Fuxian lake (抚仙湖; fuxianhu) in Yuxi county, Yunnan province is the second deepest lake in China (after the lake on Chiangbaishan, which is half in North Korea), and also very clean.

Get in[edit]

The main town by the lake is Chengjiang, which lies on the northern edge of the lake and is easily reachable by public bus from Kunming or Yuxi.


  • Lake
  • Mountains
  • Food
  • Stars (before, during or after drinking)


  • Horse riding on the western side of the lake
  • Occasional paragliding goes on in these parts...


By North and along West coast are villages with guesthouses and hotels. Around Luchong village (禄充村) is several five stars hotels under construction. East coast is without tourists (as well as shops!) and hills are great place to camp cause you have amazing view on sunset.

Go next[edit]
