Ba-Be lake is the centerpiece of Ba Be National Park, a lush and peaceful oasis where the tropical rainforest is relatively well-preserved, as hunting and fishing are restricted, and the villagers receive subsidies not to cut the trees. The lake is 1km wide and 9km long, surrounded by tall limestone cliffs. The local fishermen ride typical narrow dugout boats. Besides the tiny village of Pac Ngoi and a few houses south of the Lake, nobody lives on the shores of the lake. There is no recent development to spoil the scenery. In general, visitors spend the night in Cho Ra (18km).
