Dianchi Lake

Experience Kunming’s Pearl on the Plateau

Set in Anning City of Yunan Province, the Dianchi Lake is nestled at the foot of West Hill, with Daguan Park in north and Jining County in the south. It is 3 miles (5 kilometers) from Kunming City and is the sixth largest inland freshwater lake in China, which is known as the “pearl on the plateau,” and has been a favorable scenic spot since ancient times.

Dianchi Lake, also referred as Kunming Lake, was created due to long-time crustal movement, and it is just over one mile (1,886 meters) above sea level. Embraced by several peaks and alluring waters, Dianchi Lake is just like a sparkling jewel embedded in Kunming. The lake is crescent-shaped, stretching 24 miles (39 kilometers) from north to south and more than 8 miles (13.5 kilometers) from west to east. Occupying an area of 116 square miles (300 square kilometers), Dianchi Lake is the largest lake in China. More than 20 rivers converge into it.

The Dianchi Scenic Area is quite mesmerizing, where natural scenery and human landscape blend perfectly. It can be divided into two districts, namely West district and East district. What makes Dianchi Lake distinctive is that the color of its water changes with the clouds and sunshine of the day. Around Dianchi Lake also lie many places of interest, such as West Hill, Daguan Park, Yunnan Ethnic Village and so on. These featured attractions are all ideal getaways for visitors to get close to nature to relax.
