Herd of horses graze on the steppe in the dry season. This is mostly a purebred wild horse, which is trained by local people to take pictures or rent a horse-drawn carriage to get more income and develop local tourism. The green field is also place where people raise livestock such as cows and buffalo.

The stream flowing on the Dong Lam grassland is drying up. In the dry season, the steppe is suitable for outdoor tourism activities, culture and sports, and climbing to explore caves. However, in the rainy season, from July to October, water will flood the grasslands with a depth of 2-3 m. This is the reason why people do not cultivate agriculture on this steppe because water will wash away all crops.
