The Beauty of Ang Hamlet

Published:  15:27 Wednesday - February 27, 2013 Participating in the eco-tour of Ang Hamlet in Dong Sang, Commune, Moc Chau District in the northern mountainous province of Son La, tourists will be immersed in the beauty of nature and learn more about the Thai ethnic people’s culture.

One of the most-visited destinations of the eco-tour to Ang Hamlet is a pine forest near a poetic lake that forms a peaceful scene for the hamlet. Here, the lake is considered a mirror of the weather during the four seasons. In the early morning, the lake wears a light mist layer while it looks brilliant with sunlight at noon. 

At sunset, the mist comes back and covers the lake, bringing the cold air of winter. However, the lake is most beautiful on moonlit nights with the shade of pine trees reflected on the water, the whispering sounds of pine trees and sweet melodies from bamboo flutes performed by ethnic young men to call their girlfriends.
