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.

Dalat is a charming provincial city with a few beautiful buildings from the colonial era. It is very popular among Vietnamese. People come here to relax, to enjoy a stroll in the fresh air or simply for shopping (its dry fruits are quite famous). The lake, a few minutes walk from downtown, is part of this relaxing atmosphere.

It is a unique lake settle in the center of a mountain city like Dalat. The lake is large enough to give you a nice view with the green water and lots of pine trees. You can go for a walk around the lake enjoy sight seeing under the cool fresh weather in Dalat, or just drop by some coffee... More

A 5km run round the lake. Meet the friendly locals in daily exercise till around 7pm. Have dinner at the restaurant. Check out the guys fishing for dinner near the other side of the bridge on the east side of lake. Chat with some locals especially near the tourist bus parking area, with people that might offer side tours on... More

Having travelled around Vietnam quite a lot, Dalat wasn't as good as other places. However this lake was probably the best bit about the town itself. There are two restaurants on the lake which light up at night and are very pretty. Its a nice lake worth having a casual walk around.
