Dongjiang Lake Scenic Spots

Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-3

Dongjiang Lake, the pearl of South China, is located at Zixin,Chenzhou City, Hunan Province and is one of the best tourism scenic spots in Hunan. Its total area covers 200 km2 , of which 160 km2 is water. Since the 8.12 billion m3 water is very clear and dozens of islands scatter here and there, it is called “Orient Switzerland”.

 It is also a natural oxygen bar, for the air here is extremely fresh and a little sweet. Standing by the lake, looking as far as you can, you can see a lot of green cypress, dark green firs, and light green pigweed. Their shadow reflects in the water, which makes a beautiful and mysterious picture.

The lake has very nice bright blue water and is often covered in mist, which makes it a nice place to go and see. There are a few restaurants in the main tourist area and you can also do water sports. Nice views are also to be found if you drive around the lake. I would never come just to see the lake, but if you are in Chenzhou you should pay it a visit.
