The National Park is covered by tropical & semi-tropical evergreen monsoon forest. The bio diversity is rich–50 animal species, over 400 plants and many species of insects, reptiles and birds. The ten seriously endangered animals in the park include two primates, the Black Gibbon and the Tonkinese 'snub-nosed' monkey.

The latter is one of the world’s rarest species and on the brink of extinction. Flora & Fauna International is working with the park authorities and other agencies to save this attractive creature. The lake itself is really three lakes linked by wide channels. Overall, it’s about 9km long and a kilometre across at its widest point, and contains around fifty species of freshwater fish. The surface is nearly always calm, making a boat trip a peaceful experience. In adddition, there are islands & caves to visit.
