Lover Lake is located on the Wuchong Mountain at an altitude of 1,000 meters. The high mountains are rarely populated. The lake is like the sky, the same color with the blue sky, and the blue water is crystal clear. It is one of the rare natural mountain lakes in Guangdong Province today.
The lake covers a vast area of vegetation and many natural weathered features, with willow trees hanging over the shade and banyan trees intertwined, adding a lot of ancient meaning. Looking down from the top of Wuchong Mountain, Lover Lake stretches blue, surrounded by green hills and trees, blue sky and white clouds, just like a landscape painting in the hands of a famous teacher.
In the rolling valley, surrounded by thousands of mountains and green, birds sing and warblers, and Lover Lake is a quiet scenery. It looks like a human heart, cramped in the valley in the mountains. No one knows where its source is, only that it is inexhaustible as a jadeite, as if it has never been polluted. Although the lake is small, it has a fantastic blue color.
The green of Lover Lake does not have the miscellaneousness of duckweed, nor the height of lotus pond. All it has is soft and natural. It just lay here quietly, just fusing the natural green from the surrounding mountains and bamboos into its own life for countless careers. The breeze is blowing by the lake alone, the water waves are unpleasant, and the reflections of the green bamboos on both sides of the lake are sometimes hidden, sometimes sinking. All this makes people feel that what they see is not a lake, but a psychic gem.
Legend has it that long ago there was no lake here, but some were just a broken house with a handsome guy living in it, and there were families under the mountain with a beautiful girl. The guy played the flute to the moon every day, and the girl was fascinated by the beautiful sound of the flute under the mountain. Gradually, the girl and the guy fell in love with each other. But the girl's parents married her to the rich man as a concubine. The young man rushed to the rich man's house overnight, and took the moonlight to take the girl out and hide in the bamboo forest. In the early morning, the rich man took the dog-legs to catch the boy and tortured the girl's place, but the boy never said a word. So the rich man thought of a vicious way and tied the young man in a bamboo forest and burned him. They expected the young man would yell, so that the girl could be forced out. The boy saw through the rich man's poisonous scheme. For the girl, for the love in his heart, the boy didn't shout a word until he died. When the girl came out at night, there were only ruins in front of her eyes, but in the ruins there was a heart shining brightly under the moon. That is the boy's unturned heart, the boy's eternal love, and the unswerving love in the world. The girl held the boy's heart with tears in her eyes. It happened that He Xiangu passed by here and was moved to learn about this, and rescued the young man with the fairy lotus in her hand. The tears in the girl's eyes instantly turned into blue tears, and finally the girl's tears turned into a lake of love.
No wonder the water of Lover Lake is so calm and so blue. It turns out that this is all filled with lover's tears! I heard that the Lover Bridge on Lover Lake has a certain magic power. Many lovers will visit here and walk through Lover Lake hand in hand to have a good marriage.
