Bau Trang: a small Sahara desert in Binh Thuan
Mui Ne White Sand dunes is also known as Bau Trang (white lake). Bau Trang is a famous landscape located about 30 km North East of Mui Ne Center. It is a fresh-water lake formed long ago and located amid endless sand hills.
Bau Trang is divided into two parts by a sand hill, called Bau Ong (Mister Lake) and Bau Ba (Lady lake).
Long time ago, the Cham came here and use the water from this lake. The Cham people built Yana temple to thank this lake. It has become the source supplied for man and animals.
When the Cham people left here, the temple did not remain intact. Now it only exists as a clue in south Bau Trang marking a historic period about the process of conquering nature before the Viet people arrived.
Besides the sand and pure water, Bau Trang has a lotus lake located in the center of the sand mountain. Along the lakeside, a lot of lotuses are growing. In the summer, lotuses in bloom complement the sand mountain in a blaze of color. Lotuses grow naturally, and bloom in almost seasons.
According to the residents in Bau Trang, the creature system here is very rich, with fresh fish or a thirty kilogram carp or crocodile. The last crocodiles here were caught 25 years ago. Annually, the residents here harvest tons of kernels to build jam and lotus tea in the holiday.
Come to Bau Trang, you can rent a boat to go sightseeing or enjoy a view from the center of the lake or even fish when you are on boat. If you want to take bath, the water here is fresh enough for you to relax.
If you want to have a place to build the tent and go picnic there, it’s also possible in the north side with willow forest, and you can sleep with a hammock or sing a song with your friends. Bau Trang is a must when you come to Mui Ne.
