Thought we give this one a chance, drove down the winding roads to reach the reservoir, a windy rainy day, just to add to the mood. Walked around, took the boat trip, lasted about 50 minutes, which sailed around the islands, life jackets are provided, if you ask for them. Nice place, but it has little in the way of... More

We had an hour to kill and based on the excellent reviews on tripadvisor, we took a small detour to the reservoir. Very happy we did! It's a bit on the small side for a reservoir. Not very busy though maybe because it's not famous as a tourist spot (yet!) We walked 360 degrees around it in maybe 30 minutes... More

I enjoyed my lunch overlooking the reservoir. People were enjoying swimming there, I guess the water wasn't too cold and there were several stalls selling inflatables to play with. There were food stalls there as well. I walked around the circumference and took some nice photos of the bridges and you can see the Snow Mountain from there too.

From the northern gate of Lijiang Old Town, the Snow Mountain appeared to me so near so I thought I could walk from the Old Town to the foothill of the Snow Mountain and I walked and walked but the mountain still appeared so lofty near but it was really far away. When I asked someone along the way if... More

This is a must do in Lijiang, especially on a clear, sunny day. (almost every day, except in July which is the rainy season). Enjoy a walk around the reservoir and a beautiful view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain!

We stopped here for a break from our cycle from Lijiang Old Town to Shuhe Ancient Town. the views are nice- blue skies, mountains, and the clean water where you can watch people swim- or join them if you wish! There are stalls with food here so it makes a nice place to sit and relax!
