(Edited)

Hello everyone. How are you today?
At the beginning of today's post, I would like to send my best wishes to everyone for a peaceful and joyful Christmas season. All things peace will come to you.
In the previous article, I had an article introducing a place of Kon Tum province, that is Mang Den, and in today's article, I will introduce the remaining places of Kon Tum province and have a place very special, that I would like to introduce to everyone is the junction of Indochina, I will say this place at the end of my article.

We left Mang Den early in the morning and the next place our group will visit is Kon Tum Wooden Church. From Mang Den to Kon Tum city, we moved nearly 50km, going in the direction of National Highway 24. On the way down to Kon Tum, we went quite early and stopped on the Mang Den pass to be able to watch the sunrise. Standing from the top of the mountain with an altitude of 1100m,I have a very wide view and am not obscured by trees. The mountains swayed and the clouds drifted under the mountains. From this place, I could see the city below. This place can be said to be favorable weather and a great camping place, to be able to watch the sunrise and hunt for clouds in the early morning.

Continuing to move, we accidentally met a waterfall, named Ngon Phi Waterfall, the area around the waterfall has a very beautiful primeval forest. We were very curious and went deep into the forest, with the green vegetation and the singing of birds, making us extremely excited. Leaving the forest we continued our journey, to the city of Kontum. As soon as we arrived in Kon Tum, we had a small problem when our driver's license was checked by the traffic police. We presented our documents and continued to move back to the city. After an arduous road, we arrived in Kon Tum city at 11 am, after checking in to the hotel and having lunch, we started the journey to discover Kon Tum.

The first place we want to visit is Kon Tum Cathedral, the church also has another name (Wood Church). The church is located at 13 Nguyen Hue Street, Thong Nhat ward, Kon Tum city, this is an extremely unique and impressive architectural work. The whole building is built of wood, with Roman architectural style with ancient beauty. The church was built in 1913 and completed in 1918, up to the present time, the church is more than 100 years old. The church was built according to the combination of western culture and Ba-Na wooden floor, imbued with the national identity of the Central Highlands. The whole wooden church is solid and closed construction, with a harmonious layout including the chapel, communal house, guest house, communal house, orphanage, and brocade weaving. In front of the church grounds, there is a statue of Bishop Martial Janin Phuoc. I think this is the first bishop here. The outside of the church and the main face of the church are 24m high and divided into 4 floors, the higher it goes, the smaller it gets. At the top of the church is a wooden cross, showing the majesty of the cathedral.

Stepping inside the cathedral, maybe this is an artistic masterpiece with wooden domes. Along with a large, airy space. The wooden pillars are decorated with very unique motifs, bringing a very close feeling when entering the church. Since the cathedral was in the middle of a ceremony, I limited myself to taking pictures inside this church. Stepping out of the church, we took souvenir photos of the outside of the church. After a century, the church is still standing proudly despite storms, natural disasters, and war, but this place still retains its original values historical treatment

That afternoon, we chose a place to watch the beautiful sunset, which is Kon Klor Bridge. This is a suspension bridge that has given me many impressions when coming here. The bridge was built in 1993 with the length of the bridge is 300m, the bridge is built entirely of reinforced steel. We moved on this bridge and were very excited, below the bridge is the poetic Dak Bla River. Surrounded by majestic high mountains. That afternoon the sky was very beautiful and the sunset was also very brilliant. Looking at the scenery here gives me an incredible sense of peace and relaxation.

The last place in my post today is the junction of Indochina. At the beginning of the article, I said that this is a place that I enjoyed during my trip that day. The junction of Indochina is a confluence point between the three Indochina countries. Including Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, this place is known as "a rooster crows, three countries listen". When you come to Kon Tum, you must visit this landmark once. This place is favored by the backpacker, very eager to conquer. If we move from the city center of Kon Tum, it will take us nearly 3 hours by motorbike. With nearly 90km distance. To catch the sunrise here, we moved from the night before and spent the night in Ngoc Hoi district. From Ngoc Hoi, we only take about 30 minutes by car, shortening the time and in time for us to catch the sunrise here.

The junction of Indochina is located at 1086m, located on a hill surrounded by high mountains. To get here, we had to go to the Bo Y border gate and ask permission from the border guards to come here to visit. After we presented all the documents, we were led to the landmark by the border guards. From the border gate to reach the landmark, we have to continue to move another 10km. Following the hilly roads, when we reached the foot of the mountain with a border marker posted on it, we were extremely happy to have conquered this landmark. Following the stairs, we step up the steps, to reach the landmark before the sun has risen. I caught the soldiers saluting the flag that morning. With the sun slowly rising behind the mountain, along with the dignity of the soldiers. Made us very proud to come here. The landmark was built in 2007, has a triangular cylinder, each face will have the symbol of each country. The landmark is located in a very beautiful position in the eye, the hills spread out. There are also two other paths here, probably two paths, of two countries Laos and Cambodia. When coming here to visit, to touch the milestone, to see the whole area here is the dream of each of us.

It can be said that in every journey that we have gone through, Kon Tum is a place with enchanting natural landscapes, captivating people's hearts, along with that are the long-standing cultures, still preserved until today, with traditional folklore of ethnic minorities in Viet Nam.
