Tour Attractions

Nanbei Lake: is the only scenic spot combining mountains, sea and lakes in China, and Zhejiang top ten best leisure resorts. The Nan Bei Lake covers a total area of 45 square kilometers, and consists of four major scenic attractions, namely Hutang, forests, coasts and the ancient town. It is rich in natural resources and cultural landscapes. The lake is surrounded by mountains at its three sides, while leaving one side facing the sea. The lake is divided by a dam, not deep but with twists and turns, into two parts, Nan Lake and Bei Lake. There is an island - Egret Island, located in the central Nan Lake. It is a very good place for enjoying the glorious full moon; there is a piling-up island in the Bei Lake. With the shape of a butterfly, it is named “Butterfly Island”, which is a good place to sip tea.

Tanxianling Ancient Trail: Located in Haining City, Zhejiang Province, it is an amazing hidden trail lasted for thousands of years at the plain area. It is 184.6 meters above sea level. Along the way, you can enjoy the beautiful mountains, the magnificent sea and the clear lake. Especially when arriving at the mountain top, you will be stunned by the combination view of mountains, sea and lake.

Tanxian Stone Town: has a difficult terrain, with two mountains, Nanmu Mountain and Beimu Mountain, clamping at the left and right. On the west of the Stone City they are Huangwan Mountains of Haining, and on the east it is a mountain valley with the length of 3 km which can be accessed only by a small rugged and rough path. Viewed from Nanbei Lake far away, it has the atmosphere of “If one man guards the pass, ten thousand are unable to get through”, thus also recognized as “ Badaling Great Wall in Jiangnan” which was highlighted by the military strategists of all dynasties.
