Baofeng Lake is a large body of water in Suoxi Valley Nature Reserve of Zhangjiajie. This is quite rare in the mountainous area and the lake is the only water themed scenic sopt in Zhangjiajie. After visiting a variety of mountains and valleys, the clear water brings visitors different feelings. Baofeng Lake is surrounded by mountains with many waterfalls pouring down.

Baofeng Lake is 72 meters (79 yards) deep and 2,500 meters (2,730 yards) long. It is surrounded by steep peaks and there are two small islands in the lake. One can take the Baofeng Lake cruise to appreciate the clear lake reflecting the peaks and the peculiar magnificent mountain scenery which is formed by strange peaks, waterfalls, and lush trees.
