According to the village elders in this area, the lakes and waterfalls in Mang Den are the embodiment of gods in the sky. Once upon a time, the god Yang Pling sent 7 sons down here to set up a village. But Yang Pling's wives transformed into animals to look after their sons, so the sons were told not to harm these animals.

They lived a happy fulfilling life in Mang Den until one day, the sons disobeyed the god by mistakenly eating one of the wives in their animal form. God Yan Pling was so furious, he decided to punish the children by building 7 pillars from the sky upon Mang Den.

These pillars formed the 7 lakes and 3 fire columns shot up to the sky to form 3 waterfalls in Mang Den.

Dak Ke Lake is the largest and most beautiful of all lakes and chose to develop it into a tourist area of ​​Dak Ke Lake.

According to photographer Huy Dang (from Kon Tum city), “The cherry blossom in Mang Den has a feature that its color is lighter than elsewhere. I think the climate here is similar to the delta the so it is sunny and it gives cherry blossom a lighter color while. in colder places, the color is darker. In Mang Den, in addition to the typical beauty of the cherry blossom season on each New Year's Eve, the natural scenery, lakes, waterfalls ... here are very beautiful. It is an ideal place for our artists to create.”
