Qiandao Lake-Southeast Lake District includes 4 islands including Huangshanjian, Tianchi Island, Mishan Island and Guihua Island. Bus routes are available to take visitors to the islands. The view of the islands from atop Huangshanjian is comparable to the famous views of Meifeng Mountain. Tianchi Island was originally a deep quarry pit during the Southern Song Dynasty, which then became a pool of water after a flood. It is believed that a famous household tale in China, "3 monks with no water" originates from Mishan Island. The landscape on the mountain is also dominated by Buddhist temples. Guihua (osmanthus) Island was once the earliest developed attraction of Qiandao Lake. In addition to wild osmanthus flowers, there are also animal shows.
