Extinct volcano dyed yellow in wild sunflowers

Published:  08:38 Monday - November 14, 2016 Visitors can now admire blooming wild sunflowers in Chu Dang Ya Commune, Gia Lai Province, where traces of a century-old extinct volcano can still be found today.

Vietnam's plateaus are covered in a carpet of yellow at this time of year.

 

The Central Highlands town of Da Lat is not the only part of Vietnam that hides a flowery spectacle. Visitors can now admire blooming wild sunflowers in Chu Dang Ya Commune, Gia Lai Province, where traces of a century-old extinct volcano can still be found today. 

Chu Dang Ya means wild ginger in the language of the J'rai ethnic community. The funnel-shaped crater and volcanic ash mixed with red basalt soil are still evident today.

The commune is 30 kilometers from downtown Gia Lai. Visitors are impressed by the beauty of the wild sunflowers growing along the road sides.  

November is wild sunflowers season. In Chu Dang Ya, the blossoms come into season at the same time but last longer. But you still only have a month to enjoy them. 

Fertile red soil also brings life to other types of trees and vegetables. Pumpkins and sweet potatoes are traditional crops in Chu Dang Gia. Local people say the red basalt soil gives their products a sweeter taste than products grown in other regions.

Chu Dang Ya has become a new flowery photography set for visitors.
