Fuxian Lake stretches out through Chengjiang County, Jiangchuan County and Huaning County in Yunnan Province, spanning an area of 212 square kilometers. The lake is ranked third largest in Yunnan, right after the Dianchi Lake and the Erhai Lake. Also the deepest lake in Yunnan, it is 155 meters deep at its greatest depth. It is also the third deepest fresh water lake in China after Tianchi Lake and Kanas Lake.

Flora and fauna
Fuxian Lake is known for its unique fauna, including many endemic species. However, its relative isolation makes it vulnerable to biological invasions and pollution.In total, there are 25 native fish species in the lake, including 12 endemics. Situation for many of these is precarious because they have been negatively impacted by introduction of exotic species of fish, habitat degradation, water pollution, and overfishing. The table below lists endemic species, all cyprinids, that have declined strongly; some of them may already be extinct.

Lost city
In 2001 it was reported that earthenware and stonework covering an area of approximately 2.4-2.7 square kilometres had been discovered beneath the lake. Carbon dating circa 2007 confirmed an age of 1750 years, or approximately 257AD. It is thought that the remains may represent buildings from the ancient Dian Kingdom that slid in to the lake during an earthquake.

Luchong Resort nearby Fuxian Lake in Chengjiang
Located in southwest of Chengjiang beside the west bank of the famous Fuxian Lake, Luchong resort is 20 kilometers away from downtown of Chengjiang and 70 kilometers away from Kunming, with only 1.5 hours of riding from Kunming bus station. The resort covers an area of 9.5 square kilometers with 3.2 kilometers coastline. It consists of old fishing village, new Luchong village, Bijia Mountain, and Boxi bay. The resort is surrounded by mountains and Fuxian lake, with Qilin Mountain on its south, Mopan Mountain on its west, Jian Mountain on its north, and Fuxian Lake on its east. The whole area is picturesque, which has nurtured many outstanding personalities in history. Bijia Mountain beside the resort is named after the brush holder of literati and the name of the bay Boxi means peaceful water without winds and waves. It was once a natural wonder here to catch anti-wave fish by piping water with wheel in summer and autumn.


Fuxian Lake

Fuxian Lake is located in boundary area of the Chengjiang County, Jiangchuan County and Huaning County, which is 70km from Kunming. Since most of the lake is in Chengjiang County, it is also called the Chengjiang Lake. The circumference of it is 90.6 kilometers.

Fuxian Lake has a shape of inverted gourd. It covers an area of 212 sqaure kilometers, which is the 3rd largest lake in Yunnan. (The largest lake in Yunnan is Dianchi Lake and the second largest one is Erhai Lake.)

With the deepest point of 157.8 meters and the average depth of 87 meters, Fuxian Lake ranks the 1st in Yunnan and 2nd in China in terms of depth. It is merely second to the deepest lake in China ¨C a volcanic crater lake on Mt. Changbai in Northeast China.

Its total capacity is 18.9 billion cubic meters which is 12 times of Dianchi Lake and 6 times of Erhai Lake. The water capacity of Fuxian Lake ranks the top in Yunnan. The lake is half-closed plateau lake, so the water supplement of the lake comes from the surrounding streams, rivers, underground springs and rainfall. The water of the lake is clear that the deepest visibility can reach 12.5 meters. Thus the water quality of Fuxian Lake ranks the 1st in Yunnan and it is also one of the clearest inland fresh Lakes in China.

The name of Fuxian Lake means that the lake is so charming that everyone even immortals will be completely enchanted with it. Fuxian Lake has three NO. 1 titles in Yunnan, its depth, water capacity and water quality. It deserves its fame.
