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.
