At 9 am, the white clouds are still floating around the mountains surrounding the lake, creating a vaporous scene.
The floating islands and natural stone pillars on the smooth surface of the lake’s waters are considered to be like the limestone islands of Ha Long Bay.
Visitors are sure to be impressed by the 99 continuous mountains that are associated with the legend of a phoenix returning to find a new capital. The most special landscape in the local limestone system is Coc Vai scenic spot (known as a pile used to tie buffalos). This natural stone pillar is attached to the legend of giant man, Tai Ngao, who dammed the water’s flow.
The road to Khuoi Nhi waterfall is pristine with a path through the forests, with streams and many steep slopes. The white fall is beautiful like a silk sheet falling from a height of tens of metres. The water at the foot of the waterfall looks like a veil hiding the secret of the cave inside.
According to volunteers, the natural lake is crowded with people to bathe in the summer. In the October days when the water is quiet cold, visitors can enjoy a very interesting experience: being massaged by fish. The small fish around the edge of the lake flock to poke visitors’ feet.
Na Hang, which can be considered as one of the most beautiful lakes in Vietnam, will become an attractive destination for many visitors.
