Dak Tuar cavern was recognized by Ministry of Culture and Information as a historical relic in 1991.
However, in the list of 8 references of the Dak Lak Museum, there is no information related to Dak Tuar cave.
Historical figures are mentioned in the file for approval historical site as Huynh Van Need (former Secretary of the Provincial Committee of Dak Lak), Hoang Le (former chief of the provincial Party Committee), affirmed that they have never live in Dak Tuar cave. Some even said that they did not know where the cave is. Mr. Hoang Le said: “In the war against the US, authorities have a base at Tuar village, not in the cave. So, Tuar village should be a historical site but not the cave”.
Until now, the historical site has not been clarified. But now matter how the cave is, it is an ideal place for those who love travelling and discovery.
