Bahnar Villages
An ethnic minority living in the Central Highlands, the Bahnar are as renowned for the musical prowess, achieved with bamboo instruments that include the fiddle and xylophone, as their soaring, thatch-roof nha rongs (meeting houses using for community activities), some of which are as high as 50 feet. The quiet town of Kon Tum, located a couple of hours from the point where the borders of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam meet—and the border crossing station into Laos at Bo Y—is a smart base for exploring the numerous Bahnar villages nearby. For the less adventurous, there are a few villages within Kon Tum itself. The nearest airport to Kon Tum is Pleiku, about 25 miles away.
