This morning, 520 Asian first RuntotheBeat Melody Music Half Marathon was held in the Shisanling Reservoir District. Nearly 5,000 Chinese and foreign athletes from more than 50 countries participated in the marathon. Today the weather is cool and very strong, especially suitable for long-distance running. The track of the Ming Tombs is also very beautiful. With the pleasant music, we successfully completed the race.
The Shisanling Reservoir is located in Changping District, Beijing. It was built in 1958. After more than 50 years of development, it has become a tourist attraction integrating flood control, hydroelectric power generation, tourism, leisure and vacation as well as education.
The Shisanling Reservoir is a mountain basin reservoir with an area of 751 hectares, including 440 hectares of land and 311 hectares of water. Mountains stand around the reservoir, especially the towering Python Mountains on the North bank. The wide water surface reflects the mountains, giving people a feeling of "Gaoxia out of Pinghu". At the junction of the foot of the mountain and the water surface, there are many bays and harbors with quiet and pleasant scenery.
The Shisanling Reservoir is a comprehensive tourist attraction. It is also a national water resources scenic spot, located in Changping area, and also a large artificial reservoir. It's very convenient to take a taxi or bus from here to the Ming Tombs. We can have lunch in Changping at noon, and the price is lower than that in Beijing. If you don't recommend browsing with the group, you can just walk around and watch the flowers, and you can't enjoy the most beautiful scenery of the reservoir.
The scenery is pleasant, the mountains and rivers alternate, the peaks overlap, the air is fresh, and the history and culture are long.
