Yaklom crater lake at Ban Lung in Ratanakiri, Cambodia
May 2013: I was a few days in the area of Ban Lung (Ratanakiri) in North-East Cambodia. In a area that once was a tense and remote jungle. So I explored the nearby area of Ban Lung and one of the amazing places to visit is Yakom Lake in a old vulcano crater and surrounded by beautiful big & old trees. It is just a few km's east of Ban Lung and is a perfect place to spend the afternoon swimming in the fresh water or just watching the locals enjoying a pick nick. Be aware of the fact that you will have to pay entrance fee, 500 riel for Cambodian people and 6.000 riel for tourists. And 2000 riel for your motorbike.
