Last updated by chinatravel at 2015/11/6

Intro to this attraction:

The capability of the Ting Lake is about 1,758 cubic meters. There are five isolated islands in the reservoir which are quite different from each other. The Two Peaks Island is the center, and it divides the reservoir which is 4,900 meters long into two parts. The Two Peaks Island is 500 meters long and 250 meters wide. Because of the changes in the landform, the east of the Island is just like a huge eagle going at the surface of the water. So it is called the Lanneret Attacking the Water. Near the west bank of the Lake is an island which is as long as 700 meters.  The top of the island which stretches into the lake is as wide as 250 meters, but the part near the bank is only 50 meters wide. The whole island looks like a python coming from the White Dragon in the northwest to have water. It is so vivid that the island is called the Python Having Water. Between the Two Peaks Island and the Snake Island, there are three islands respectively in the east, west and north of the Lake with proportional spacing. They have the same shape and size, and are just like three tortoises floating on the surface of the water and fighting with the python.
