Dianchi Lake

With an area of about 300 square kilometers, Dianchi Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Yunnan Province and the sixth largest one in China. It also enjoys a high reputation as 'A Pearl on the Plateau' for its picturesque scenery and its location on the Yungui Plateau. Unfortunately, the lake has been badly polluted. Although efforts have been made continuously to save this lake, they have been largely unsuccessful.

This crescent-shaped lake is about 39 kilometers long and 13 kilometers wide. Besides, it is surrounded by four hills, and over 20 rivers nurture this lake which has a shoreline of 163.2 kilometers. Visitors may appreciate the beauty of the lake and hills from a boat, and explore this cradle of Yunnan culture.
