Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake, Banlung

4.0
#1 of 10 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.

  • Amazing place, well looked after by the Tampoeun. You walk right around the edge or swim in the clear, clean water. The banks are clean too.  more »
  • Beautiful Lake where you no problems a day to the swim, relax and go for a walk (circular route around the Lake) can spend. There are stalls where you can get to eat too little things. Also the sea of Banlung is easy to reach.
