On the days adjacent to the Lunar New Year, locals and tourists in many provinces and cities are flocking to Mang Den town, KonPlong district (Kon Tum) to immerse themselves in the "cherry blossom festival." These flowers are blooming all over the mountains.

Y Trang, the owner of Soc Mang Den Homestay, said that the forest cherry blossom trees here have been around for a long time. In 2008, Nguyen Thi Phuong's family (living in Ho Chi Minh City) brought cherry blossoms from Da Lat to plant them all over her family's hill in the Konplong district.

"Over the years, her family has nursed and propagated cherry blossoms and donated them to the local community for trial planting in gardens and along the street. Currently, many families in Mang Den have their own cherry blossom gardens. This attracts tourists to visit and take pictures every New Year's Eve and Spring," shared Trang.

Visitors can see cherry blossoms at Dak Ke lake, Ba Sy waterfall, Khanh Lam pagoda, the way to Ngoc Le mountain, the central park area, along both sides of Highway 24, and throughout Mang Den town.

The ideal time to see cherry blossoms is early in the morning when the sky is still cloudy and the night dew is still hanging on the branches. This is also an ideal time for visitors to check in and save the radiant moment of spring.

Tran My Hanh, a female tourist from Ho Chi Minh City, said that after a year of hard work, her family took a car to the Konplong district (Kon Tum) to celebrate Tet early in the cherry blossom season.

"My whole family came to Mang Den right at the time when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom in the days leading to Tet. We took many beautiful photos. This New Year, I wish my family and friends always stay healthy, happy, and successful," said Hanh.
