The Stunning Lake Kanas in China & the Legend of its Monster

Even without the lure of its mysterious lake monster, Kanas Lake is a spectacularly beautiful lake on an equally stunning nature reserve in northern Xinjiang, China.

Travelers rave about the splendid Alpine scenery at Kanas Lake, a long flowing, pristine lake that is found in the Altay mountains that supplies Kanas River, also in the nature reserve. The forests are filled with stunning, colorful trees.

The lake even has its own legendary lake monster! Similar to Scotland’s Loch Ness monster, stories of the Kanas Lake Monster have been in the Chinese media since the 1980s about an enormous, serpent-like creature.

Apparently the lake monster reappeared in 2005 and again in 2006, bringing tons of journalists and conspiracy hounds hoping to photograph the mysterious beast of the lake.

Chinese scientists insist it’s just a big school of salmon-like fish and not a lake monster. Legends usually start for a reason and some claim the serpent exists.

Chinese artist Yang Yongliang is known for his sprawling photographic collages that depict the devastating effects of uncontrolled urbanisation and industrialisation. At a distance the works look like traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy but when viewed up close, the peaceful mountains and seascapes are found to be choked with buildings, factories, and machinery.
