Cheow Larn Lake

Cheow Larn Lake was billed as "spectacular" and they didn't lie. Well worth the effort to get here.

Our first activity at Cheow Larn Lake was a scenic boat ride in a (large) traditional longtail boat. Getting the boat ticket looked complicated; we were glad our guide was doing it, not us! That’s Pearl, our guide on the right. 

The lake is surrounded by karst mountains. I’m happy we’re seeing these. Now maybe I can skip the Guilin mountains in China.

Here’s our group on the boat.

The scenery is beautiful everywhere you look. 

Here's a monkey we didn't see because we were on the wrong side of the boat. Another passenger took the photo for us.

Toward the end of the tour we started seeing lake camps. Our destination is the one bottom right.
