Not romantic, poetic like Xuan Huong Lake in Da Lat or quiet, mellow like Ba Be Lake in Bac Kan, Son La hydropower reservoir has a majestic and unspoiled beauty, especially at sunrise.
Referring to the northwest, many people remember two famous locations: Mai Chau and Moc Chau. However, since two years ago, hydroelectric reservoir attracted many visitors who enjoy exploring and adventuring. Son La hydropower reservoir is about 224 km2, situated on the territory of 3 provinces of Son La, Dien Bien and Lai Chau.
The beauty of Sunrise on Son La hydropower reservoir
Every morning, when the sun is hiding out in the mountains, the clouds still shy on the hills, the pace of life on the lake has started. Water, mountains and people appear under the morning sun. Just looking, you also feel the cool air. A large and beautiful space in the sun of new day will make you become small compared to Northwest’s Natural.
Standing on Highway 279 running through Chieng On, Quynh Nhai and Son La communes, visitors can take in the sight of a vast landscape hidden under the first sunlight of the day because the sun has not yet risen.
