as a deep water lake, ****ing lake is the largest fresh water man-made lake in anhui province, and situated between the yellow mountains and jiuhua mountain. it extends 80 kilometers from east to west, which is roughly the same distance down the li river from guilin to yangsuo, and covers an area of about 100 square kilometers. ****ing lake is quite young, it’s not on the map until 1970 that a dam was built on qingyi river, which is a branch of yangtze river. a reservoir was formed when the dam was completed, and called chencun reserve.
to better promote it and develop the tourist industry here, this reservoir was renamed lake ****ing in 1979, for most part of the lake lies in ****ing county that is today’s huangshan district. in chinese, ****ing means peace or peaceful. so it can be also called lake peace, or lake ****inghu.
