Ba Be Lake is a place with some of the most wonderful scenery in Vietnam. The lake is in Ba Be National Park, which is about 250km North of Hanoi. It is near Bo Lu and Pac Ngoi villages, the home of Tay ethnic people. Ba Be Lake is on a limestone mountain, at a height of 150m above sea level. As it looks similar to Halong Bay, the lake is also called "Halong Bay on the mountain." It has a water surface area of 500ha. It is more than 8km long, nearly 2km at its widest, and 20-35m deep. The lake is made up of three river branches - Pe Lam, Pe Lu and Pe Leng.
