Miyun Reservoir in the Early Winter

Miyun Reservoir is situated 13 km north of Miyun County seat and is surrounded by the ranges of Yanshan Mountain. The reservoir is the link between Chaohe River and Baihe River and now the largest man-made lake in Asia. People always compliment it as the “Pearl of Yanshan Mountain”. As soon as you arrive at the reservoir, what you see at first is the huge dam. Standing on the top of the dam, you will have an extremely broad view of the world in front of your eyes. The best time to visit the reservoir is at dark, when the surface is flaming, making visitors feel warm against the white ice.
