Yaek Laom Lake

Yaek Laom Lake

The lake fills a 4000-year-old volcanic crater, a nearly perfect circle 800m across and 48m deep at its deepest point. The crystal clean waters are surrounded by forest, and you can walk round the lake in around an about hour. There are plenty of spots to take a dip including some small wooden jetties. The lake is 5km from town which you could walk or come down on a bike. There is a US$1.50 entrance fee and a parking charge of 2000 Riel for a motorbike, 1000 Riel for a bicycle.
