national road 24 to the coastal area there are 70km bordering Quảng Ngãi, homeland of Ấn mountain and Trà river and the immense rice-field.
Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT) and local authorities have planned Măng Đen tourism complex, calling for investment to turn it into an eco-tourism in the future, worthy to be a starting-point of the central highlands’ green road.
