In winter time, the water of the pond is never frozen. No matter In rain or drought time, the water capacity doesn't change at all. That's because the water of the pond is supplied from Changhai Pond under the ground. As we know, water under ground is never frozen in the winter, so the capacity of water keeps almost the same through the whole year. The depth of the Colorful Pond is 6.6 meters. The shapes and the grains of the stones under the pond are seen clearly. It is amazing that, the color of the water is blue, or green, or yellow, or light blue, etc, at different areas in the same pond. In the sunshine, when the wind blows, the water is splashed with some red, or golden, or green dimples.

Magic Mirror Cliff (Baojing Cliff)
Magic Mirror Cliff, 400 meters (about 1,312 feet) in height, lies at the mouth of Zharu Valley and stands facing the lakes. The surface of the cliff is rather even and it looks like a great mirror when seen from distance. It is said that the precious mirror was founded by the master of the mountain to suppress a devil who killed people cruelly. Therefore the cliff is also named Devil Cliff.
Seasonal Lakes
There are Lower Seasonal Lake and Upper Seasonal Lake in Zechawa Valley. Lower Seasonal Lake is near Zechawa Village and has a grove of birches at the lakeside. Strawberries and other wild fruits can be found in the grove. The upper Seasonal Lake is next to Five-Colored Pond surrounded by cliffs.
