The lake has four characteristics:

First, it is "clean". The water is very clean and pure. Bright sunshine and gentle breeze bring out the clearness of the water. It appears green with the reflection of the sky and the sunshine makes glistening waves.

Third, the lake is "spacious". The area covers 300 square kilometers during drought and can reach up to 700 to 800 square kilometers in its flood season.

Fourth, it is "marvelous". There is an island in the lake, a lake on the island, and another island in the middle of the lake, all of which vary in gradation.
