Dian Lake (Dian Chi), Kunming

3.0
#4 of 20 in Parks in Kunming
Witness the region's largest body of freshwater at Dian Lake (Dian Chi), a 298 sq km (115 sq mi) fault lake at an altitude of 1,886 m (6,190 ft). Over 20 rivers converge into the ancient tectonic lake, which stands at the foot of West Mountain. Take a ferry ride to cross the lake, then climb uphill or take a cable car in order to get a panoramic view of the lake and Kanmin. Swimming is prohibited due to pollution. Visit an ethnographic museum detailing the life of the Yunnan peoples, or stroll along the shore and feed seagulls with the locals in this popular outing spot.

  • After a long walk in the park, it is actually an open park, not to be misunderstood by the ticket information of the folk village next to you------------Don't buy tickets for the park.
