Introduction to Tuyen Lam lake

Tuyen Lam Lake  is located in Da Lat city, Lam Dong province. The lake is located about 6km south of Da Lat city center, surrounded by purple streams and majestic Elephant mountain. Currently this is the largest freshwater lake in Dalat.

Lake was first discovered by Mr. Farraut – a French farmer from the 30s of the last century. During the war, the lake became the Suoi Tia resistance base zone, also known as Quang Trung area. In 1987, Lam Dong Irrigation Company quit the construction of a dam across the Tia stream. Since then, the name Ho Tuyen Lam was born with the meaning of “charming immaturity”.Discover the dreamy beauty of Nam Thien the first in Tuyen Lam lakeTuyen Lam Lake – Nam Thien first lake
