Jiuzhaigou - Wolong Hai

Sichuan - Chengdu - Jiuzhaigou - Leshan

Wolong Hai, also known as Sleeping Dragon Lake covers an area of about 61,838 square meter with a depth of 22 meter.

In the middle of the lake, submerged, is a dimly visible yellowish "Lying Dragon" in some 20 meter of water. When a gentle wind from the mountain whips up ripples on the lake's clear surface, it looks as if the "Dragon" were stretching herself, and once the wind increases intensity, the "Dragon" begins to shake her head and wag her tail, as if poising for take off.

Sometimes the dragon appears as if it will jump out of the water, but suddenly it may disappear totally.
