Where is Mang Den?
Mang Den is a small village in Kon Plong district, Kon Tum province. This place has become a remarkable tourist destination on the mountain tourism map. Mang Den village has an altitude of up to 1200m above sea level. Not only that, this place is also a plateau in the Truong Son range, so it has a temperate mountainous climate, cool and foggy all year round. That is why it is likened to a “miniature Da Lat”.
A quiet town for those looking for a peaceful place to relax
For those who are passionate about the vast forests, and poetic hills with subtle features and do not like crowded places, Mang Den is the ideal place to visit. Although the tourism industry here is not as developed as Da Lat, Gia Lai, or Dak Lak but a lot of tourists love it because the village still retains its wild, quiet appearance through the seasons. From the city center, visitors can drive along the tens of kilometers long road along Mang Den village, to experience the feeling of crossing the roads and admire the green valley and the fog covering the way. Truly, there is really no place like Mang Den.
Not only the quiet roads, but the villages of the ethnic people in the valleys, sloping hills, or vast and immense fields here also bring visitors a feeling of peace. Mang Den is also famous for its gentle waterfalls. When visitors come here, they will immerse themselves in the life of the local people. They will get to enjoy the holidays to recharge their spirits. This beauty always surprises those who come here for the first time, if they can watch the sunset down the highway or the village with thatched roofs, then they just want to stay in Mang Den forever.
