NONG PAPHA (TURTLE LAKE)
This is a natural lake in Ban Done Deng (Done Deng Village). It is believed that ghosts in the spiritual house protect the turtles in the lake. There are many turtles of different sizes and ages living in the lake and they can easily be seen. Local residents also sell food that you can feed the turtles with. Also locally made turtle-shaped key holders are sold in front of the entrance.
