With an altitude of 1,879m above sea level, Brah Yang is the highest mountain in Di Linh (Lam Dong). It is surrounded by pristine forests, overlapping rocky mountains, clear water ravines, and many fascinating legends of the K’Ho people.

Mull K’Vang, a veteran tour guide born and raised in Di Linh, said that this is a sacred mountain, belonging to a mountain of god. Brah is the name of a K’Ho man, and Yang means god. One day, a fairy came from the mountain to bathe in the stream and steal his fish. When caught red-handed, she promised to pay anything but he refused any compensation and just requested her to stay on the mountain. Since then, the mountain is named Brah Yang.

This mountain is attractive to young people because it is a new and challenging trekking route. At times, the backpackers have to climb over the towering rock mounds, the steep cliffs clinging to tens of meters long roots of hundreds of years old trees.

Viewing from the top of the mountain, visitors feel the majesty of Brah Yang with the vast sky above and small, vague and fanciful things down appearing in the pale yellow color of the plateau.

Another destination in the land of the K’Ho is Thuy Nguyet Coc. From the main road, visitors have to cross a 3km long small path cleared by local people to reach the 3-storey waterfall cluster.

The sound of birds chirping and the mighty wind mix with the roar of the waterfall, creating a piece of attractive forest music that makes every effort in the trekking route worthy. Traveler Nguyen Tuong Lam (living in District 7, Ho Chi Minh City) confessed that this experience brought him much excitement and unforgettable memories.

In Di Linh, you can also visit the most majestic waterfall in the Central Highlands. Bobla means the tip of ivory, which is 20m wide and 50m high. Water comes from the high stream of Da Re-am, pouring down and forming white foam with a smoke screen, giving a sense of being lost in a fairyland.

The clear and cool water downstream attracts visitors to bathe, swim, catch fish, and light a barbecue next to the tent.

Viewing from distance, Bobla waterfall stands out against the green background of the mountains and forests, gardens of tea and coffee. The scenery is as beautiful as an ink painting. In the last months of the year, when wild sunflowers bloom on the hillsides, Bobla attracts a lot of tourists to camp and check in.
