East Lake

east lake

Over hundreds of years, the slopes at East Lake were dug into precipices of grotesque forms. Some cliffs stand face to face, some suspend overhead as though they were about to fall, and some form a deep cave. One of the caves is called Tao Gong Cave. Tourists can enter the cave by "Wupen" boat. The cave is like a large well with stone walls piercing into sky. Light is projected through the opening above that a poet with a sence of humour described it as "One sits at the bottom of well and can see the skies; Don't say the lake is small, but it contains the heavens".

If you have a bird-eye view of East Lake, you may find it is very much like a marvelous potted landscape (bonsai). Tourists are intoxicated by the beauty of the natural scenery at East Lake.
