Occupying an area of 300 square km, the lake, 150km in circumference and 40km from north to south, is the sixth largest fresh water lake in China. Being a highland lake with an elevation of 1885 meters, the lake is also reputed as a "Pearl of the Plateau." Four surrounding hills contribute to the picturesque landscape, making visitors intoxicated and linger around.
