Hongfeng Lake

Hongfeng Lake, Guizhou ToursLocated about 32 km (20 miles) west of Guiyang, the Hongfeng (Red Maple) Lake is one of the most scenic spots in Guiyang City, it covers a water area of 57.2 square kilometers and looks like a shinning pearl on the Guizhou Plateau.

The vast Red Maple Lake, dotted with over 190 islands, is noted for a fascinating natural sight of lake, islands, caves and mountains in karst landform. The most fantastic thing is that the tourists can even find small lakes on some of the islands. There are many red maple trees whose leaves turn red every fall on the surroundings of the lake - hence the name.

The Hongfeng Lake Area consists of scenic areas, namely the North Lake, the South Lake, the Rear Lake and the minority ethnic villages. The North Lake is the smallest and famous for its various islands such as Bird Island, Snake Island and Tortoise Island. Onshore, there are a historic complex of ancient tombs left by the Western Han Dynasty and a Miao King's Camp of the Ming Dynasty (1368 -1644).
