When you come to Kunming, you must go to Dianchi. The best place to look at Dianchi Lake is Haitang Park. On the season, it is naturally winter, not for anything else, only the time of the Dianchi has more cute red-billed gulls with red mouths flying around. Maybe it's because the people here are always caring for them. The birds are not afraid of people coming into contact with them. If you have small snacks like bread on hand, they will be rude. Snatch delicious. Sitting on a bench on the shore, bathing in the warm sunshine of Yunnan in the winter, watching the full-fledged red-billed gull strolling along the lake, all the noise is stopped at this moment, and the time seems to slow down.
This special group of guests dates back to November 1985. In the winter of this year, these red-billed seagulls from Siberia visited Kunming for the first time. I don't know how they learned that there is such a city in the southwest of China. There is no signal. Suddenly, one day, Kunming people caught up with nearly 10,000 red-billed seagulls by surprise. This was a bizarre news in the past. . Since then, every year, Siberia, which is 6,000 kilometers away, is about to enter a long winter. These red-billed seagulls will start to migrate to Kunming in the spring of the four seasons, and inhabit the waters of Kunming. Arrived in November and left in March of the following year.
Speaking of seagulls, everyone must think about going to the seaside city, but you know? Every winter, in an inland city in China, you can actually see piles of seagulls, maybe more than you see in any coastal city, and this inland city is Kunming, the capital of Yunnan.
In Kunming, there is a very famous tourist attraction, and the place where tourists must go is Dianchi. Don't think that the name of "Dianchi" is called "pool" and look down on it. In fact, "Dianchi Lake" is the largest lake in the southwest and the sixth largest freshwater lake in China. However, the name of the lake is "pool". Quite rare!
A few days ago, I enjoyed the winter scenery of Dianchi Lake in Dianchi Dam, and the most impressive one is undoubtedly the red-billed gull here.
It is reasonable to say that Yunnan Province is an inland province with no coastline at all. The city of Kunming is not dependent on the sea. How can there be so many seagulls in Dianchi?
Originally, these red-billed gulls are from distant and cold Siberia. They fly every winter to the warm and pleasant Kunming winter. Dianchi Lake is their best habitat.
You think about it, these red-billed gulls are warm and comfortable in Kunming. There are countless tourists to feed them every day. This happy life of "clothing to reach out, rice to open mouth", where are they willing to leave?
When you talk about the famous attractions in Kunming, Yunnan, you have to mention "Dianchi". Although the name is "pool", in fact, "Dianchi" is the largest freshwater lake in Yunnan, which is very rare.
Kunming Dianchi is a national-level tourist resort, also known as Kunming Lake or Kunming Pool. The lake is 1,886 meters above sea level and is also known as the Pearl of the Plateau.
Every winter, a large number of red-billed gulls from Siberia will inhabit the Kunming Dianchi Lake, attracting a large number of tourists to "feed the birds", and the overwhelming red-billed gulls are breathtaking.
Although the Dianchi Lake is not on the sea, you can see many red-billed gulls that are rare in the general coastal cities in the Dianchi Lake in winter. Dont you want to see it with your own eyes?
Dianchi, also known as Kunming Lake, is a beautiful fresh water lake in Yunnan Province. The surface of the lake is veiled a thin layer of mist that brings the lake magnificence. Every winter, Dianchi turns into a paradise for black-headed gulls, and a lot of citizens will come here to feed or watch the birds. Throw some bread crumbs and you will surely invite a flock of gulls. It is a really amazing experience to be surrounded by these birds.
