The remote and undiscovered Central Highlands contain some of Vietnam’s best-kept secrets where visitors willing to get off-the-beaten track will discover pristine lakes, clear rivers, vast swathes of old-growth jungle and isolated ethnic minority villages.Volcanic red earth, dramatic green forests and glittering crystal lakes make this one of Vietnam’s most beautiful and mysterious regions. Along with wild elephants the area is home to monkeys, tigers and the endangered Javanese Rhinos. The natives of Ban Don village, 55km north-west of Buon Ma Thuot, are famous for their elephant-hunting skills and still trap and train the animals for agricultural work, transport and for festivals and races.
