First of all, actually this lake is not located in Pangkal Pinang. It is in Koba, a city that take 2 hours ride from Pangkal Pinang. There is another kaolin lake in Pangkal Pinang called Danau Biru or the locals called it 'Danau Kaolin Tetli'....More

One of the best lake in Pangkal Pinang. It really good compare the one in Belitung, because we could go down to take a picture. But, you must extra careful because some ppl could fall down.

It is amazing to see blue and green lake adjacent side by side. Surrounding by its white glowing elevated overburden this ex-tin mining soon becoming a famous tourist destination. There also some knick knacks that made it instagramable spots. Cool.
