Introduction to Tuyen Lam Lake

  • Opening hours: all day.

Tuyen Lam Lake is the largest artificial lake in Da Lat city, with an area of up to 320 hectares. The lake is surrounded by many lush green trees, creating charming landscapes and cool air that attract a large number of tourists every time they have the opportunity to come to the city of flowers. According to local people, this beautiful Da Lat landscape was first discovered by a Frenchman in the 30s of the last century.

Previously, during the resistance war against America to save the country, this place was a revolutionary base called Quang Trung Area or Suoi Tia Area. In 1987, after national unification, Lam Dong Irrigation Company built and expanded a 235-meter-long dam blocking Suoi Tia. The newly created lake area was originally called Quang Trung Lake, but it was not until later that it was renamed Tuyen Lam Lake.

In 1988, this place was recognized as a National Historical-Cultural Monument. By 2017, it was recognized as a National Tourist Area and became a "must-try" destination for Da Lat lovers. Currently, the entire lake is under the management of SAM Da Lat.
