YokDon National Park

Published:  06:49 Tuesday - April 10, 2012 Located in Buon Don District, Dak Lak Province, YokDon National Park is proud of its bio-diversity which attracts both tourists and scientists.

Whenever going to Dak Lak, tourists usually stop at Buon Don, a famous tourist attraction. As the largest national park in Vietnam, it covers 115,000ha, not including 10,000ha of its belt zone. Its jungles bear the characteristics of tropical forests in Southeast Asia. According to primary survey, YokDon boasts 464 species of flora, most of which are Michelia (ngoc lan). In dry seasons, it is still cool, just like the climate in Da Lat, and orchids are still in full bloom.
