The Dak Nong Geopark has an area of more than 4,700 square kilometers, accounting for more than two-fifths of the natural area of Dak Nong Province, spreading over six out of eight districts and towns of the province.
The geopark has 65 geological and geomorphological heritage sites, including a system of nearly 50 caves with a total length of over 10,000 meters, craters, and waterfalls.
It also has a tropical forest ecosystem that preserves many specific values of biodiversity and with unique cultural, geological, natural features, and especially traces of activities of prehistoric humans.
This is the third global geopark in Vietnam, besides Dong Van Karst Plateau Global Geopark in Ha Giang Province and Non Nuoc Cao Bang Global Geopark in Cao Bang Province.
