This name comes from the rather persistent war of the ethnic minorities living on this land against the “Western advance” of the Cham people in Panduranga (Ninh Thuan) in the 17th century, and the people living in this land were fighting. The locality takes this name to name the majestic waterfall all year round, the water flows to create white mist in the whole area and since then the waterfall is called Prenn.
