Taihu Lake -- Nature Beauty 

According to an ancient legend in Chinese culture, a fantastic present of a silver basin with 72 emerald beads showed up at a party in the heaven.

 

After an accident, the basin fell onto the earth, and then the Taihu Lake appeared.

 

The silver basin turned into the lake, and 72 emerald beads turned into 72 peaks nearby. 

Hundreds of years later, Yu the Great, the king who built the first dynasty in the history of China, led people defeated flood near Taihu Lake.

 

This is also the place where Xi Shi and her beloved one disappeared, after she finished her mission and the Kingdom Wu was perished.

 

Gradually, the Taihu Lake became more and more famous for its magnificent natural beauties.
