Banar ethnic villages - Pleiku city tour

Departure point: Pleiku
Trip type: Ethnic culture & Sightseeing
Duration: 1 day
Price: From US$...

Dektu & Dekrol are two traditional villages of Banar ethnic minority. The most distinctive aspect of a Bahnar village is its Rong house or communal house, the roof of which may be up to 20m high and slightly curved. The Rong house is the centre of village cultural and ceremonial life, and also the home of adolescent boys, who are taught Bahnar history, the skills of hunting and other manly matters. The village houses grouped around the Rong house are typically house-on-stilt with a thatched or tiled roof, and are often decorated with geometric motifs. Bahnar people also erect funeral houses and decorate them with elaborate carvings, though they are not as imposing as those of the Jarai. After the burial, wooden statues, gongs, wine jars and other items of family property will be placed in the funeral house.
