On the unique wooden dugout canoe, M’nong people row the boat and tell visitors about the legend of Lak Lake. In the past, after a battle between the fire god and the water god, an M’nong Rlam young boy named Y Lak caught a small eel and took him home to grow. Strangely, the eel grew as fast as it could, and soon the pond became an immense lake. The M’nong people called this lake “Dak of Lak”, meaning the water of Y Lak or The Lak Lake today.
