At the height of 2 000 meters, the back against Nhu Co San whose top is at 2.600 meters high, Y Ty hardly is shined by sun all the day. Therefore, they call Y Ty “land of fog”. Y Ty is where almost Ha Nhi people live, once be at this land, you can see the small houses likened huge mushrooms in the cloudy world. Due to extreme weather in here, Ha Nhi people have to build the house with special structure using soil and clay to make the wall with the thickness of 40 – 50 centimeters. There’s only one opened door so it makes it warm in winter and cool and fresh in summer. Ha Nhi is the less population in Vietnam, Y Ty is the most extreme land, however, it makes this place be unique & wonderful land for tourists.
