NONG TAO (TURTLE LAKE)
This lake was originally constructed for rice paddy irrigation and is now home to beautiful lotus blooms, bathing water buffalos, migratory birds and local people working in the paddy fields. Unfortunately, the lake no longer contains turtles though.
How to get there: This lake is in Kaisone Phomvihanh Town. From That Ing Hang (Ing Hang stupa) through Ban Phonesim (Phonesim village), continue along the same road for about 3 kilometers and you will see the lake which is sign posted on your right-hand side.
The site is always open, but it is recommended to visit between 08:00am-06:00pm.
