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.

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.

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!
