Jingbo Lake

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Jingbo Lake is located in a national park some 150 kilometers east of Harbin near Mudanjiang. This lake is a volcanic barrier lake. The lake is almost 50 kilometers long and 40 meters 130 foot deep in places and bounded by beautiful mountains. The striking Diaoshui Lou Waterfall is also located close by. During Heilongjiang's short hot summers, this lake is a popular area for boating, walking, fishing or simply calming. According to a legend, a beautiful and kindhearted girl named Hongluo lived here.
The Mirror Lake is, in fact, a dammed lake caused by an antique volcanic eruption during which the Mudan River was blocked by lava. Covering 1,200 square kilometers, the quiet and clear lake is bounded by towering mountains and dense forests. Water flowing out from the north bank of the lake forms a waterfall called Diaoshuilou, the largest in Northeast China. This superb fall, twenty-five meters high and forty-three meters wide, thunders down a precipice to a deep pool underneath. The grotesquely-shaped pearl corks and an underground forest where trees raise in the crater of four volcanoes add to the lure of the surrounding wilds.

Jingbo Lake is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
