A man made reservoir but the beauty of nature inside was totally amazing. Caves like the coral cave and diamond cave were both fantastic, i'm still looking forward to see the other one inside the dam. But the sight was just beautiful and lovely

The water is the most beautiful clear blue, and delightfully warm for swimming. Dotted with islands. Spying monkeys in the trees is such a treat!

Go see for yourself it is a must see. Beautiful man made dam. Go stay on the dam in a floating campsite or one of the hotels.

Hi, I tried to google translate your answer, it said that you had rented the boat yourselves. How much did you pay for the boat? And how long did you rent it for (1 day or overnight)? Thanks:)
