“Did you know that Xiniu lake is also called the Rhinoceros lake? It has such a mystical legend behind it!
It was said that long ago, a Buddhist lama travelled to the lake riding on a rhinoceros.
The lama was on the brink of death but he recovered magically upon drinking the water from the lake!
He refused to leave the lake and ended up staying there forever, this is why Xiniu Lake
translates to ‘Rhinoceros Lake’ in Chinese. How magical is that?
The lake itself already looks so dreamlike. Just look at it!
Its water is so clear that you can see a reflection of the surroundings!
Let’s take a stroll around. It would be a pretty long walk though,
since it is the biggest lake in Shuzheng Valley.”
