A bit further into the NBCA’s area, at Dong Sakee Forest, visitors will also learn about an ‘oil-tree’ which, when cut, produces a liquid that is flammable and used by the local villagers at night. In addition, discover the ‘Pepsi-tree’, which dispenses bubbly water – like Pepsi. Of course, visitors are welcome to taste it! A highlight at Don Phu Vieng is the chance to see rare Douc Langurs and hornbills.
Visitors also get the chance to learn about the use of natural products such as edible leaves, herbs and bush fruits along the trekking trail. Don Phu Vieng trek usually lasts three to four days and visitors stay at surrounding villages, where dinner is prepared with the traditional Bai Cii ceremony.
