It covers more than 4,700sq.m, two-fifths of the province’s land area. It stretches in six among eight districts of the province, namely the districts of Krong No, Cu Jut, Dak Mil, Dak Song, Dak G’Long, and Gia Nghia Town.

There are some 65 heritage sites throughout the park including craters, a system of 50 caves created by volcanoes running a total length of 10,000m and waterfalls. In many caves, archaeologists have discovered interesting features of natural geology and traces of early humans.

Provincial authorities have called for investment to develop tourism and services at the site following a plan to develop community tourism model in the geopark.

The province has allocated and attracted investments to 44 destinations in the geopark.

Three resting halls, 30 parking lots, four public toilets, 20 rubbish bins, two information and exhibition centres have been built.

Tourists can visit a system of caves running inside basal rock mountain, which starts from Krong No Province and has made a record of the longest volcano cave system in Southeast Asia.

There are also attractions like the primitive natural landscapes of volcano Bang Mo (in Cư Jut District) and volcano Nam Gleh R’luh (Dak Mil District), ethnic minority cultures of E-De and M’Nong groups Ta Dung National Park, and Ta Dung Lake.

Local leaders have called for enterprises and individuals to join tourism and service development to enhance local tourism products while preserving and developing natural landscapes, geological values and cultural heritage as well as biological diversity.

The authorities have also been creating a homestay network at the site.

Visiting the site anytime in the year, tourists will feel cool with fresh air, especially in the ripe rice season. The whole field will look like a vivid painting.

Locals have used water from the Krong No River to feed the rice with famed Krong No Rice trademark.

The province has invited many groups of tourists to the site including a consulate delegation of Russia from HCM City and a delegation of the Israeli embassy from Hà Nôi.

Various travel agencies have worked with the park, like SAGO tour, Long An Tourist, Ben Thanh Tourist, Saigontourist, Hoa Binh Tourist and Royal Group to take visitors to the site.

The number of visitors to the park has increased and during Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday this year, the park received 54,000 visitors.
