Shoal Area in the South

After entering the Qinglong gorge, tourists can walk or take the sightseeing bus to the south beach water area with an average depth of 1 m (3.3 ft), which is the best summer resort for boating or rafting. Other water entertainment, such as bumping a boat, can also be done.
When you arrive at the dam, you will see a smooth stone wall in the East. This is the spillway. In July and August every year, the river rises with the abundant rainfall in summer, forming a spectacular waterfall 12 meters (40 feet) wide and 50 meters (165 feet) high. The river roars down like a white dragon dancing in the fog.

The lake covers an area of 70 hectares (172 acres), with a water depth of 50 meters, picturesque boat or speedboat tours in the breeze. Along the way, there are many wonderful scenic spots, including fairyland in the fog, Golden Toad moon watching, hexagonal stone and turtle fairy at the end of the lake. There will be an outdoor swimming pool open in summer and an artificial beach.
