A beautiful body of water, Pa Khoang Lake is 17km east of Dien Bien Phu on the road from Son La, and 4km off the highway. About a 15km drive around the lake’s edge, or an hour’s boat ride plus a 3km forest walk, is the recently restored bunker of General Giap , the Vietnamese commander of the Dien Bien Phu campaign. The network of bunkers, tunnels, sentry boxes and huts here could be better set up for visitors, but make an interesting diversion for those attracted by Vietnam’s legendary military tactician.
