Coming here, you will know more about the mysterious culture, of course indispensable legends or magical laws of the Cil people.

Like a rhyme sung by children:

“Sông suối là của chung

Cá dưới suối ai xúc cũng được

Bắt ếch con còn chừa ếch mẹ

Chặt tre phải chừa cây măng

Đốt tổ ong phải chừa ong chúa

Bẫy cá bằng thuốc sẽ làm suối nghèo”


“Rivers and streams belong to all

Fish in the stream can be caught

Catching baby frogs, leaving the mother

Chopping bamboo, leave young bamboo shoots

Burning the hive, return the Queen bee

Trapping fish by gunpowder makes the stream poor.”

Why do you need to check your fitness before joining an expert trekking tour?

The rugged mountainous terrain is typical of the Monkey Mountain route. With steep vertical slopes, thorny trees lined up along the way. When moving deep into the old forest, many sections do not even have a path.

Therefore, it will be extremely dangerous if you do not have much experience or have not participated in trekking the Monkey Mountain route before. Only the Cil who were used to living in the jungle could move easily. However, do not worry, if you do not have much experience, the safety guide of Tropical Trekking will support you throughout the trip.

So when participating in trekking Dong Iar Jieng - Yo Dou Hunter Road, to ensure your health and safety during the trip, we always ask participants to take a fitness test.
