I loved the boats - very much in Chinese traditional style - added to the boat ride around the lake - even the two singers that sang to us as we pasted their huts.

Nice forest lake; ok short, pleasant ride. They have a man and a woman who sing Tujia songs as you pass by their pavilions. Possibly fun with children, but not worth an extra trip. It was part of our tour but if we had a...More

It's a nice attraction. Many occasions for taking nice pictures. You can also take a short video of the singers on both sides of the lake. The tour guide doesn't speak english, so if you haven't hire your own guide you may not get much...More

We went there early mornings and it really rained all night, they just opened the boom gate - no water, no water noise or so very little did come down from that waterfall, but all over sudden like it was just switched on, here was the waterfall and the near empty creek bed also had all over sudden water in it. That all this water comes through a hole in the mountain to create a waterfall so suddenly and it comes naturally is a bit of a myth - or is it ?? We also noticed there is a gravel filter on the lakes water exit before the water enters the slightly hidden opening or cave to appear on the other side as the waterfall. It is nice, we liked it, very idyllic even mystic, worth the walk to go up there and looking around - even with the rain we had - but occurring natural ??? .......as nature has created ?? ....we id not buy that!
