Baofeng Lake Scenic Area is part of the larger Wulingyuan Scenic
Area, one of the world's natural heritages. It is situated at the
back of Mount Baofeng, with an area of 274 hectares. It is composed
of Baofeng Lake and the Yingwo Stockaded Village. The natural
beauty of the lake and the mountain and the human culture and
landscape complement each other.
Baofeng Lake features beautiful natural scenery. It is located in
the mountains, with abundant water and fresh air. Green trees and
stone peaks of various shapes surround the lake. There are also
marvelous running waterfalls, pouring out like troops from heaven
descending to the world. Yixiantian Valley, which is less than 4
meters wide on average, is another wonderful scenic spot. Only a
line of the sky can be seen from the bottom of the valley, which
resembles a silk thread, seemingly long and thin. The length,
narrowness, and depth here are rare in national scenic spots.
Mount Baofeng, nearby, with a height of 1,212.8 meters, points
straight up to the sky. The Yingwo Stockaded Village is
strategically located in terrain with difficult access. Reaching
the top of the mountain, you can look down upon many smaller
peaks. Within the green background is Baofeng Temple, in
graceful ancient color and style, half hidden, half visible, and
radiating the ethos of religious culture.
The calm Lake Baofeng lies as a goddess, outstanding and pure,
projecting a sense of peace. If you boat in the lake, you will see
the reflection of the marvelous stone peaks and green trees, in
symmetric display. It is a great pleasure.
