The story of building the lake and damming it:

According to the locals, the construction of Sapa Lake was difficult and costly. Over a decade ago, people discovered that the fresh, cool water flowing from Hoang Lien Son Mountain was suitable for building a lake. To attract tourism, the leaders of Sapa town decided to build a lake in the center of the town.

They planned out the design, built a surrounding embankment, and paved roads around the lake. However, a strange and unexpected incident occurred. When pouring concrete to dam the water, the concrete did not hold and flowed into deep caves, unable to hold the water.


The reason for this phenomenon is that Sapa is located at an altitude of 1650 meters above sea level, which is very high, resulting in many mountain caves. To succeed, one must use the alluvial soil from the Red River that has clay and sticky soil components that help retain water.

People have begun to beautify the landscape around the lake by planting willow trees that hang down into the lake, gardens with colorful flowers, and placing stone benches around the lake. When touring around, if tourists feel tired, they can sit and rest on the stone benches while enjoying the scenery.
