 Buon Don beside Serepok river
BuonDon06    When speaking of DakLak , we must talk of elephants because DakLak is the native place of elephants. Ban Don is the home of wild elephant catchers and tamers whose fame was once echoed throughout the whole of Southeast Asia.

    Elephants have become a means for the natives to make a living. Traditional elephant races also take place here. Ban Don, also called Buon Don, in Laotian " Island village," is about 45 km North West of Buon Ma Thuot.

    Here the trade of wild elephant catching and taming and has made it completely different from any other village. The Edeh, the M'nong, and the Jarai villages in the past were very prosperous. The chiefs, including Y Thu (Khun Ja Nop) , Y Ky, and others were considered as kings, ruling over large areas of land. Now in Ban Don the customs and the cultural activities are a blend of many regions, countries, and eras.

Coming to Ban Don, you can ride elephants to sightsee the jungles, learn about elephant catching and taming, and various other activities.


phong canh ho Lak     Lac Lake, located 56 km from Buon Ma Thuot, is in the southern part of the province, close to National Highway 26. The great body of water hemmed between low mountains has been home to many kinds of wading birds for a long time.


    On the lakeside of Lac Lake is a magnificent palace owned by the last Nguyen King, Bao Dai. Standing on the balcony of the second floor, visitors get a panoramic view of the valley and the lake below. The remains the royal boat which was boarded for short cruises by the owner of the palace, Bao Dai, whenever he stayed in the palace. 

Jun Village

1      By the side of LAK LAKE is the sizeable the M'nong Rlam village of Jun with over 30 long houses. Different from the M'nong Gar who live in on-ground houses, the M'nong Rlam live in longhouses which are built on stilts like the Edeh. Their method of building long houses has remained simple and consists mainly of binding bamboo with thatch for the roof and walls, constructing support pillars and framing with wood using tenon-mortise technique. No metal nails are used. The houses are cool and well-ventilated, thanks to the building materials of thatch and bamboo. In the M'nong language, Jun means "jutting out." The village is named Jun because it juts out from green LAK LAKE. Coming to LAK LAKE, you may ride elephants around the village, row dugout canoes on the lake or enjoy the Gong show and drinking jar-wine with the villagers. You are welcome to stay overnight in the traditional longhouses at a budget price, allowing you to experience the local lifestyle of the village.
