The bed of Poyang Lake, the largest freshwater lake in China, is exposed on Sunday because of the ongoing drought. The landmark tourist attraction of the lake is shui luo shi chu (literally meaning, when the water subsides, the rocks emerge), and can only be reached by boat on normal days. The low water level may threaten the lake’s ecological system and the general economic development of the area.
