Western Hills

The Western Hills on the West Bank of the Dianchi Lake consist of the Huating, Taihua and Luohan mountains, which together extend for more than 40 kilometers at an average altitude of 2,500 meters above sea level. This is a colossal natural forest reserve in the midst of a lofty mountain range crisscrossed by babbling brooks and gurgling streams. Ancient trees are adorned with thick, lush foliage and birds chirp and flutter in the green treetops.

Viewed from the Southeast corner of Kunming, the entire forest reserve looks like a beautiful maiden reclining leisurely by Dianchi Lake, her long hair drifting in the placid water. Hence the nickname of the Western Mountains Forest Reserve is ' Sleeping Beauty'.
