If you take a look at the map, you will notice that the Erhai Lake’s form reminds of the human ear. Its huge water surface spreads on more than 96 miles of space. At its deepest point, it is 235 yards deep. Once you find yourself in the location, you won’t know if you are at a lake or the sea. That is how the locals named it – “the ear-shaped sea.”
Erhai Lake is located between Dali and Cangshan Mountain. It is one of the biggest lakes with freshwater in China. Many tourists take the cruise to see the beauties of villages and islands scattered throughout the lake.
