It's a large lake which you can take a stroll around. We went on one of the paddle boats, and it was impossible to control, which has put a bit of a dampner on my lake review TBH. Its a big body of water to walk around - pretty. That's all really.

It is a lovely place to sit and relax. The wind was blowing and it felt a bit like the german coast :) Walking around was also very nice and with the flowers it was a great place for photography!

Beatific lake with great views. Met many newly weds here having their wedding photo shoot. Did my daily exercises at the lake, one round is supposed to be 7 km, so did two rounds daily.

The man-made lake is large, beautiful and surrounded by thousands of pine trees and mountains. Reminded us of Lake Tahoe

The lake is a nice sight. Good for a long walk (15km) around it. There are some eagles (I guess) circling the water in search of fish. Would recommend visiting the lake. Sadly though some (small) areas of the lake smell ghastly due to pollution (trash etc.). Most of the lake is fine. Furthermore, there are limited benches around the... More

about 70min walk around. Beautiful scenery and way to experience the peaceful energy of the city. I ended up meeting a student along my way that wanted to practice English. I made for nice company and a good cultural exchange.

Nice lake to walk around in while in Da Lat. There were some carriages parked by the lake if you're into that kind of stuff. Peaceful and perfect place to relax in.
