Located 97 kilometers south of urban Mudanjiang, the Jingbo Lake is known as the largest lava- blocked lake in China, as well as a state-level scenic resort. The lake is hidden amidst precipitous cliffs, forested peaks and lush foliage. Mountains on the lakesides are reflected on the placid water. Countless islets, big and small, are scattered on the lake. Among its eight famous isghts are the Tiaoshuilou Waterfall, Pearl Gate, Great Gushan Mountain and Little Gushan Mountain. The Tiaoshuilou Waterfall drops with great momentum from the mountaintop. In rainy or flood season, the waterfall may be widened into more than 200 meters, sending forth unparalleled magnificence.
