The Qiandao Lake, One-Thousand-Isle Lake, embedded in the land of Chun’an County, was a man-made lake formed because of the building of the dam in 1950 by Xin’anjiang Hydraulic Power Plant which was the first large-scale designed station equipped with self-made equipments. The lake was put on the list of the first 44 national-level scenic spots. It is not only the biggest national-level forest park in China, but also a pearl on the golden travel line from Hangzhou to the Yellow Mountain. It was crowned by tourists as the No. 1 place of “Top Ten Beautiful Scenic Spots in Zhejiang”, one of the Top Ten Leaders in Forest Park of China, and one of the three most popular places on the travel line from Taiwan to the mainland.
