Lak Lake

Lak Lake or Lac Lake is a natural lake in Lak District, around 60km from Buon Ma Thuot, the capital of Dak Lak province in Central Highlands Vietnam. This is definitely a must see.


Overlooking the Lak Lake is the old summer villa of Emperor Bao Dai, which has been renovated into a hotel. Around this beautiful lake, you will find Jun Village, home to the Jun ethnic people. The villagers have a peculiar form of fishing where they attach metal rods to a car battery and run the rods through the water zapping and stunning the fish and then collecting them to keep in a tank at the village until they are needed.


A visit to Lak Lake should include a homestay overnight in a traditional longhouse (“Nha rong”) and a fantastic elephant ride or a dugout boat trip to cross the water of Lak Lake. A dugout is a boat made from a hollowed tree trunk, popularly used by ethnic people in Northwest and Central Highlands Vietnam., an interesting heritage of ancient civilization.
