Beautiful world of lotus flowers in Baiyangdian

Upon mentioning Baiyangdian in Hebei, China, Chinese people will immediately think of beautiful images of fragrant lotus flowers blooming together in summer and endless reed marshes on the water.

Taking a boat on blue water surface, along endless reed marshes, visitors can visit some nearby famous spots such as pagoda, museum and stop at the Lotus-Flower Dian to watch lotus flowers.  The Lotus-Flower Dian really is a world of lotus flowers. In summer, the Lotus-Flower Dian is filled with numerous lotus flowers blossoming with white and pink colors and giving off fragrance. It is too beautiful to describe.

Baiyangdian is the largest fresh water lake in northern China, 150 kilometers south west of Beijing. In addition to natural beauty, it has various fauna and flora with about 50 varieties of fish and multiple varieties of wild geese, duck and birds. It’s also compared as a bright pearl of northern China.

Besides, Baiyangdian area has revolutionary tradition and long-standing history. During the anti-Japanese war, the Chinese guerrillas, supported by local villagers, wiped out numerous enemies under the cover of luxuriant reed marshes. Here, visitors can visit the museum remaining images about the war and a young national hero named Zhangga. This area is also famous for fish cultivations. In the autumn, when reeds swing with the wind on the water surface, it’s time when local residents are busy with their fish cultivations.

Nowadays, Baiyangdian Lake is being under the threat of water pollution because of a variety of sources, most notably industrial waste emptied upstream, the holding back of replenishing waters into reservoirs by upstream communities, and local fish farming. The cleanup of Baiyangdian is a big problem in agenda of Chinese government and environmentalists.
