Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake, Banlung
(4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our world travel planner, Banlung attractions like Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
