Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake, Banlung

4.5
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.

  • The flagship activity of this region is so iconic that... Large perfectly round Lake, it is nice to swim. You can do around the Lake in 45 min - 1 hour or stop you with your picnic on one 5 small pontoons. Attention is there not all around the Lake, but only on the first meters. No proposed activity to make live this place (pedalo rental, kayak, paddle,...) It's a shame there is not exploited potential. It seems to me that women are not allowed to get in a bathing suit (to check)

  • Cannot exit Banlung without visiting this emblematic place of the region. This sublime perfect circle-shaped lake is the remnant of an old volcanic crater of more than 700,000 years. It is considered sacred by tribes of the region. The surrounding vegetation forms a real nature reserve. The flora and fauna it houses are now protected.
