Fuxian Lake, Chengjiang County

4.7
#5 of 28 in Wildlife in Yunnan
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.

    First of all to a large estuarine wetland in fuxian Lake, the scenery is good but artificial built, not good. Then take a bus to Lu AAAA scenic spot filled, 20 Yuan ticket to enter the area, a very lively and beautiful scenery, Shiba Persil reflecting the sky, a nipple in a Beacon Hill mountain to jiaobi, a bright sun, Lake fish Qing huan. Feel very comfortable. Settled in King House, fresh beauty, and good nature and leisure time

    Livable if you have time to stay here for a few months, the twittering of the birds in the morning, bursts of steam when the sun shade and cool breezes, really wanted to stop, let lazy pine lazy.

    Fuxian Lake, the ancients called "glass world", crystal clear blue waters of the Lake, very quiet and comfortable. Around the Lake for a week, stop-and-go, take photographs, and then in the Lake jumping, dancing, yoga, cycling, very comfortable.

    A rural natural attraction that boasts a deep water lake that hold China 9% of fresh water. A nice lakeside stone walkway will sure relax you. For biker, you will have to ride on the lakeside 4 lane road that don't have lake view most of the time. If you are used to regular restaurant in city, you may not be able to find much suitable places to eat as I do.
