Fuxian Lake, Chengjiang County

(4.4/5 based on 40 reviews on the web)
Fuxian Lake stretches out through Chengjiang, Jiangchuan and Huaning Counties in Yunnan Province, spanning an area of 212 square kilometers. The lake is ranked third-largest in Yunnan, after Dian Lake and Erhai Lake. Also the deepest lake in Yunnan, it is 155 meters deep at its greatest depth. It is also the third-deepest fresh water lake in China, after Tianchi and Kanas Lake.Flora and faunaFuxian Lake is known for its unique fauna, including many endemic species. However, its relative isolation makes it vulnerable to biological invasions and pollution.Together with other Yunnan lakes (Dian, Qilu, Yangzong, Xingyun, and Yilong), Fuxian is recognized as an ecoregion. Fuxian is one of three major Yunnan lakes with a high number of endemics, the others being Dian (Dianchi) and Erhai. There are 24 native fish species and subspecies in Fuxian Lake, including 11 endemics. The situation for most of these is precarious because they have been negatively impacted by the many introduction of exotic species of fish (26 species), habitat degradation, water pollution, and overfishing. The endemic fish are all cyprinids or stone loaches.

  • 冬天去的,湖边风大,吹得有些冷了,时间久了有点吃不消。湖水没有想象中那么干净,不过也可能和我正在下风向的岸边有关。沿湖开了一圈,周边景色一般。有不少沙滩浴场,不过因为季节关系都关着,显得很萧条。还是适合夏天去。  more »
  • 去的时候人很少,因为是一个小县城的景点,地方也比较偏僻交通不便,所以平常来的人很少。据说这是中国第二大淡水湖,那天天气不错,湖面很平静,抚仙湖就像一位安静恬静的女子  more »
  • 我以前听说过扶仙湖,没看过任何介绍,以为只是一个普通的大湖罢了。今年8月,一个偶然的机会让我领略了扶仙湖的美丽,其实用惊艳更合适一些。扶仙湖的日出和日落都是如此的美奂美仑,让人流连忘返。湖边的原始村庄里好客的村民们总是给你热情的问候,我喜欢在扶仙湖的每一分钟......  more »
