The second last day of our trip, we stopped at Lake Fu Xian at Cheng Jiang city, about 180 kms from Kunming.
According to information, Lake Fu Xian is the biggest lake in term of volumn in Ynnan, and third deepest lake in China. It was formed more than 3.5 million years ago and is famous for its tiny silver fish.
The hotel we stayed looked grand from outside but very rundown inside. However, it is situated by the lake side and about 100 meters from a fishing village.
Our main aim to Cheng Jiang is to take photograph of the fishing village.
On the evening of our arrival , we saw many small boats leaving the village jetty to cast nets in the lake. Fishermen would stayed overnight on board and return next morning at about 5 a.m with their catch.
We were able to see beautiful sunset and sunrise, and taken many pictures of the village and fishermen.
On 22-9-2015 morning after breakfast, we left for Kunming airport, en route we stopped for lunch, and took the 5 pm flight home.
Thus concluded our 8 days beaufiful journey toYunnan.
