|Ako Dhong village is 2km from the center of Buon Ma Thuot city in the North. Going along Phan Chu Trinh street and turn left 300m, we come to the village. Founded in 1956 by the chief Ama H'rin from M'Drak district, it is also called Ama H'rin village. |
The village is designed as the Ede traditional model : the village main road runs from East to West. The East with the sunrise, the direction of life, is the village entrance. The West with the sunset, the direction the death, is the cementery. Along the road, 30 houses 12m - 15m long each with graceful red tile roof (260 people total) lie in Sound-North direction separted by straight hibiscus fences and colourful flower garden.
When we come into the village, our first impression is tidy and clean. It's no exagration that it is the cleanest and most civilized village in the Central Highland. The villagers are highly aware of community hygiene. The village road, gardens, yards, houses are carefully cleaned.
Next to the residential area is the cultivated land. The villagers live mainly on planting coffee so it's not surprising to see coffee gardens with branches, sagging under the weight of their fruit hiding on hill slopes reflecting their shadows in the blue fresh stream water.
With 26 ha of coffee tree, villager income is fairly high the remaining 26 ha is forest and lakes making the landscape more beautiful. Ako Dhong means the orgigin of the streams Ea Nuol, Ea Giang, Ea Dung, Ea Ding, Ea Pui Thun Mnung.
Coming here, besides the green of nature, we hear streams babbling and the wind singing. The stream water is so clear. If you have time, don't forget to call at the village well to enjoy the freshness of the water. The well water is clear and cool. It's never been dry ever in drought.
Now besides planting coffee trees, villagers raise cattle,and breed catfish and tipalia fish in the lake. Every young person goes to school, some study in universities at different faculties. The living condition is improving day by day.
Coming to Ako Dhong – Will give good memories.
