Travel Trips

Kon Tum is the furthest province in the north of the Central Highlands. The majority of Kon Tum's natural area lies in the west of the Truong Son Range, so the terrain tends to tilt from east to west and lower from north to south. This region is also home to many large rivers such as the Cai River (flowing to Quang Nam), Se San River (flowing to Cambodia), Ba River (flowing to Phu Yen). Thus, it can be said that Kon Tum tourism is associated with the wild nature due to the nature and bearing the culture of Tay Nguyen gongs of the indigenous people.
