Every year from November to March, tens of thousands of Siberian red-billed gulls visit Kunming, providing a unique view of the Spring City. It is said that red-billed gulls came to Kunming for winter, which began in 1986. For unknown reasons, a small group of seagulls flew to Cuihu Lake in Kunming. Kunming people loved and treated these elves very much. They did not hurt them. They took out bread and other food to entertain the guests. The next spring, seagulls flew away. However, it may be that the seagulls remember the warmth and friendliness of Kunming people. When winter comes, the seagulls come back and bring more companions. The Kunming people are happier and devote more hospitality... In this way, year after year, the seagull team is becoming larger and larger, and here the seagull is not afraid of human beings, can be close to people, and even directly from the hands of tourists to get food... In winter, seagulls have become a unique beautiful scenery in Kunming. The main seagull viewing places are Cuihu Lake and Haiyuan Dam in Dianchi Lake. People laugh at them and they fly around the crowd like butterflies. If you come to Kunming during this period, you must come to experience it, buy a pack of food for gulls, hand-feed, take photos, and make sure that you will leave a good memory... The harmony between man and nature has drawn thousands of kilometers away, and this beautiful scene will never cease to circulate...
Haiyuan, as its name implies, refers to a long dike deep into the Dianchi Lake, which divides the Dianchi Lake into two lakes. Now lawns are planted on both sides of the dam, and it's good to visit the lake along the dam. Every winter, Dianchi Lake is a paradise where red-billed gulls live. Feeding birds and watching birds in the park is a popular activity for Kunming citizens. Ridges can be biked, or can be watched on foot! ____________
Haiyuan Park was built in the early 1960s. It is situated in the southern suburb of Kunming City, Yunnan Province, "Four Seasons Like Spring", "Plateau Pearl" by Dianchi Lake, about 10 kilometers away from the center of Kunming City. The East and West are about 2.5 kilometers long, and the north and South are about 200 meters wide, covering an area of 750 mu. Haiyuan Park welcomes friends from all over the world to meet and spend a warm and romantic holiday night together. The Park connects the vast Dianchi Lake in Bibo to the south, with a 2.5 kilometer coastline; the ropeway connecting Haiyuan Park to Longmen in Xishan to the west, separated by only one water; the golf course and national sports training base to the east; and the "Garden Hotel" and "Yunnan Ethnic Village" to the north. After the establishment of the National Tourist Resort of Dianchi Lake in Kunming in 1992, with the attention of the Resort Management Committee, a new park integrating tourism, leisure, entertainment and vacation, promoting the historical, cultural and human landscape of Dianchi Lake is taking on a new look in the lateritic plateau and the shore of Dianchi Lake.
The ridge of the sea is the ridge of the cross sea. It was originally a long levee intersected in the Dianchi Lake from east to west, dividing the Dianchi Lake into two parts - "the southern part of the ridge is the vast Dianchi Lake, and the northern part is the "Caohai". There are two hundred-year-old Eucalyptus trees linked by branches in the park. To the ridge, you can see Sleeping Beauty Mountain. It's convenient to come here by bus or by car.
Yunnan Gull watching in winter has become one of the hotspots in Haiyuan Park. It is said that tens of thousands of red-billed gulls come from Siberia every year for the winter. From a distance, the dam and the wires are covered with rows of white dots. It's funny and cute to hear that these white little guys can only fly clockwise on the west hill next to them, which is the best viewing point overlooking the whole Dianchi Lake. Originally, there was a flying ropeway directly down the west mountain to reach Haiyuan Park across Dianchi Lake. Unfortunately, this month's maintenance stopped and the desire to fly across the sea and sky failed every trip. There was always a bit of proper regret that this incompleteness would be the driving force for the next trip from the original place.

We drove along the Dianchi Dam and arrived at Haiyuan Park. There were a small number of free parking spaces and a large number of toll-free parking spaces outside the park. It's a fine day today. The park is crowded with tourists. First, we went directly to the edge of Dianchi Lake. This area is the nearest to Dianchi Lake. There are the most tourists and seagulls. People keep throwing bread crumbs and ham sausages. Seagulls keep calling and flying over their heads. They feel that they are graceful. What a harmonious natural landscape! After feeding the birds happily, and then walking along the footpath beside Dianchi Lake to the depths of the park, we found that the park is not big, there is an amusement park, but not many people to play; there is also a helicopter experience park, helicopter landing and taking off, it is estimated that business should be good!
Although Haiyuan Park is biased, it can be put together with Yunnan Ethnic Villages. The water quality of Dianchi Lake is still worrying, far less than that of Erhai Lake. When I went there in October, there were no birds or anything like that. I could see the mountains on the other side, cloudy and hazy. But along the shore of Dianchi Lake, feeding pigeons, blowing the wind and listening to the sound of water are quite good. There is a wishing pool along the coast. I saw many people's good wishes and expectations. Well, stranger, I wish you well too.
