In addition to its beautiful environment, the Lakeside Great Wall Reserve boasts lush vegetations, mild temperature, and sufficient water supply. It is a paradise for many wild plants and animals. Among them, mandarin ducks in their countless groups attract the most attention.
An animal under national type-two protection, wild mandarin ducks are now a rarity. In autumn, the period of a year when these birds are the most active, they set up their homes in the Lakeside Great Wall Reserve.
