Seven Star Crags (Qixing Yan), Zhaoqing

4.0
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Zhaoqing
Take a boat ride to marvel at the natural wonder of Seven Star Crags (Qixing Yan), a special tree-dotted limestone hill formation rising around a lake. Resembling the Big Dipper constellation of seven stars, this area, with its pagodas and fish feeding spots, makes a popular day trip about 4 km (2.5 mi) north of Zhaoqing. Walk along paved scenic paths crossing numerous stone bridges, climb some of the crags, or opt to rent a bike or rowboat. Trees on the lakeshore provide a great deal of shade, while souvenir shops play traditional Chinese music. You can visit a small cave system there or cross a swing bridge at an additional cost.
