Besides the Rhade, M'Nong and Bahnar ethnic groups also live here.

Don Village

Don village is famous for catching and taming wild elephants, and elephant rides are popular among visitors and an interesting way to get around. Situated on the banks of the Krong Ana River, the village is 50km (31 miles) from Buon Ma Thuot. The village has many very beautiful stilt houses built by the M'Nong, Gia Lai, Khmer and Loa ethnic groups. The village also offers opportunities to join in the cultural activities of ethnic people, cooking rice and tasting Ruou Can - a wine distilled from wild leaves, cassava roots and rice, drunk from a large earthen jar through bamboo straws.

Lak Lake 

Lak Lake (Ho Lak) is about 50km (31 miles) south of Buon Ma Thuot. Framed by low mountains, the lake is home to many varieties of wading birds. Emperor Bao Dai built a small palace here, but it is now in ruins. A climb up the adjacent hill is well worthwhile for its fantastic lake views. A visit to the nearby M'nong villages is also a unique experience.
