EAST LAKE (DONG HU)
East Lake (Dong Hu)
6Kms from Shaoxing City, China is the picturesque East Lake (Dong Hu). This crescent-shaped lake is not large. But what it lacks in size it makes up with a mystical beauty. Blessed with a plethora of nature's assets, it looks like a landscaped miniature garden. It is a great combination of grottoes, hillocks, stone bridges, etc. The lake has always been one of the popular tourist attractions. But ever since a tea garden and the aquatic taxi were introduced, local as well as overseas tourists visit the lake in droves to absorb its splendid views. The area called the "Peach Grotto" is definitely a must-see while at the East Lake.
