BIKING 4days/3nights DA LAT to LAK lake to BUON MA THUOT
Highlight: Lak belongs to Lak District, Dak Lak Province. The mysterious land of Lak not only attracts tourists but also is considered as the symbol of Dak Lak's unique culture, which expresses in the sound of lithophones - a product of the traditional culture of the Central Highlands.
Ethnologist Condominas discovered the first ancient lithophones in Vietnam on February 5th, 1949 in Nduk Lieng Koran Lak Village. Ethnologist and musicologist Andre Saheffnet announced this instrument in Paris on June 21st, 1950. At present this set of lithophones is preserved in Louvre Museum (France).
