According to Be Thi Thu Hien, Deputy Director of the department, together with the Winter Tourism Festival, the event aims to attract both domestic and foreign visitors to explore the locality’s beauty. She noted that ethnic groups residing on Mau Son Mountain will show their cultural identities and introduce their specialties to tourists.
