Welcome to Lak Lake


Accommodation is centered in Jun village, which is really now a neighbourhood of nearby Lien Son town, a settlement filled with rattan and wooden stilt houses. M’lieng and Le villages on the southwestern shore are more traditional and can be reached by boat or dirt road.

Unfortunately, all hotels and tour agencies here offer elephant rides, which are popular with the domestic tourists who make up most visitors to Lak Lake. We advise strongly against riding elephants, as it is detrimental to their health.
