Xinaghu Lake

Xianghu Lake_02.jpg

Located in Hangzhou’s Xiaoshan District resides the peaceful Xianghu Lake also known as the sister lake to the West Lake. Shining like two pearls in Hangzhou’s heavenly earth both lakes overlook each other while the Qiantang River gazes in between. Shaped like a gourd Xianghu Lake is set in a serene environment which, overflowing with picturesque scenery, age-long history and profound culture, never gets flooded by crowds.

Xianghu Lake_04.jpgAs the cradle of Zhejiang civilisation and the battle field of Wu and Yue – two ancient states during the Spring and Autumn Period (771 BC – 476 BC), Xianghu Lake has unearthed a wealth of history and today immerses you into a world of modern day discoveries. Apart from its eye-catching and note-worthy scenic areas, spotted during the day, Xianghu Lake at night soaks up a more ambient setting. Throughout the night the lake’s calm waters can be seen to quietly reflect the moon’s soft beams and to witness Xianghu Lake aglow with wonder, then a tour either by boat or tourist car, is enlightening for all to see.
