Koi To waterfall - A hidden gem in the forest of Kon Ray, Kon Tum, Vietnam

in Pinmapple3 months ago

Hi dear Hivers in Pinmapple community, with the hobby of travelling around, exploring new places and taking photos, today I would like to take you to another beautiful place, which is Koi To waterfall, a hidden gem in the forest of Dak Koi commune, Kon Ray district, Kon Tum province. Yesterday was Sunday, so I and my friends had a wonderful time to discover its beauty. The waterfall is about 28km from the center of Kon Ray district, and about 50km from my place. It's not really far, but because of its hidden location, I didn't hear about it until recent conversation with my friend. After that we decided to have a exploraiton to the waterfall. The journey was quite tough, but the reward was totally worthy.

Koi To waterfall is itself a masterpiece of Mother Nature. But firstly, I want to mention the journey to get there. There are many interesting things on the way there. To get to the waterfall, we had to go through several different villages. And with the pristine beauty, those villages are worthy to pay a visit and have look. I learned something new from those villages even though I'm a local guy. One thing that we can easily realize is that the people here lead a simple life and they live in small houses.

With the life harmony with nature, there are many different trees and plants around the villages.

People in the village make a living by planting agricultural crops such as rice, sweet potatoes, cassava, corn,...Besides, raising livestocks such as buffalos, cows, pigs, chicken, ducks,...is the main income of the villages. We can see many different kinds of animal on the way to the waterfall.

Located next to a river, there are villages isolated from the main road because of a river. To get to the villages, we have no choice except crossing over the suspension bridge.

The boys in the photos below are just in their thirteen years old. But look at them, they drive motorbiles professional and work very hard. The man carrying the stem is 69 years old, how can he be strong like that? And look at the man wading the river with a heavy bag of cassava on his back, can you do that? They often go to the forest with the dogs and they come back with a lot of firewood on their backs.

Despite of difficult life, villagers here are happy people. On the way to the waterfall, I stopped several times to say hello to local people, and they welcomed me by friendly smiles.

Do you know what is this? This is the public gong of the village. The leader of the village will hit the public to gather the villages in common events of the village. Of the villagers also use the public gong to let people know that you need some help or emergency situation.

We saw some children on their way home from the school. And they were so cute on their small bicycles.

And on the way to the waterfall, we come across a big lonely tree in the middle of the meadow. We then stopped to take photos with the tree.

There are so many interesting things, right? And the main purpose of the trip today is exploring Koi To waterfall. To get to the fall, we have to go through small path to go deep into the forest. Then we rented local guys to take us there by their motorbikes. And when we set foot at the fall, all of us were "WOW" with the majestic beauty of the waterfall. Really, I didn't think and know that there is a beautiful waterfall like that in this area. Enjoy some photos of the Koi To in the photos below.

I like the countryside pictures. I love to go to waterfalls as well, just that I have limited time to explore to waterfalls here in the region.

I hope your time will be free soon, and then you can enjoy yourself at one of the beautiful waterfalls in your region.

some beautiful photos, I see residents in your area are the same as in my area, children go to school using bicycles, and there is a flyover too, another beautiful thing is a waterfall, even though you have to travel a long way, there is satisfaction when you see it the waterfall and the air are so fresh

I'm happy that we share a lot in common. And yeah even though the journey is quite long, the reward is totally worthy.

The waterfall is a beautiful place and I love the way the water snakes down the rocks in hasty descent. The bridge looks like it's suspended with thick ropes, It would be fun walking along it.
The simplicity of life and the Pure and Natural things around these people is what makes your trip very worthy. Thank you for sharing these beautiful places.

I always enjoy your posts so much! The places that you visit are so different to what I'm used to and people always seem so happy even though they have so little.
