Baofeng Lake - Photos by Frank Chen, Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, China
Baofeng Lake is 2 kilometers south of Suoxi Valley Nature Reserve. There is a deep and serene valley and the pellucid lake reflects a picture of verdant mountains. Here, the lake and the mountains serve as a foil to each other. The most distinctive spots include Gaoxia Pinghu (lake on the high gorge), Yingwo Guzhai ( the ancient village), Juebi Feipu (the waterfall on the cliff) and Yixiantian Valley (narrow valley). In 2003, it was ranked as AAAA tourist spot in China.
