(ECNS) -- Poyang Lake, China's largest freshwater lake, saw its water level decline below 9 meters on Tuesday. The water level at the lake's Xingzi hydrological station dropped to 8.96 meters at 8:00 am Tuesday.

Located at the confluence of the Yangtze River and Poyang Lake, Shizhongshan Cave rose above the water, attracting many tourists.

The famous poem "Stone Bell Mountain" written by Su Dongpo, a pre-eminent scholar of the Song dynasty, depicted the appearance of the caves.

The local meteorological department forecast that the drought will continue.

"The caves, which used to emerge in December, were completely exposed by the end of August this year. These caves explored by Su Dongpo, the pre-eminent scholar of the Song dynasty, have attracted many tourists," said Yang Fan, a staff member of Shizhongshan (Stone Bell Mountain) Scenic Spot.
