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.

The small (you can easily walk around in 20 minutes) lake is essentially the center of Mae Hong Son. Two of the main sights (two temples) are directly at the shore of the lake. In the evening there are many food stalls around the lake....More

The small lake is one of the most pleasant locations in town, especially at night with the thriving night market and food stalls.

This lake is so romantic in the evening for a stroll. It is small and beautiful. You can enjoy dinner lakeside on the walking street.

I reccomend visiting the lake in the evening when all the street stalls are set up and the temples are lit up reflecting beautifully on the lake. If you go early in the evening, you will withness the crowds all freeze in their tracks at...More

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
