The Lake Khao Eto is located at the foot of the Khao Yai National Park and even only a few kilometers from the Palm Garden Lodge.

This lake is a water reserve of the region and gives birth to the waterfalls with the same name. Its level changes depending on the season and the water consumption.

The Lake Khao Eto is a popular excursion area for the inhabitants of the Province of Prachin Buri, but also weekend trippers from Bangkok are often attracted by Lake Khao Eto.

However, the actual highlight at Lake Khao Eto is the time when at sunset the sun slowly disappears behind the forest and makes the lake shimmer with its last sunrays. There is no doubt that this sunset is one of the most beautiful ones of the entire region and it can be enjoyed from the Restaurant "Praykhuan" in a calm evening mood.

The distance to the lake and back to the Palm Garden Lodge can be comfortably done with a Tuk Tuk. The staff at the Palm Garden Lodge gladly organizes a Tuk Tuk for you which then brings you to the lake whenever you want to, it will even pick you up there.
