10. The other Volcanic Lake, Kirimkot
Around 30 km from Banlung, in the south of Borkeo city, this magnificent and wild lake surrounded by only wilderness. We can't find a better place for a picnic to retrieve yourself with nature. A legend from neighborhood villages proclaim that a dragon is living in this lake, and anyone who is hungry will find any fish he need to sustain himself. But beware, if it is only for commercial purpose, then misfortune will fall on you.
The place is great and would probably unique if Yak Loam haven't existed, but we will recommend you to visit their if only you haven't planned anything else. We have so many different point of interest to check before this one, we doubt you ll have enough time to see it!
9. Reclining Buddha
For travelers who don't know, this is one of the major representation of Buddha. It emblematize the death of Buddha. His followers decide to represent a statue of him which had spread almost everywhere in South East Asia.
The Reclining Buddha is located at the entrance of the city, at the Phnom Svay pagoda. You can go and look at this statue but the must is to come during sunset. Beautiful landscape from the hill overlooking the landscape of the surrounding of Banlung.

5. Grassland, home of the gaur
The largest wild bovid in the world. Probably in serious decline, you need a trekking in Virachey National Park for at least 2 days to get the chance to spot those wonderful mammals. Not as famous as tigers, elephants or rhinoceros, but it doesn't mean that is it still one of the incredible animal that you see in its natural habitat.
You need to deserved spotting the gaur, a trekking with magnificent landscape, 1 or 2 night(s) sleeping in the jungle, early wake up or even night time to be able to see them in their homeland.
This is where tourism can be a great contribution to the conservation of the area, and we hope that we will contribute to promote such a unique experience where those can only seen by documentary.
