Strolled up here at 7am and sat in one of the porch style seating areas that branch out into the lake. Watched the sun roll up from behind the mountains and clouds and could have stayed there forever! Also a very nice market of local food was popping from about 6pm.

The lake was just another... More

You can spend half day by walking , feeding fish and relaxing aorund lake. It is not so special. But a good option to relax and spend your day without doing nothing.

I wouldn't go all the way to Mae Hong son to visit this lake but if you're in the city it is a nice calm place to do a walk. During daytime you can buy some fishfood to feed the vast amounts of fish that are waiting for it at the pavilion. During nighttime you can enjoy the acrobatics of... More

It's something nice to look at while eating at a near by restaurant, though there is nothing that calls out to passerbys from either the lake of the adjacent temple.

Very pretty lake, very clean. Saw fish jumping. Good place to cool off, with a selection of restaurants and bars across the road. Well worth a look.

It's a nice lake. It's a nice lake to sit down on warm evening and relax. For the rainy days there is a little dock with a shelter where you can sit and wait for the rain to stop.
