Ba Be lake
Ba Be Lake is the largest and perhaps the most beautiful natural lake in Vietnam. It is formed by three lakes connected into a single continuous body of water, stretching nearly 8 km north to south. As one of the world's biggest natural lakes, the surface area of Ba Be expands of 500ha during the wet season and never falls dry even at the peak of the dry season. The lake features crystal green water, beautiful islands, spectacular limestone cliffs and caves. It may take you a whole day boat trip to discover all the splendors the land has to offer.
Having been formed approximately 200 million years ago, the lake is surrounded by limestone cliffs, which in turn are covered by primary forests. The lake comprises three zones named Pe Lam, Pe Lu and Pe Leng. Three rivers, named Nang, Ta Han and Nam Cuong, are the main inflows of the lake. The Nang River enters the lake through a large waterfall called Dau Dang. In the lake there are also three islands, named An Ma, Khau Cum and Po Gia Mai.
