My family and I often go there to enjoy its beauty. We always heard some reports describing the monster in the lake. It is said to have a white ring around the bottom of its neck, and the rest of its skin is grey and smooth. I am eager to see it myself, but I never had the chance. Recently several groups of people, including one of my friends, saw the " monster". Some of them said that it had a roundhead and body with 10-cm horns on the head, while others said it had a horse's head. My friend told me that it was like a dragon about the lengh of a boat, swimming in the water. I always thought the monster had been distinct long ago because of the weather or lack of large food supply. But hearing their vivid description, I really want to see it in future. Step
