Five Flower Lake, China

From series “Fabulous Nooks of the World with Striking Colorful Shades”
One of the main natural attractions of China is Jiuzhaigou Nature Reserve featuring the incredibly beautiful and mysterious Five Flower Lake. One of its main characteristics is explained by the name of the lake. Its water periodically changes colors and can be yellow, then green, and then blue. Most often, the water is of saturated diamond-blue color. The constant change of color is just one of the features of the lake.

Five Flower Lake, China The nature reserve has several lakes that are usually dry in summer and freeze in cold weather. The Five Flower Lake never freezes even in the midst of the frosty winter, and in summer the water level in it remains constant, despite the lack of rain and hot days. Locals consider the lake to be sacred because of these amazing features. People treat the place with great respect, as a manifestation of higher powers.

All those who attended the amazing natural attraction notice crystal clear water of the lake. Once fallen trunks of trees are perfectly visible there. It’s very difficult to study a bottom of the lake because of them. By assumption of scientists, many of the features can be explained by hot springs at the bottom. However, no such springs have yet been detected. A cave was discovered underwater, as well as a tunnel that connects the Five Flower Lake with other lakes nearby. Travelers will be able to see the reserve that has a lot of interesting attractions, including charming waterfalls and mountains covered with the dense vegetation. Next - Sintra
