Yeak Loam Lake is situated 5 km. southeast of Banlung town. The Yeak Loam lake (a volcanic crater) is the most beautiful, unspoilt lake of Ratanakiri formed by a volcanic eruption almost thousands of years ago. The lake has up to 50 meters (!) deep clean water and has an 800 meter diameter. Around the lake is a walking path of about 2,500 m. Two hundred meters of the track is a quaint wooden building housing tribal handicraft, the Crafts Museum.
