Yaklom Lake at Ban Lung, Cambodia

Tourist Attractions in Ratanakiri province, Cambodia
Yaklom crater lake at Ban Lung

While living & traveling in Thailand I also sometimes go to Laos or Cambodia. And in May 2013 I did travel for about 10 days in Cambodia. I did stay for 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, but demand for wood is changing the landscape fast. So I explored the nearby area of Ban Lung and one of the amazing places to visit is Yakom Lake in a old volcano 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. 

The World Is My Oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
