Thousand Island Lake

  The Xin’an River is in the upper reaches of the Qiantang River,flowing through cities like Chun’an and Jiande. Flanked by a thick forest of trees, the clear river, with many shoals andrapids, winds its way through hilly areas. It is blocked by a big dam within Jiande -- the dam for the Xin’an River reservoir  and powerstation. The reservoir boasts 1078 islets; hence the name 1000-Islet (Qiandao) Lake.This 573-square-kilometer lake, over 100 meters in depth, is 109 times the size of the West Lake in Hangzhou.

  It has a storage capacity of 17.8 billion cubic meters. Surrounded by verdant mountains, the crystal-clear lake is dotted by islets with luxuriant vegetation, like plenty of jadeite in a big mirror.While going boating on the lake, one finds "a lake within hills and a hill within lakes". One can notonly enjoy the boundlessness of Taihu Lake (one of China’s 4 biggest lakes) but also appreciatethe gracefulness of West Lake. The water temperature remains about 14°C, pleasant both in summer and winter.
