湖光岩玛珥湖Huguang Lake


In 1997, the Chinese and German scientists investigating, Huguang Lake is about 14-160000 years old, making by the ground after cooling sink formation volcanic explosion of er type volcanic lake, the lake is over 400 meters deep.(1997年,经中德科学家考察确定,湖光岩玛珥湖是距今14—16万年前由平地火山爆炸后冷却下沉形成的玛珥式火山湖,湖深400多米。)【This section has used translation machine to translate O(∩_∩)O ~】


Nine big mystery of Huguang Lake(湖光岩的七大谜)
【I don’t know whether all of these are true or not, of course, some of it are real╮(╯▽╰)╭】
A、Leaves near the Lake without their trace.(湖面落叶无影无踪);
B、The central water level of the lake is lower than the lakeside 30 cm.(湖中心水位比湖边低30公分);
C、During June to August, when it’s about 1-2a.m., water more than ten meters high will rise from the middle of the lake.(6-8月份,夜间1-2点,湖中间冒出十多米的水柱);
D、There is no frog, leeches or snakes in the 2.3 square kilometers lake, but it has plenty of fish and shrimp and huge turtles. (2.3平方公里的湖里没有一个青蛙、蚂蝗、蛇却有大量的鱼虾,甚至有巨大的神龟龙鱼出没);





E、When you are in the south of overhead of the moutain lake, you will feel shake of dark, on the contrary, sober and relaxed in the north.(进入湖南边山顶上一带有50%的人感觉到阴阴沉沉,而是在湖的北边就感觉到清醒和有一种轻松的感觉);
F、Skin becomes white after swimming in the lake.(下湖游泳、泡水皮肤变白);
G、The big turtle has saved many people who has near-drowning in the lake.(大龟在湖里救过了许多溺水的人。)














I suggest, if you take a visit to Huguang Lake, I think it’s most fun to ride a bike around the lake, enjoying the sunshine, the feelings of the lake wind. What’s more, when you are tired, you can get off your bike and have a footbath in the lake or go to the nearby ground to have a picnic, or just go in to the surrounding historical building and take some photos.
