Chagan Lake is called Chagan Naoer in Mongolian, means White holy lake. It is located in the Songhua River in the west of Jilin Province. It covers nearly 500 square kilometers. It is China’s 7th largest fresh water lake and a natural habitat for 68 different types of fish. The lake is the only place that saves the oldest Mongolian fishing method. The annual winter fishing festival is held to remember the old winter fishing tradition. Fishermen first drill many holes through the thick ice and then place net under the ice. This practice dates back more than 1, 000 years. Still today, local fishermen use the same tools as their ancestors did. Their unique skills are now listed as one of China’s many intangible cultural heritages.
