Baihua Lake

Baihua Lake

By Kelly PangUpdated Oct. 1, 2021

It is located in the northwest suburbs, about 22 kilometers from the downtown area. This is a man-made lake with more than 100 charming islands, covering an area of 83 square kilometers. The scenic area features Karst landscapes and crystal-clear waters. And it has the nickname of "Mini Guilin"(a famous tourism city in China).

There are more than 50 scenic spots here and 23 of them are open to visitors. The best-known ones are Yanbei Gorge, Yanbei Peak, Jinyin Gorge, Mogu Peak, Hongwu Gorge and Hongwu Temple. There are also limestone caves on some of the islands.
Bird lsland is one of the most famous one, a natural habitat of different kinds of birds. When spring comes, hundreds of birds float over the island, which makes it a fantastic view for the visitors.

Another feature of the lake is the village sites, situated along the lake. In the evenings, when fishermen finish their job and park their boat at the bank, cooking mist rising from the house, it looks like a fine Chinese traditional wash painting.
