Ta Dung Lake is situated in Ta Dung National Park of Dak P’lao and Dak Som communes in Dak G’long District. With a 20,000 ha water surface and more than 36 islands, the lake and its surrounding park serves as the natural habitat of many species of birds.
Given its islands, the lake is called "a miniature Ha Long Bay in Central Highlands". Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO heritage site in the northern province of Quang Ninh.
Ta Dung Lake is part of the UNESCO-recognized Dak Nong geopark. The 4,760 sq.km geopark is located in the districts of Krong No, Cu Jut, Dak Mil, Dak Song, and Dak G'long along the Krong No River.

Vo Thi Hoai Huong, a member of the camping group, said: "I was greatly saddened by the huge amount of trash we encountered on our trips. Nature is not a hotel with dedicated cleaners. I hope all travel enthusiasts would gain a better awareness of keeping nature clean."
