Seven Places for Camping 2019-07-17
As summer begins so does the joy of camping. With snacks, refreshments and friends, at the ready, it’s time to join the crowds and pitch up your tents! Here are seven of the most extraordinary camping places in and around the city of Hangzhou.

Qingshan Lake in Lin’an City

For local people, Qingshan Lake can be generalized in one sentence: trees are growing in the water, boats are moving in the forest, birds are chirping on the branches, and human beings are wandering in the pictures. The rare jade-like forest grows in a one-million-square-meter grassland in the north of Qingshan Lake, and is reputed as being the “most beautiful forest in water in China”.

Nowadays, the crowds are gathered in the Great Marina Grassland of Nishan Bay, and some people think that the lakeside in the Qianshan Lake Great Dam is also a good place to camp. In the wild, near the lake, it is advisable to take your own drinking water, and if camping in the docks, then you can take a boat to appreciate the forest in water and Valentine Island on the inside of Qingshan Lake.

Dongbai Mountain

There are plum forests in the winter and ravines in the summer. Now, it is the most pleasant time of year where you will see the broad alpine meadow, the vast windmills and so on. When it is foggy, boundless meadows and windmills appear indistinct; when the fog is lifted, the sunshine sprinkles itself over Taibai Peak, and the distant mountains and lakes vividly appear. There are many places to set up camp in Dongbai Mountain such as the little house in the peak, the open space beside the little temple and the areas near the reservoir which are, of course, most convenient for water. When night falls, people put up their tents in the light of the stars - enjoying the surrounding peace and tranquility.
