Erhai Lake

Erhai Lake lies two kilometers northeast of Dali, Covering an area of 250 square kilometers and an average altitude of 1,966 meters. It is one of the seven biggest fresh water lakes in China and the largest highland lake next to Dianchi Lake in Kunming. So it earned the fame of "Plateau Pearl".
The lake looks like a huge silver mirror under the sun. The limpid lake and the snow-covered Mt. Cangshan in the west add radiance to each other. Therefore, they are described as "Silver Cangshan and Jade Erhai". At the clear night, the moon is mirrored in the lake, this scene "Erhai Moon" is one of the four best sights of Dali.
There are three islets, four sand bars, five miniature lakes and nine curvatures, all of which are worth visiting.
