Poets and tea masters have been coming here for 100's of years. The lake is surrounded witth temples, all of which are amazing. My favorite is the temple of 1000 buddhas. Buddhas carved into the mountain and cave walls. Such a beautiful site. The lake itself, with it's serene walking bridge, is beautiful all year long. Have tea in a proper tea house. If you are into experiencing China, go here. Do not miss Hangzhou. My second favorite site I have seen in China so far.
