About Qiandao Lake
What are marvelous about Qiandao Lake are the crystal-clear water and the 1,078 islets scattering in the lake for which it was named for. Located in Chun’an County, Qiandao Lake is two hour's drive from downtown Hangzhou. It’s the largest man-made lake in east China. There used to be two towns with people living in right where the lake is now. After the construction of the huge dam of Xin’an River Hydropower Station, the former two towns were flooded and residents were evacuated. Those islets now in the lake were actually mountains. Now the site of the village still rests underwater, well-preserved.
Meifeng Island is situated on the Zhuangyuan Peninsula at the west side of the Central Lake Area of Qiandao Lake. Known for scattering islands, zigzag creeks and harbors in the area and great eco-environment, it is has been established as the Level One Attraction of Qiandao Lake. Ascending the sightseeing platform on the island, people can have a panoramic view of over 300 islands, which makes the island the best place to view the Qiandao Lake. There prevails a saying that “Without ascending Meifeng Island to view the panoramic view of Qiandao Lake, you didn’t know the true beauty of Qiandao Lake.”
