The Central Highland region is entering the peak period of the dry season when thousands of hectares of 'khop' forests (forests with typical Dipterocarpaceae plants that only exist in Southeast Asia) along the border areas of the Central Highland provinces change leaves.
Khop is a type of forest consisting of sparse trees with leaves falling in the dry season. They exist only in Southeast Asia. In Vietnam, the Central Highlands is the only region that has khop forests, focused mainly in Yok Don National Park and the border areas of Dak Lak Province and Dak Nong Province.
