Eco-corridor adds beauty to Lake Erhai

August saw west Yunnan’s Dali bathed in bright sunshine, with streams of tourists going to the Erhai lake shore for leisure and sightseeing. “Please care for the saplings in green areas,” said Yang Zhilong, a Dali native. Whenever the waves of travel swelled, Yang would volunteer to remind some of the sight seers.

The so-called green areas by Yang have formed the eco-restoration project of the Erhai lakeside wetland in Dali county-level city, or the “Erhai eco-corridor” for short. The ecological project involved eco-restoration, wetland maintenance, construction of eco-corridors, resettling lakeside villagers, improvement pipe networks, and scientific experiments.
