During the cool season this lake will be shrouded in fog especially during the morning hours. Regardless it is the very heary of the city.

A lovely view to the temple from the lake. The lake it self is not big though beautiful. A easy walk around it. You can feed the fish if you choose. Very pretty indeed

The lake in Mae Hong Son is a small lake. It's nice to stop over and enjoy the lake. At night there will be small stalls near the temple and you have a chance to eat and drink with a view on the lake.

Nice area to relax, though more of a pond than a lake, the area also has a temple and a lot of nice restaurants.

I was looking forward to the night markets and things going alive in the evening but sadly we came in their slow season and the market is not on. It still is a quite small lake to walk around and feeding the fish was fun.

Hi there, as the other people have indicated it's about 4 hours or so by bus - very lovely as long as you are not barfing all the way as it is a very very hairpin bendy ride. Mae Hong Son is one of my most favourite places... More
