Dongping Lake

Dongping Lake (marsh Liangshan) is the only remain of the vast marsh depicted in the novel the Outlaws of the Marsh.

Historically, the lake was known as Dayeze (big and wild lake), marsh of Liangshan and Anshan Lake, and it took on the current name of Dongping Lake from Xianfeng Period in Qing Dynasty.

The lake is a provincial level scenic spot, and is an important stop in the culture tour.

The lake has a total area of 626 square kilometers, and a year-round constant surface area of 209 square meters. The water is 2.5 meters deep on average.

In the past, the lake served as a hub for water transportation, and now it is used to conserve water and control flood. Soon, it will serve as a hub in the east route of the South-North Water Transfer Project.

Dongping Lake is surrounded with mountains on three sides, and it is so picturisque that it is dubbed as “little Dongting Lake”after Dongting Lake, a famous large lake in southern China.
