Baofeng Lake  

Bofeng Lake

Baofeng Lake Scenic Area is part of the larger Wulingyuan Scenic Area, one of the world's natural heritages. It is situated at the back of Mount Baofeng, with an area of 274 hectares. It is composed of Baofeng Lake and the Yingwo Stockaded Village. The natural beauty of the lake and the mountain and the human culture and landscape complement each other.

Baofeng Lake features beautiful natural scenery. It is located in the mountains, with abundant water and fresh air. Green trees and stone peaks of various shapes surround the lake. There are also marvelous running waterfalls, pouring out like troops from heaven descending to the world. Yixiantian Valley, which is less than 4 meters wide on average, is another wonderful scenic spot. Only a line of the sky can be seen from the bottom of the valley, which resembles a silk thread, seemingly long and thin. The length, narrowness, and depth here are rare in national scenic spots.

Mount Baofeng, nearby, with a height of 1,212.8 meters, points straight up to the sky. The Yingwo Stockaded Village is strategically located in terrain with difficult access. Reaching the top of the mountain, you can look down upon many smaller  peaks. Within the green background is Baofeng Temple, in graceful ancient color and style, half hidden, half visible, and radiating the ethos of religious culture. The calm Lake Baofeng lies as a goddess, outstanding and pure, projecting a sense of peace. If you boat in the lake, you will see the reflection of the marvelous stone peaks and green trees, in symmetric display. It is a great pleasure.
