Few days ago, an investment agreement for developing Kaibangya Lake into a comprehensive tourist resort was signed between Yingjing local government and Yingjiang Kaibangya Lake Tourist Investment Corporation. According to the agreement, the total investment was over 10 billion yuan, and the entire development construction would be finished within 10 years from now on. After completion, Kaibangya Lake, an important tourism resource in Yingjiang County, will become a destination for JIngpo cultural tourism, leisure, sporting, recuperation and business conferences.
Kaibangya Lake, also known as "the lake with thousands islands", is a lake in Copper Cliff Village, Yingjiang County. Kaibangya is a word from Jingpo language which means “the valley of harvest”. Kaibangya covers a lake area of 8 square kilometers, within which hundreds small islands were scattered. The annual average temperature is 14.2℃, allowing this lake to be the best choice for a summer resort. Currently, it is a national A level scenic spot.
The Kaibangya Lake Tourism Investment Corporation was founded on June 18th in 2010 after its incumbent chairman Ru Boxing paid a visit to this lake and was deeply impressed by its unique combination of unspoiled natural surroundings and Jingpo ethnic culture. Mr. Bo was quite confident in making this lake a hot option for tourists.
