A park located in Dak Nong province of Vietnam received global geopark status by UNESCO in the executive board meeting last Tuesday.
In the meeting held at Paris on July 07, 2020 , Dak Nong Geopark with the recognition conferred by the UNESCO’s program and external relations commission has become the third of its kind in Vietnam after the Dong Van karst plateau in Ha Giang Province and Non Nuoc Cao Bang in Cao Bang Province, both in the northern mountains. Thus, Dak Nong Global geopark is now the only of its kind in the South of Vietnam.
A global geopark is defined to be single, unified geographical areas where sites and landscapes of international geological significance are managed with a holistic concept of protection, education and sustainable development by UNESCO.
Being set up in 2015, Dak Nong geopark is the area of 4,760 sq.km stretching on the districts of Krong No, Cu Jut, Dak Mil, Dak Song, and Dak G’long along the Krong No River.
Its most prominent feature is a volcanic cave system, reportedly inhabited by tribes 6,000-7,000 years ago. The park also owns valuable geomorphological heritages such as stunning ponds and waterfalls and other tangible and non-tangible cultural values.
This is the opportunity for Vietnam to develop the tourism industry in local areas and for foreign visitors to discover a new beauty of the country.
