Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake, Banlung

4.0
#3 of 12 in Things to do in Banlung
Swim in crystal clear waters and take in the scenery at Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake. This magnificent lake sits in a 4,000-year-old volcano crater, surrounded by lush jungle and walking trails. Follow the path surrounding the lake and admire an abundance of plant and animal life, keeping an eye out for exotic birds in particular. The almost perfectly circular lake has an impressive depth of 48 m (157 ft), which makes the water invitingly clear. After strolling around the water’s edge and taking in the scenic surroundings from the various viewing points, dive in to the refreshingly cool water. The lake is considered a sacred place of worship; therefore, visitors should swim wearing clothes rather than bathing suits.

    Large perfectly round Lake, the water is pretty clear and it is nice to swim alongside locals. You can do around the Lake in 45 min - 1 hour or stop you with your picnic on one 5 small pontoons. There is also a museum about the local ethnic groups but which is under renovation this summer. Only negative: $ 2 entry with unsympathetic guards...
