Head up to Heavenly Lake of Tianshan, a vast and scenic lake nestled high up in the mountains. Shaped into a crescent form by glacial movement, the body of water has a surface area of 4.9 sq km (1.9 sq mi), and a depth of 105 m (344 ft) at its deepest point. Designated a AAAAA scenic area by China's National Tourism Administration, the dramatic visual effect of the lake and its forested shores, backed by snowy peaks, can be seen from a number of accessible viewpoints, or during a boat trip on the lake itself.
