The Taiyang Lake has a natural island, while the lake is surrounded by peninsulas of various shapes and sizes, with reflections of colorful forests of the shore.
On the lake, sometimes your mind is peaceful and quiet; sometimes you are surprised and cheerful. The mood changes with the surrounding environment. After a trip around the lake, the body and mind are baptized in the bounty of nature.
In addition to red leaves, Huangshui’s autumn season also includes green-turned-red Pyracantha. After the baptism of autumn breeze, the autumn in Qianye Grassland has a touch of red - ten thousand mu of Pyracantha forest with brightly red Pyracantha fruits. The Pyracantha forest is like a bonfire that has been lit, blossoming freely with the most beautiful color.
