Introduction to Erhai:
The most characteristic of Dali’s natural scenery is the various landscapes composed of mountains and waters. The water mentioned here refers to the Bohai Sea. When you come to Dali, you should go to the seaside to see it anyway.
The ancient name of the sea is called “Yeyu Water”, also known as “Xiyu River” and “Kun Michuan”. It is a plateau lake formed by the collapse of Xiqiao River. Its shape is like an ear. Although the area is not large, the water level is deep. Bigger than the battery.
Cangshan Bohai, mountains and rivers, from the north of Wuyuan County, Jiangwei Township, south to Dali Xiaguan, 1972 meters above sea level, 41.5 kilometers long from north to south, an area of about 251 square kilometers, because the shape of the lake is similar to the human ear, hence the name Bohai. There is a Bohai Park in Tuanshan, the southernmost part of the Bohai Sea, which is a good place to see the scenery of Cangshan and Bohai.
Looking down from the air, the Bohai Sea is like a new moon, quietly lying between Cangshan and Dali dam. Bohai has 3 islands, 4 continents, 5 lakes and 9 songs. The Bohai Sea is a lake with a fault, and the lake is crystal clear and has a high transparency. It has been called “the innocent beauty between the mountains” since ancient times. Legend has it that a huge jade cabbage grows on the bottom of the sea. This blue water of the lake is a drop of jade from the heart of jade cabbage.
