If you are travelling through Banlung, Yeak Laom is definitely a must. I’d recommend people walk clockwise around the lake. After a 30-40 minute walk through nature, you will arrive to the pontoons to swim in the lake. Enjoy the refreshing water after a hot...More

My favourite spot in Ratanakiri! So serene and gorgeous. We went swimming and loved every minute. So worth a visit.

I hope it manages to avoid hotels on its shore, I hope it manages to stay maintained as Chinese business interests encroach further into Ratanakiri.

Definitely worth it in my opinion. Went for a walk around the lake. Peaceful and not crowded. You have to pay $2 for entry.

If you are in/around Banlung Yeak Lom is a must-visit. It's peaceful and kept utterly clean. You can walk around it in 40 minutes or you can have a swim from one of several wooden platforms.

A pristine volcanic lake 5km from town. We jogged there and back and it was simple to do so. We went for sunset which was beautiful. It has rentable huts to be used for picnics.
