Dak Nong belongs to the southwest frontier of fatherland, lying in the southwest of the Central Highlands, at the end of the Truong Son mountain chain. The province connects the economic region in the central coastal provinces and the southern key economic area. Along with its rich natural resources and abundant human resources, Dak Nong takes advantage of its favorable conditions for tourism development in particular and social – economic development in general.
Dak Nong owns abundant natural resources such as cool and fresh climate, pristine and tropical jungles which house rare species of plants and animals, beautiful and unique natural landscapes, especially sixteen primitive waterfalls scattered around the region such as Dray Sap, Gia Long, Trinh Nu, Luu Ly, Gau, Ngam, Dak G’Lun and seven – floor waterfall. Natural forests in Dak Nong account for about 53% of the total area, including many special forests with high level of biodiversity, Nam Nung and Ta Dung conservation zones. In the future, further investments will be focused on making Ta Dung conservation zone become a popular eco – tourism site on a national scale with unique and diversified tourism products.
