Description

Erhai Lake - also known as Er Lake - is a prominent alpine fault lake in China's Yunnan province. Being nearly 2,000 metres below sea level, Erhai Lake is also the second largest highland lake in the country and covers over 250 square kilometres of area. There are also a few notable islands on the lake which can be visited and these include the Jinsuo Island, Guanyin Ge, Nanzhao Folklore Island and the Xiaoputuo Island. Several other attractions can be found near the lakeshore such as the Erhai Lake Park and the Butterfly Springs. The lake gets its name - which translates to "Ear-shaped Sea" - due to its unique shape and was also known during ancient times as Yeyuze or Kunming Lake.
