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.
