About Mengzi

Located in southeast Yunnan, Mengzi City is the capital of the Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture. Mengzi has been called the “home of Chinese crossing-the-bridge noodles” and “China’s pomegranate capital.” It also has many large silver mines. The Nanhu (南湖 - “South Lake”) scenic area is named for its location in the southern part of urban Mengzi and is the legendary birthplace of crossing-the-bridge noodles. The scenic area has many traditional Chinese architectural structures and is surrounded by western European-style architecture. In Mengzi, you will also find unique attractions like the village of Bisezhai, the remains of the Mengzi French treaty port, and the Jade Emperor Pavilion.

City Park
Lake
Nanhu is located to the south of Mengzi County, and was formerly known as Caohai. During the Ming Dynasty, the magistrate directed villagers to extract the mud and weeds from the lake and used them to form three hills. The hills were named after the mountains Penglai, Weizhou and Fangzhang, where the immortals are said to live. Water was brought in from four springs in the surrounding area, including Jiuji Spring and Faguo Spring, and a smaller lake was formed to accompany the larger natural one. The banks of Nanhu Lake are lined with sage, while there are a variety of flowers and trees planted in the park, which has now become known as Nanhu Park. The main structure in Nanhu Park is the magnificent Yingzhou Pavilion, which remains extremely well preserved even to this day. Because it has been the destination of scholarly poets, it has also earned the nickname "Sea of Learning." This location is also the origin of Yunnan's famous legend of the rice noodles crossing the bridge.
