09/04/2019 1.076 Views
Ba Be Lake Vietnam is one in 20 most beautiful lakes in the world recognized by UNESCO, also the largest fresh lake in Vietnam. It is a perfect place to relax on holidays that brings you close to nature and show you how lovely life is.

1. Where is Ba Be Lake Vietnam ?

Ba Be Lake Vietnam belongs to Ba Be National Park in Nam Mau Commune, Ba Be District, Bac Kan Vietnam. It is surrounded by two mountain ranges Ngan Son and Bac Son. Therefore, it is quite separated from the outside. If you are looking for a peaceful place to hide from the daily stress, then prepare for a Ba Be tour now. Ba Be Lake Vietnam is one in a hundred largest natural lakes in the world and is now the centerpiece of the national park. The park and the surrounding area include the lakes, waterfalls, caves and unusual rock formations abound. The whole area is richly forested and also the home to many ethnic minority communities.

2. Ba Be Lake Vietnam view and activities

Ba Be Lake view is covered by tropical and semi-tropical evergreen Thailandian monsoon forest. The biodiversity is rich – 50 animal species, over 400 plants and many species of insects, reptiles, and birds. The ten seriously endangered animals in the park include two primates, the Black Gibbon and the Tonkinese 'snub-nosed' monkey. The latter is one of the world’s rarest species and on the brink of extinction. Flora and Fauna International is working with the park authorities and other agencies to save this attractive creature.

The lake itself is indeed three lakes linked by wide channels. Overall, it’s about 7km long and a kilometer across at its widest point and contains around fifty species of freshwater fish. The surface is nearly always calm, making a boat trip a peaceful experience. In addition, there are islands and caves to visit. Don't miss Puong Cave as a must-visit place in the area. Within the park’s boundary, there are a several small villages inhabited by members of the Tay, Red Dao, Coin Dao, and White H’mong ethnic minorities. However, the colorful costumes typical of most of these groups are seldom in evidence apart from performances and demonstrations for tourists.

Some of the villages offer basic, but reasonably comfortable homestays in Ba Be Lake. An alternative is the park’s guesthouse, which provides basic accommodation only. Elsewhere, there is limited local standard accommodation in Cho Ra town, about 18km away outside Ba Be Lake Vietnam

3. How to get to Ba Be Lake Vietnam from Hanoi ?

To visit Ba Be Lake from Hanoi, you will join the 250km journey which takes from six to eight hours. The road gets rough along the latter part, but the excellent scenery compensates.  An interesting stop en-route is Thai Nguyen, a center of heavy industry based on steel manufacturing, and the unlikely home of the Museum of Nationalities of Vietnam. It provides an informative overview of the country’s many ethnic minorities, particularly useful for visitors that haven't already visited Hanoi's excellent Ethnology Museum.

From the attraction, you can continue to admire other spots such as Dau Dang waterfall, some famous temples and pagodas. Further north is Cao Bang province, a remote area on the border with China. Cao Bang is sparsely populated. It has very few large settlements but several ethnic groups in villages hardly affected by tourism of Vietnam travel. The limestone ‘karst’ scenery is attractive, unspoiled and rich in bio-diversity.

Few visitors venture further north than Ba Be, so Cao Bang vies with the remote northwest as one of the best places to see truly authentic ethnic minority lifestyles. From Cao Bang, it’s possible to loop round to the south via the border town of Lang Son to Quang Ninh Province and Ha Long Bay
