Guide about Ba be
Considered as the eighth national park of Viet Nam, Ba Be National Park is a valuable natural heritage. Covering more than 23,000 hectares, this beautiful region is a tropical rainforest area with over 410 named plant species and 300 wildlife species. It is surrounded by steep mountains up to 1554m high.

Ba Be National Park, or according to the mass, is simply called Ba Be (three lakes). In fact, this is the park’s main feature. Ba Be is three linked lakes, which have a total length of 8 km and a width of about 400m. The deepest point in the lakes is 35m. Nearly 50 kinds of freshwater fish reside there. Ba Be Lake is covered with many limestone mountain chains, which have numerous of caves and under-streams.

Puong Cave, 30m high, 300m long, with a navigable river inside – a part of Nang River, is an interesting place to visit by making a boat trip. Thousands of flitter-mice living in this cave generate many powerful odors.

Nang River flows at the foot of the limestone mountain, goes through Puong Cave to reach Ba Be Lake. It is navigable for 23 km between a point 4 km above Cho Ra and Dau Dang Waterfall, which consists of a series of spectacular cascades between perpendicular walls of rock.

Ao Tien is a small lake o­n the top of the mountain. The climate around here is very cool and fresh. Legend said that the fairies above always go down in this place to swim and play chess. Therefore, people name this place Ao Tien (the lake of fairy).

Ba Be Lakes

Location: Lie in the middle of a vast limestone mountain range of Ba Be District, Bac Kan Province, 240km from the north-west of Hanoi.
Characteristic: Being dubbed a "precious jade of Vietnam and o­ne of 500 lakes recognised as worthy of attention.

Ba Be itself is actually three smaller lakes joined together – Pe Lam, Pe Lu and Pe Leng. The climate is cool with an average temperature of 22ºC. The best time to visit the area is during the dry season, which is during winter and spring. The area was established as a national preserved forest and tourist center in 1978.
Ba Be Lakes area has a lot to offer, including waterfalls, rivers, valleys, lakes, and caves all set amidst picturesque landscapes. Ba Be Lakes are surrounded by many ancient trees, from which several varieties of precious wood are obtained. Up to 30 animal species such as wild pigs, bears, panthers, monkeys, and birds inhabit the area.

Ba Be Lakes, located 145m above sea level, are among the largest natural lakes in Vietnam with a total surface area of 500ha. The surface of the lake was tranquil – a beauty spots if ever there was o­ne, in this land of so much beauty. Visitors will have an unforgettable stay in the mountains by the lakes, enjoying sightseeing boat trips, hikes, and water sports.

From Ba Be, tourists can visit other neighboring scenic attractions such as Dau Dang Fall, Puong Cave, and Tien Pond. Passing by Puong Cave (30m high, 300m long), cruise past the villages of Tau, Cam and Hua Tang, and navigate the way through the river’s forks and brooks, tourists will reach Dau Dang Falls. Catch the breath: it’s worth it. They fall, they drip, they cascade. Take a pick of superlatives. Take a pick of times of day for paying a visit. The falls laps over 1,000m o­n three levels, each bursting with energy from the mountains that help fuel them.

Ba Be Lakes in Bac Kan province

Babe lakes in Caobang Vietnam  

The road from Thai Nguyen to Bac Kan is in pretty good condition and passes through some very scenic areas, esp. the bowl-shaped tea hills. Among all the regions planting green tea for domestic use and export in Vietnam, Thai Nguyen offers the best and sometime you may mistake that the Vietnamese is keen on foreign products if they mention about the excellent "Thai tea".

The only real sight in Bac Kan is Ba Be Lakes, 230km from Hanoi and 80km to the Northwest of Bac Kan town. "Ba Be" means "three seas", an ornate expression which just means the three big lakes. It's several kilometer from Ba Be Guesthouse to the Main Wharf, from which you can rent a boat and turn right to row or run along the Nang River. The river trip is a marvel: there are a clear flow and a muddy flow, which (incredibly) do not mix, on the same riverbed (!); and you can either jump in the clear water for a swim or simply lye on the boat contemplating the wonderful untouched nature surrounding with bamboo clusters, lianes and flowers along the riversides and watching the fishermen in their piraguas fishing aquatic products. After 3km you will reach Puong Cave, a mysterious sight with twilightful stalagtites and stalagmites, which seems like the end of the river. But if you meander by boat some 300m inside, the river will be finally opened and you escape from the cave. It takes you an hour more to reach Dau Dang Waterfall that is quite sightworthy. Reaching the lakes is going upstream from Dau Dang, turning right to a small flow, then going ahead 1km more. The Lake Zone, 8km long and 3km wide, set in a picturesque national park and contain 3 lakes surrounded by vertical rock walls, from which many currents fall down between many kinds of creepers cling, and a wild forest where many species of birds abound. If you have time, you can also have another visit to a village-on-stilt by taking a boat from the Main Wharf and turn left, go for 4km till you reach the small village's watering place and get some experience of a working day of the farmer and fishermen over here.
