Dak Nong cave system could become major destination

The Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) province of Dak Nong has discovered a cave system in the Serepok River basin in Krong No District that appears suitable for developing tourism.

With more than 10 caves of various sizes, it is 25km long and 5km wide and runs from the mouth of a volcano in Buon Choah Commune's Choah Village along the Serepok to D'ray Sap Waterfall.

It was created by the eruption of the volcano, according to researchers.

One of the caves, situated 2km from the waterfall, is 15m wide. Inside, after 50m it divides into two caves each nearly 300m long and 6m high.

The area where the cave system is located has primeval forests and waterfalls and is ideal for developing eco-tourism and cultural and adventure tourism. — VNS

He climbed a rickety ladder that buckled under his weight to reach his neigh-bour's house overlooking a creek. From there, he crossed into his old home.
