Baihe Reservoir is located on the east side of Baihe Dist., and faces both the northern and southern parts of the Guanziling Scenic Area. It is on the same tourist route as Guanziling, and most tourists will visit both these places on the same journey.
The reservoir was built in 1965, and provides irrigation, flood prevention, water related industries, natural water supply and tourism. It also provides a spectacular flood discharging scene. It is truly a multi-purpose reservoir.
The reservoir lake spans 170 hectares, and there are two small islands in the middle, of a height of below 160 meters. Depending on the raising and lowering of the water levels, the small islands are not always visible. When the water level is low, a boat can be rowed to the islands. Looking into the distance, one can see many blue waves.
On the left side of the lake is a small hill with a flat terrain, densely shaded, and suitable for picnics, camping and other recreational activities. Nearby are a flower nursery, car park and shady woods, suitable for hiking and taking in the cool air.
