As early as at the end of the Ming Dynasty, the traveler Xu Xiake wrote in his travels of Xu Xiake that “The Yunnan Mountain is full of soil, so it forms the sea with many muddy flows, and the fuxian Lake is the cleanest”. The scenery of Fuxian Lake is beautiful and unique.
Legend has it that the name fuxian Lake comes from a fairy tale. The jade Emperor stepped out of the palace, overlooking the world, found a shape such as gourd pearl, beautiful to the Jade Emperor for the dump, quickly passed xiao, stone two immortal immediately to the earth, painted this world beauty, back to the heaven, decorate the heaven.
But The two immortals, Xiao and Shi, just put their hands together and stroked their shoulders to watch, and were so impressed that they forgot to draw and to return. Day after day, year after year, they stood there steadily, intoxicated by the beautiful scenery. In one day and one night, the two immortals became two stone peaks holding hands together, looking up at the pearl, so it is called “Fuxian Lake”.
However, what makes people pay more attention is that there are several big unsolved mysteries about Fuxian Lake. Because the water of Fuxian Lake is clear and crystal clear, it was called “boundless boundless boundless glaze” by the ancients. It is said that in stormy waters, standing on the top of the adjacent hill, an ancient city can be faintly seen under the Fuxian Lake.

Chengjiang local has been circulated such a legend, “Yu Yuan ancient city and people have sunk to the bottom of the lake.” Many experts are inclined to identify the underwater city as Yu Yuan City.

On the river between Fuxian Lake and Xingyun Lake, there is a “boundary fish stone”. The wave-resistant fish from Fuxian Lake and the big fish from Xingyun Lake swim here and turn their heads, forming the famous wonder of “The two lakes meet, but the fish don’t come and go”. It was said that the stone was like a winced cat’s head, and that its inverted view was in the river, and the fish were afraid of cats, so they did not dare to cross the border.
