(HBO) - On such sunny and scorching summer days, Lac Son mountainous area has been a haven for tourists. It is home to wonderful, breezy and impressive landscapes like Bai Bui (Ngoc Son commune), Mu waterfall (Tu Do commune), Ngoc Son-Ngo Luong nature reserve and hamlets lying on the foot of the mountain. Of them, Mu waterfall, a gift of Mother Nature, has become a magnet to backpackers and tourists.


The dry season in Mu waterfall (April 2021).

The waterfall has become more popular among tourists from other localities. Measuring dozens of metres in height, the waterfall mesmerises tourists as it flows through boulders amid spectacular forests.

In addition, Mu (currently Mu Khuong) village, which is wholly-inhabited by the Muong ethnic group, also leaves unforgettable impressions on tourists for its customs, code of conduct and exotic local cuisine.

In addition to cultural identity, Mu waterfall embellishes Muong Vang culture-tourism prospects. Therefore, the district has rolled out measures to boost tourist arrivals to the waterfall by making roads and pathways to the location, as well as a bridge over the waterfall so that tourists can enjoy the view and take photos.

Training courses on holding tourism activities were also held for local residents. The waterfall was recognised as a natural landscape at provincial level in 2017.

Unbeknownst to many, the waterfall once had six flows of different altitudes of an average of 50m. It can no longer retain its original form due to a shortage in sources of water.

The deformation, caused by the building of hydropower plants, evokes a sense of discontent for visitors. They shared a thought that there can be numerous hydropower plants, but there is only one Mu waterfall.

Actions must be taken as soon as possible to save the waterfall and help it return to the original form. The waterfall is viewed as a rough diamond in Lac Son, which is hoped to enrich ecotourism and cultural tourism potential of Ngo Luong-Ngoc Son./.
