East Lake Introduction

The East Lake is situated six kilometers (3.7 miles) to the east of the historic Shaoxing City. With a wonderful combination of a hill, grottoes, stone bridges, it might pass for a miniature landscape. o­n a par with the West Lake in Hangzhou and the South Lake in Jiaxing, it is o­ne of the three famous lakes in Zhejiang Province. Although it is quite small, its delicacy and elegance rank it among the best resorts in Shaoxing.

East Lake Features

The crescent lake is hemmed in by a hill formed of bluestone, a kind of material widely used in building houses, bridges and roads. Stoneworkers had quarried stones from this hill since the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220AD). In later times the hill hollowed out, leaving o­nly steep cliffs and a deep pool. During the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), banks were set up to separate the river outside from the lake inside; the lake was then beautified with diverse bridges, cute pavilions, willows o­n the banks in an uneven and intriguing pattern. The end-product is this charming lake. New embellishments like a corridor and a tea garden have been added.
