Located at Taihu Lake, Sanshan Island consists of Bei Mountain, Xing Mountain and Xiaogu Mountain which are connected to each other – Sanshan (meaning three mountains) Island.

It boasts extraordinary rock-scapes including Banbi Peak, Chinese Zodiac Statues, the Paleolithic Site known as Sanshan Culture over 10,000 years ago, and even mammalian fossils.

Thanks to the advantageous geographical conditions of the island, it is warm in winter and cool in summer and the rainfall is also moderate. Flanked by green trees, its lakeside beach stretches hundreds of meters, which makes the island a great place to visit in summer.
