Ba Ham Lake

How Ba Ham lake is unique?

Ba Ham Lake is located in the midst of a narrow, rectangular area, with the four sides enclosed by perpendicular Islands. The lake is a system containing 3 wide and round pits, connected with each other with a narrow and winding tunnel. Stalactites hang from the ceiling in a number of odd, colored forms. The silence is disturbed only by the sounds of the ship’s oars. On the island are numerous species of plants like orchids, benjamin figs, banians and cycads, which blossom through the year.

It is worth a visit Ba Ham Lake

It’s also the house of yellow haired monkeys, birds, flying squirrels and bats. Beneath the dark blue surface of the water are the revived lives of fish and shrimp. Even though 25 km from the coast, it’s for ages considered an ideal tourist area. The entry is a spacious semi circular hole in the apartment rock wall on the north west of the island to 5 m over the sea.

Beginning from the entry, tourists enter the first tunnel, which boasts a forest of stalactites and stalagmites in various shapes with beautiful colours.

They fall on the surface of the water, like the roots of banyan or ficus trees. The deeper one pushes to the tunnel, the darker it becomes. The river is heavy yet so apparent one can see schools of fish swimming pools. Some 100 m from the entry one finds that a beam of light from the roof of the tunnel, which shows different sorts of orchids clinging on the cliff, cycads growing everyday. At the southeast cliff of the second tunnel there grows an old carambola tree, which bears fruit all year round.

Visitors can locate groups of monkeys, flying squirrels silver or gold headed parrots gathering in its own branches. Lying one cliff away from the second one, the 3rd tunnel is home to different species of bats and butterflies.
