The meaning of “Damb’ri

Damb’ri in the language of K’Ho ethnic minority group means “Waiting”. According to the legend of this ethnic minority group, there was a couple falling in love with each other and often dating near the waterfall. One day, however, the boy suddenly disappeared without leaving a trace or message. The girl day by day was continuously crying and waiting for her lover to come back. For a long time, her tears were stagnated and flowed into the waterfall. This is the reason why the waterfall was named Damb’ri.
