About 40 kilometers from Buon Ma Thuot City, nestled in a crook of the Serepok River, and on the fringe of Yok Don National Park, Ban Don Village is proud of a popular eco-tourism area for both local and foreign tourists.
The hill tribe village is where visitors can see traditional tribal architecture and peaceful sceneries, and learn more about the customs of the capture and domestication of wild elephants.
In the daytime, tourists can head for an elephant ride around the village of Ede ethnic people, a boat cruise on an idyllic lake or a trek into forests for natural riddle exploration. When night comes, visitors can try ruou can (wine drunk through bamboo pipes from a jar) and join in dance parties with Ede and Mnong peoples.
