The Ariêuping (sepulcher) festival is taking place at A Dang hamlet, Ta Rut commune, Dakrong district, Quang Tri province from August 8 to 10, attracting the participation of thousands of local people.
The spiritual cultural festivals aim to pay homage to the deceased Pa Ko ethnic people in western Quang Tri province, held every 10 to 15 years. The festivals are also a chance for the descendants of the family to gather, which aims to avoid confusion in the marriage of future generations.
