Romantice Story of Heavenly Lake. As if the natural beauty of Heavenly Lake were not enough, legend adds a mysterious touch. It is said that the West Queen fell in love with the king and asked him in her poem, 'The white clouds drift while the mountains reach the blue sky. Passing thousands of mountains, crossing ten thousands of rivers, you come to us from a faraway place. If you are still strong and fine, would you like to come back to us again?' The king answered in his poem, 'After I go back to central China and lead the people to a prosperous life, I will come to you again.' We do not know why the king never returned. Only the placid lake and the silent mountains witnessed the lovesickness of the West Queen.
