The house built from basalt red soil is the work of artist Trinh Ba Dung, the owner of this tourist area. The unique feature of the project is basalt red soil, a typical material of the Central Highlands.
Through many trials for a long time, artist Trinh Ba Dung and his colleagues have found a formula to make an unburnt material from basalt red soil and some other additives. The special thing is that this material retains the specific color of the soil. This new basalt soil material has good bearing capacity, high durability, and can withstand the effects of nature, rain and sun.
