Baofeng Lake Scenic Area, Zhangjiajie Reviews

  • Nice boat ride around the lake whilst guide describes the scenery and gives you some insight into the local minority villagers customs. Takes about 30 minutes. You can walk up or take a bus. Enjoyable but not the most breath taking part of the area.

  • Worthless, time stealing, there's much more beautiful around. Entrance fee almost 100RMB, all you do is jump on a bus, get in a boat, make a ridiculous 10min. circle and go back by bus. Additionally, there's some kitsch singing in traditional garment. Just stay away.

  • Shape imagination while enjoying the lake view along with different rocky mountains is the main adventure of the Chinese traditional boat journey through the lake. The lake has an average depth of 72 meter with an maximum depth of 169 meter approximately. Mountain love songs are one of sweetest parts to enjoy the boat journey, sung by male & female, individually, they wait in two separate cottages located at the feet of mountains & when any boat crosses their cottage they start to sing loud to cheer the tourists. It also includes a bus journey through the snaky mountain road. At the terminal point, there is also a natural flow of a large amount of water coming down to mountains feet. A small pond exists there, colorful fishes swim to get some adore from the cheerful tourists. A baby fish, age of almost 70, lives there in a pond, people gives him coins & notes to make fulfill the wishes they want. A baby fish lives nearly around 150 years of life span. It's about 4 feet in length & 12-15kg in weight. Moreover, you may have an amazing visit to Baofeng Lake for half a day if you plan to go there in near future.
