THE ISLANDS OF NAM NGUM LAKE
NAM NGUM LAKE
Nam Ngum Lake is a unique place; unknown by guide books and therefore, unexplored and very authentic. This rare sanctuary offers pleasant surprises and unforgettable experiences for all travelers. Located 90 km north of Vientiane, the capital city of Laos, Nam Ngum Lake is a reservoir created in 1970 after the construction of a dam that produces all the electricity for Vientiane district.
The lake’s main aspect is the charming group of islands that are scattered across it. Because of the construction of the water dam, a huge surface of forest disappeared. But, little by little, nature reclaimed its rights and small islands appeared creating an unexpectedly wonderful place.
Nestled between mountain and forest, Nam Ngum Lake offers multiple activities enabling travelers to experience a region full of endless activities: scuba-diving, camping, trekking, visiting the animal sanctuary, jet-skiing, fishing, kayaking, mini-cruising, exploring fishing villages and many more!
On the road leading to the lake, you will also see typical Hmong villages, waterfalls, and around Vang Sang, unusual cliffs with sculpted Buddhas. In this region of Laos, the change of scenery is amazing.
