Late autumn is the most beautiful time at Guanding Lake, as the verdant water sets off the colorful vegetation surrounding it.
Situated in Longguan township, Haishu district, Ningbo, the lake lies at an altitude of 540 meters. It covers an area of 150,000 square meters and has a capacity of 2.22 million cubic meters.
The annual average temperature in the area is between 3 and 5 degrees Celsius lower than that of downtown Ningbo, making it an excellent place for recreation and a summer holiday.
