Lake Pauh is actually a volcano lake, means the lake was formed from volcano activities. Situated in Jangkat Regency, an administrative area to Merangin Regency, western Jambi. The location is approximately 95 km westward Bangko, the capital of Merangin Regency and can be reached by vehicles.

The lake elevation is about 1,200 meters above the sea and have about 20-25 meters depth. With very rare waves, this lake is like a very big deep blue pond.
