Lake Hongze (Hongze Lake) is the fourth largest freshwater lake in China. The lake’s northwest shore is the provincial border of Jiangsu and Anhui, and the rest are surrounded by two of Jiangsu’s cities, Suqian and Huai’an.

River History

The lake was much smaller than its present size in the 11th century because it was enlarged four times (around 1,960 sq km) when the Yellow River changed its course, forcing its water into the Huaihe River, and together the water of the two rivers pooled up into the lake. After the Yellow River changed back to its regular course in1897, the Huaihe River continued pooling up into Lake Hongze.

Tourist Attraction

Erected more than 400 years ago, the Hongze Levee is a well known artificial levee. The levee is 70 km in length and is a critical levee to prevent flooding. The levee offers a beautiful landscape and many tourist attractive sites have been established along the levee, such as an artificial beach and many other entertainment facilities.

By renting a boat, you can cruise on the lake with your friends and family.
