Eight Views of Yanjing: Mountain Viewing at Yinding Bridge


Between Shichahai Lake and Houhai Lake sits a slightly curved stone bridge. It’s called Yinding (silver ingot) Bridge since it looks like a silver ingot. On the east of the bridge lies the expansive Shichahai, and on the west is the long and narrow Houhai Lake.

Looking westward on the bridge, you can see the willow trees kissing the water surface, and overlook the wide range of the Western Hills. It’s rare to see such a natural picture of mountains, lakes and willow trees in downtown area. One interesting thing is that you can only enjoy these sceneries while standing on the bridge, which will be beyond your view as you descend the bridge.
