Eastern China Sights

East Lake (Dōnghú)

Updated 03/20/2013

Fodor's Review

The narrow East Lake runs along the base of a rocky bluff rising up from the rice paddies of Zhejiang. The crazily shaped cliffs were used as a rock quarry over the centuries, and today their sheer gray faces jut out in sheets of rock. You can hire a local boatman to take you along the base of the cliffs in a traditional black awning boat for around Y40.
