Arrival at lake and campsite

Qiandao Lake lake with the 1000 islands

We arrived at Qiandao Lake a little bit late and what you will see during the day, is purely depends on how early you come. 9:00 is the preferable time to purchase the tickets if you want a full-day trip. There are different lengths of trips with a duration of 4-7h hours, and the length will also determine how many islands you will be hopping. Our trip took about four hours, and it included two islands. The cost was 180CNY/person, and a reminder, take some snacks with you. The shop on the boat has a very limited selection, and the pricing is on the higher side. Don’t dream of visiting all islands as there are 1,078 large islands on the lake, and a few thousand smaller ones are scattered across it. The islands in the lake include Bird Island, Snake Island, Monkey Island, Lock Island (supposedly the world’s biggest lock), and the Island to Remind You of Your Childhood.

Visited two islands in Qiandao.

The first Huangshanjian island and the second island was Paotai Mountain at Green Grass Wudao island also known as Bird Island

Stairs, stairs, and stairs. That is the common way to visit famous places in China. Good for the health and maybe lose a few kilos. The sausages from the local shop shot down my thinking of losing weight. There was plenty to do, for example feeding fish on top of the mountain, having a peaceful walk in the forest, and hopping on the stones at the small waterfall. The scenic Pavilion had a great view of the area, and you could see many of the islands and take a break there. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor, but at least it was not raining.

Bird island had several birds in cages, and what can you say? Small cages or short chains with big birds are beyond my interest and enjoyment. I wish at least they should have more space. The island itself was enjoyable and had some nice views.

We gladly recommend visiting Qiandao Lake.

The next place is 36 County Rural Resort Hotel camping, more of that in my next post.
