Dianchi

Dianchi is also known as Kunming Lake, Kunming Pond, and Southern Lake of Yunnan in ancient times. Located at an altitude of 1,886 meters above sea level, the lake is a Plateau lake with beautiful scenery, 40 km long and 8 km wide. The lake water and the sky merging mutually like a city sea, dense mist and rolling water are on the surface of the lake, and the sails are strolling above the water. It is the largest lake in Kunming, claimed to be a pearl on the Yungui Plateau. The west side of the lake is the mountain forest, while on the east side the farm dotted with the fisheries and agribusinesses. Traditional fishing boats still sail on the lake. The most beautiful view appears at dawn and sunset. The ocean-like lake is the best place to go for those people who wish to get away from the bustling city and be close to the nature.
