It was included in the World Heritage List on June 24, 2011 as the only Chinese lake in that list. The pretty of the West Lake not only lies in the lake itself but also in the surrounded bridges, pavilions and dozens of matched hills. Though the height of these hills are all not exceeding 400 meters, they are graceful on account of unique peaks, bizarre rocks and elegant springs, all together enhance the lake’s appeal to compose a gorgeous picture with the West lake in the middle, resembling all the stars bend towards the moon.

Six Harmonies Pagoda: The pagoda was once maintained in 1900 with 13 storeys of wooden eaves galleries being added around the pagoda (with two eave galleries for one floor), creating a unique style that this seven-storey pagoda is seems like a 13-storey one in the appearance. Originally built in 970 during Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), it is said that the Six Harmonies Pagoda was constructed under the suggestions of two Chan masters to suppress the river tides (according to the Buddhism), and the name of the pagoda is from the six stipulations of Buddhism. Destroyed later due to warfare, the existing Six Harmonies Pagoda of Hangzhou was rebuilt in 1163 during Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) in a timberwork with seven storeys and eight faces.
Six Harmonies Pagoda:Zhang Sheng Ji is a popular old Hangzhou restaurant whose philosophy is that food doesn't have to be fancy or use exotic ingredients to be delicious. Duck casserole and West Lake vinegar fish are the first dishes that come to mind for most people when Zhang Sheng Ji is mentioned.
