Beautiful Gansu: Migratory birds and Sugan Lake

Sugan Lake, located on the northwestern edge of the Haizi Grassland in Aksai County, is the largest lake in northwest China's Gansu Province. Here, the vast wetland and fresh grass sustain large numbers of birds. Since 2017, grazing has been banned in the Sugan Lake area, resulting in a higher population of migratory birds. In this video, the beauty of Sugan Lake is captured by the CGTN Nature filming crew.
