M’lieng Village

M’lieng Village

The second village of M’lieng is on the southwestern shore and can be reached by elephant or boat.

M’lieng village beside Lak Lake in Daklak Province is still the same as it was a hundred years. The ancient long houses and paths preserve one of the village’s tangible and intangible cultural values.

Many villagers still keep old jars and drums made of elephant or buffalo leather. The village has their own ethnic music and dance traditions that they perform at festivals.

Most of them do traditional craft – making brocade, gongs and jars and weaving bamboo products and fishing nets and traps.
Staying overnight by the flickering firelight while enjoying local dishes and listening to old men tell folk stories are an amazing experience.
