NDO – Located around 30 kilometres from Kon Tum Town, Chu Mom Ray National Park is an attractive destination that tourists shouldn’t miss during when visiting Kon Tum Province.

Chu Mom Ray is one of the 94 special-use forests in Vietnam and is home to the largest primary forest area in the country. The park also witnessed many fierce battles during the national struggles against foreign invaders. Traces of trenches and bomb craters can still be found in several places at the park.

In 2004, it was recognised by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as a ASEAN Heritage Park.
