Rambling serene paths along a staircase, we can see the verdant willow shadows, the rippling lakes, the misty flower gardens which set off one another, exquisite terraces and lightly floating boats. Taking delight in the beautiful scenery that you’ll find difficult to turn away from. Then at late spring, the light catkin wafting around the lakes, well known as the scene of the snow in sunny days in the Willow Lake Park, is one of the eight sights in Pingliang.

The lake originates from the Warm Spring, with a stone tablet standing beside, in which Zuo Zongtang (a famous Chinese general in Qing Dynasty) has inscribed above two big characters ’Warm Spring’ and below an epigraph that ‘Pingliang is cold for its height, and the same is true to the springs; while the spring here is warm, even in cold winter, it is not frozen.’. ‘

The sun is shining on the lake, from where the snowflakes come? Pieces of snowflakes wafting by the wind, looks like the small pieces of the silver flying in the air. In the moonlight, you doubt that they may wet your close but actually not; and when you face the wind, you feel no cold. As the Willow Lake share the beauty of West Lake, it inspired many poets.’ That’s an old eulogy to the scene of light catkin wafting which appears to be the snow in sunny days.
