  • I visited this place during the tsingming festival. It was filled with tourists and feeling very crowded. But the view is fantastic. The lake is not huge, even walking will onky take around 90 minutes. But there concentrates trenmendos of cultural stories, please do invite a guide accompany with the tour. Guided tour worth the cost.
