The 30km-long lake is first known as it is named in the famous song ‘Nguoi di xay ho Ke Go’ (The people who built Ke Go Lake) by musician Nguyen Van Ty.

The lake is a large irrigation work with a water volume of 350 million cubic meters, sufficient for supplying 17,000 hectares of rice, according to VNA

Ke Go Lake is part of the Nature Reserve, the largest of its kind in central Vietnam. 

According to Nhandan, Ke Go Lake is a favorite destination by many tourists on holidays or at weekends. Especially, coming to the site, visitors can offer incense and go sightseeing at the temple dedicated to late General Secretary Le Duan. 

This is a symbolic work reflecting the sacred affection and gratitude of generations of Ha Tinh people for the late Party chief while serving as a red address to educate patriotism and revolutionary traditions for younger generations, and an attractive destination within the series of Ha Tinh’s spiritual and cultural tourism addresses.

The lake is an attractive tourist site where people can go swimming, fishing or hiking.Some mesmerizing moments of Ke Ho Lake:
