Main Attractions of Huguang Cliff National Scenic Spot

Huguangyan Lake

One of the greatest attractions in the park is Huguangyan Lake, the only maar lake formed in a crater in China. With lush vegetation, the park has a high concentration of negative oxygen ions, and thus called “a natural oxygen bar.” While walking along the lake, you will feel very refreshed from the air. It’s worth mentioning that you can walk under the crater when you visit the geopark, a very rare experience that you may not miss.

Dragon fish turtle

The statue of dragon fish and tortoise in Dongmen Square is based on the legend of dragon fish and tortoise in Lake light rock. Since more than 60 students in the General Class of National Defense University first discovered the miracle of dragon fish more than 4 meters long and tortoise nearly 2 meters wide roaming the lake in the legend of Huguangyan on May 28, 1998, many tourists have witnessed the presence of big turtles and big fish in the lake. For this reason, the statue of dragon fish and tortoise was built in Dongmen Square of Huguangyan.
