A new day, you can take a car wandering around the surrounding villages. The roads are full of rubble, crushed stone, slippery mud, challenging the pilgrim's steering. Many tourists choose to walk dozens of kilometers through the villages.

After visiting the villages, you can run back to Canh Nang town, turn a small path between the flea market in Sat village. The muddy areas after rain can make travelers "give up" but the beautiful scenery on the road is a reward worthy of all efforts.

A local lady pointed her wrinkled finger into the row of bamboo pipes leading water to the village, saying: "In the past, there were hundreds of them here, but the floods were swept away, only that much left." This is also a favorite place for photographers passing by.

Coming to Pu Luong, tourists can choose resorts or stay at homestays. Dinner in Pu Luong, when the rice is ripe, often has a thick, soft dish of Co Lung duck, a plate of cool green vegetables, maybe a banana flower, maybe a bamboo shoot, and is dipped with a few wild spices. Sip more cup of wine and you have just enjoyed the full flavor of the mountain land.
