When you enter the Jiuzhai Valley scenic spot, the first lake you will meet is the Reed Lake. The height of Reed Lake is 2140 meters. Its whole length is 2.2 kilometers. It is a half-swamp Lake. Since the lake is full of reeds, it is the ideal place for water birds to live. In the middle of the lake, there is a water band which divided the Reed Lake into two parts. As the color of the water band likes Chinese beautiful jade, the water band is called as Jade River. It was said that the water band was the belt of the mountain goddess, Yaoluo Semo. In spring, the blooming reed flowers attract many wild ducks and egrets. So the whole Reed Sea is full of vitality in spring. In summer, reeds all turn green, and the color of the lake also is green. You could hardly distinguish them in a distance. In autumn, the reeds turn gold. With the green lake, the whole scenery looks like an emerald in a golden plate. The strong contrasting colors will make a deep impression on you.
