The landscape to the South and the southwest from the lake to Sikh, downstream Tsyantan’s river, is formed by gentle slopes and massifs of trees. In this zone, perhaps, the most beautiful Chinese park of Hupaomentsyuan (A source of the Running Tiger; ежедн.; 08. 00-17. 00; CNY 15). From the city centre the regular bus No. 504 and the tourist bus No. 5, lakes following on east coast here go. Near to park passes also the bus No. 3, on a way from Luntszin’s village. The local source – which, according to a legend, was put by the tszen-Buddhist monk of the IX century by means of 2 tigers – is famous for purity of the water which is using for a zavarivaniye of the best types of tea. For eyelids round it eremites lodged. At present this big zone overgrown with the wood is speckled by tea lodges where it is possible to behold the real tea traditions of China, altars, falls and pagodas.

Once very high wave has washed away in Drakonyego’s den reigning mother of the little boy by name of Lyukhe. Люхэ began to throw pebble to the river, shaking the Draconian palace. It has compelled the tsar to return it mother and to promise from now on more never to play so with waves. In gratitude peasants have built a pagoda – a bolshushchy building from a tree and a brick on which eaves bent up 104 big bells hung. On irony of history, at present the pagoda involves guests with possibility to observe strong tidal waves in days of an autumn equinox.

Approximately halfway, where the river extends in a silent lagoon, there is the restaurant of Chinese cuisine offering to guests quite good tea and excellent food.
