The idyllic beauty of Kon Tu Rang terraced fields

Hi Hivers,
If you ask me my favorite destination in Mang Den, Kon Tum, I can tell you right away it's Kon Tu Rang terraced fields. I was recommended it by my friends. Located away from the residential area and about 12 km from the center of Mang Den town, it is the terraced field of the Ba Na ethnic people in Kon Tu Rang village. It is surrounded by mountains and poetic Dak Bla river. And to get there I had to cross a beautiful suspension bridge. It took me about 30 minutes to drive a motorbike from Mang Den town center to Kon Tu Rang rice terraces.

You might ask why the Ba Na people here work on terraced fields, right? Let me explain. Firstly, the terrain here is not flat, so the locals have no choice but to cultivate terraced fields. In addition, terraced fields save space, make use of groundwater of mountainous areas and better resist erosion. Therefore, when visiting the mountainous areas of Vietnam, you will see a lot of terraced fields. And it is the terraced fields that have created the beauty of many lands of Vietnam. The terraced fields in Kon Tu Rang are no exception. It is even more special because it is surrounded by mountains and a romantic river.

Another special feature that you can easily recognize when coming to Kon Tu Rang terraced fields are the houses containing rice. Those are small stilt houses built by locals right next to rice fields. You may wonder why they do that. I had the same question when I first saw those houses, and then I found the answer from a local. Living houses of the Ba Na people are usually cottages or wooden houses, which are easily combustible materials. And for the Ba Na people, rice in particular and food in general are very important, so they built that small house on stilts to store rice in a separate area to avoid fires. Would the rice and food stored in those houses be stolen? The answer is no. The Ba Na people are very respectful of other people's property and never intend to steal things from others. Even if you give them something, they will find a way to give you something else. So even though rice and food are stored in warehouses far from residential areas and left unattended, they are safe.

And I had a great time there. Besides the picturesque scenery with terraced fields, winding river, beautiful suspension bridge, rolling mountains and floating clouds, Kon Tu Rang terraced fields also bring me a sense of peace. The idyllic life of the locals and the fresh air make me feel so relaxed and peaceful. Far from the hustle, bustle and pollution of crowded cities, here time passes slowly and gently. And as always I have the opportunity to immerse myself in the amazing nature and take beautiful pictures, which always makes me happy.

They literally have attempted my murder and are trying to kill me with V2K and RNM. Five years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem if you run into one of them you may want to immediately shoot them in the face. 187, annihilate, asphyxiate, assassinate, behead, bleed, bludgeon, boil, bomb, bone, burn, bury, butcher, cap, casket, choke, chop, club, crucify, crush, curb, decapitate, decimate, deflesh, demolish, destroy, devein, disembowel, dismember, drown, electrocute, eliminate, end, euthanize, eviscerate, execute, explode, exterminate, extinguish, finish, fry, grind, guillotine, gut, hack, hang, hit, ice, implode, incinerate, kill, liquidate, lynch, massacre, maul, microwave, mutilate, neutralize, obliterate, off, pop, poison, punnish, quarter, ruin, shank, shock, shoot, shred, skin, slay, slaughter, smoke, smother, snipe, snuff, squish, stab, strangle, stone, suffocate, suicide, SWAT, swing, terminate, torture, terrorize, whack, waste, wreck.

It was only this week when I've known that Vietnam and other neighboring countries of the Philippines (my country) also had terraced fields. Such beauties! We indeed have a lot in common! Great article, as always, @dodovietnam! 💚

Wow it is so beautiful and green. Thanks too for talking about how you felt and teaching us about the people. That is so great that they don't have to worry about someone sealing their food. Honesty is such a wonderful trait to cultivate and treasure.
