The second explanation is that in the past, there was a poor village on the trail along the Tao Phung mountain slope. Poor people live mainly on farming and livestock. Every day, the children in the neighborhood often duck poultry on a piece of hills protruding from the mountains. However, one day, a pig appeared on the hill.
