Tianshan Heavenly Lake
Tianshan Tianchi, also called Tianshan Heavenly Lake, is an alpine lake in Xinjiang, Northwest China, lies on the north side of the Bogda Peak, about 40 kilometers south of Fukang City and 110 kilometers east of Uygur. This crescent-shaped water area deserves its name, Pearl of Heavenly Mountain (Tianshan Mountain). With melted snow as its source, Heavenly Lake enjoys crystal water.
In summer, the beautiful place is an ideal cool resort. Boaters on it see the ever-changing silvery mountains soaring into the blue sky, their slopes highlighted with verdant pasture and flamboyant wild flowers. Fishing at dusk has its own special charm. A day in this fairyland promises restoration. Heavenly Lake, a relic of the Quaternary Period Glacier and its surrounding geological relics, offers science lovers exploring opportunities.
The lake is classified as a 5A scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration.
