Yeak Laom Volcanic Lake, Banlung
(4.1/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Swings over the lake and little boys jumping in from the tree tops. A gentle stroll around the lake and a quick dip in the cool clear water from the wooden decking. Lush! Could do with more dustbins a...  more »
  • If you go to Banlung I think that you don't have to lose this volcanic Lake, is very nice and easy to reach also. We rent by $6 a motorcycle and went by our count. Take the main road that goes away from Strung Treng and a few kilometres is the signal, I think that is right. The road that leads to the Lake is paved, so access is not difficult. The entry I think that you cost US $ 1 or $ 2 per person. It is allowed to swim in the Lake and there is a trail that goes all around the Lake.

  • Touristy site for local (but almost no stranger). Full of small shops to buy food and souvenirs. You can either swim, water is warm and very clear, really super nice, either do a walk around the Lake
