Initially, Suoi Hai Lake was built to hold water from streams flowing from Tan Mountain to provide irrigation water for about 7,000ha of agricultural land in Ba Vi and surrounding areas. thanks to the poetic and peaceful scenery, Suoi Hai Lake became an eco-tourism destination and an ideal place for tourists to rest and enjoy the peaceful natural scenery.
