    Ho Ba Ham is also famed for its ecological diversity. On the limestone cliffs surrounding the lake, visitors can see a green color of the tropical vegetation which is rich in species. Notably, Ho Ba Ham is a birthplace of three endemic plant species of Halong Bay including Halong Cycad (Cycas tropophylla), Halong palm tree, and Halong Paplliopedilum with yellow color. Besides, don’t be surprised if you catch sight of monkeys, squirrels or rare birds because this has been the place they call home for years.
