Once coming to Gia Lai, tourists will have chance to wander lots of stunning landscapes and enjoy the distinctly cool air of the Highlands. Hopefully, somewhere interesting in Gia Lai, you’ll find the rustic beauty, intimate sceneries and daily lifestyle of the friendly inhabitants.
1. T’ Nung Lake
Also known in Vietnamese as Bien Ho (Biển Hồ), T’Nung Lake is one of the lakes having the most natural and romantic beauty endowed by the Mother Nature. This lake was formed from a volcanic crater. If you stand and look away, it is hard to see the shore. Bien Ho is exampled like the eyes of Gia Lai people, in general, and Pleiku people, in particular. Standing on the shore and looking away, you will see a vast blue color of the sea. This lake is located on the mountain, so when tourists standing on the shore, the sea breeze mixed with forest wind will give them a very strange, different feeling. Cycling across the forest is a way to explore the mysterious beauty of that “Pleiku eyes”.
2. Phu Cuong Waterfall (Thác Phú Cường)
Also called as the white silk strip of Central Highlands, Phu Cuong waterfall is located in the Phu Cuong quarry area, in Dun Commune, Chu Se (Chư Sê) district, Gia Lai province, about 3k away from Chu Se district and 45 km from Pleiku city to the southeast. Coming to mountains and forests of Central Highlands also means coming to the enormousness –the flow of 45m in height on the La Peet stream. Visiting here, tourists will be able to admire the waterfall while listening to the birds twittering. Moreover, the banks of the waterfall are the settling place of Ba Na and Gia Rai ethnic groups. Talking with them and going to catch small fish or pick the medicinal herbs in the forest will bring to you lots of experiences.
3. Ho Troi (Hố Trời) – The Gift From Heaven
The name Ho Troi comes from local dialects. This is a giant crater caused by the perennial flow generated, without bottom. From the crater, if you want to go down, you have to swing the huge ropes from the trees above. Stalking the ropes, along the steep cliffs, you will reach the first floor of the hole and feel surprised at the moss layer forming on the wall, the different colors of creatures and the small flows flowing along the cliffs. Here, tourists could look down and feel like being lost in the Penglai Scene. There are about 20 floors and each has a different beauty. Visiting all of these 20 floors, tourists will arrive at Quy Nhon (Quy Nhơn) Sea. Ho Troi is too primitive and rather dangerous. The majority of people coming here are local people. So, if you want to go to somewhere for relaxing, it is not a good option, but if you want to explore, it should not be missed.
