Tourists pose for
pictures before touring Da Riam reservoir.
Every day in the morning
and late afternoon, ethnic boys and girls come to swim
in the reservoir of Da Riam Stream in Lam Dong Province
or sit by the banks to enjoy fresh air and breezes.
Few tourists have known
about the 400-hectare reservoir, built in Bao Thuan
Commune to water coffee and tea trees on hills and in
valleys as well as agricultural farms in other parts
of Di Linh District of the Central Highlands province.
Official K’Broi of the
Di Linh People’s Committee told the Daily that the local
government was seeking investors to develop tourism
projects to make the most of the reservoir. Despite
the absence of tour operators and tourism services there,
you can hire a boat to travel around to admire the beauty
of the flooded valley of the Da Riam Stream and its
vicinity at not more than VND 50,000 per person.
The attractions you can
see are old trees of different shapes, plants in blossoms
on hills, flocks of storks skimming over the green paddy
fields and the reservoir to look for food, and ethnic
people working in hilly farms. On top of that, you can
enjoy an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity when touring
one and a half hours around the reservoir.
You can travel by high-standard
coach from Ho Chi Minh City through more than 200 kilometres
to the town of Di Linh and then further over five kilometres
to Da Riam reservoir. (SGT)
