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.
