Bien Ho (sea lake) is a must-see destination for visitors to the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai thanks to its picturesque beauty and serenity.
Locals called Bien Ho as T’Nung Lake that means the sea on a mountain. Tourists can admire the romantic scenery of pine trees along the way to Bien Ho before they enjoy tranquility at the lake. At the lake, they can go fishing, cruise around, try delicious fish dishes and more importantly get moments of peace.
The oval-shaped fresh water lake covers 230 hectares and is 7 kilometers from the center of Pleiku City. The lake, whose depth is from 20 meters to 40 meters, is considered as the most important lake to supply fresh water for residents of the city.
According to scientists, Bien Ho is the mouth of a volcano that has stopped erupting for millions of years.
