Hongfeng Lake Scenic Area

Last updated by fu yong at 2014/11/3

Hongfeng Lake is the largest artificial lake on the Guizhou Plateau. Its covers an area of 57.2 square kilometers and is twelve times the size of the Ming Tombs Reservoir in Beijing and six times as large as the famous West Lake in Hangzhou. The lake takes its name from the many maple trees on the surrounding mountain ranges whose leaves turn red every fall.


The scenic area consists of four parts: the North Lake, the South Lake, the Rear Lake and the minority ethnic villages.
The North Lake is the smallest and is famous for its islands such as Bird Island, Snake Island and Tortoise Island. Along the shore there is an historic complex of ancient tombs dating from the Western Han Dynasty.


The South Lake is noted for its caves, including the General's Cave, Fishing Cave and Underground Cave. The Rear Lake is renowned for its picturesque countryside. The paths along the shoreline offer opportunities for leisurely walks to admire the beautiful scenery.


The ethnic villages contain interesting examples of village architecture, including a DiaoJiaolou (Miao traditional house), a Buyi flagstone house and a Dong drum tower that features a roofed bridge. The drum tower can be reached by boat. In accordance with village custom, visitors can be assured of a warm welcome, so much so that they may be reluctant to leave.
