Coc Ly means plum tree’s root (Coc = root, Ly = plum), and the beauty of the fair here is not merely that a person comes for  purchasing but many people also go to the market to play, to meet friends and find partners 
Throughout the route against the clear Chay River with fascinating beauty of the primitive natural landscape, sometimes you may come across the looming roofs alternating with the green of mountains and forests on the two sides of Chay River, which catches the attention of visitors.
