Fuxian Lake, Chengjiang County
(4.5/5 based on 35+ 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.In total, there are 25 native fish species in the lake, including 12 endemics. The situation for many of these is precarious because they have been negatively impacted by introduction of exotic species of fish, habitat degradation, water pollution, and overfishing. The table below lists endemic species, all cyprinids, that have declined strongly and are rated by the IUCN; some of them may already be extinct.A fungus Dyrithiopsis lakefuxianensis growing on submerged wood has been collected and described as a new species to science from Fuxian Lake, as suggested by its scientific name.

  • 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...... 
  • 国庆节去的抚仙湖,虽然人很多,但比起其他景点来说还算好的了,住宿是在网上订的,当地人自己经营的,我们要求不高,只有干净舒适就好了。住的4楼,从窗户可以看到抚仙湖。这个湖看起来很像海,岸边都有沙子,还可以坐船到湖上玩,湖上的浪很大,有时都会有水浪进船里,不过小朋友觉得很嗨。这个地方还可以骑那种三轮摩托车,很好玩的。 
  • 周边离公园比较近,适合情侣或旅游,我是公务出差,个人觉得不合适,周边有很多餐饮,只是缺乏速食小店,导致我一个人找不到吃的
