Lijiang is really poor and crazy. The mud horse is stuck with 80 yuan protection fee everywhere! Anyway, this visit to Kunming and Dali in Yunnan is almost done, so I won't look at your fees! Where can I go without charge, such as this reservoir, it's quiet and beautiful! The reflection of the surrounding scenery in the water can be used as screen saver in any shot! Especially Yulong Snow Mountain can be seen clearly and its reflection is beautiful. The key is not to pay the maintenance fee of the ancient city! That's how you charge in Ronglijiang. We'll never come again!
Qingxi Reservoir is located in the northern suburb of Lijiang City, near the College of Tourism Culture of Yunnan University of Lijiang and No. 1 Middle School of Old Town of Lijiang City. It is one of the drinking water sources of Lijiang City. In winter, it is a good place to relax and bask in the sun. In summer, it is a place to enjoy the cool. It's good to take your family to relax on weekends. In the evening, you can count the stars and see the moon with your friends. The most important thing is free!
We want to see Yulong Snow Mountain. Xiao Zhu said he would take us to places where there are few people. So we took a taxi to Qingxi Reservoir. The fare is about 10 yuan. It's very close. After getting off the bus, we came in and all of us sighed with admiration. There were really few beautiful sceneries and no tickets.
This reservoir park is near the Shuhe-Baisha route from Dayan Ancient City, but it is not necessarily a pass, but a good place to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and scenery of Lijiang on the return journey. So, ride the rented cow electric bicycle around specially. Up a long step, a clear blue lake, reflecting the distant Yulong Snow Mountain is in front of me. This is Lijiang drinking water reservoir, but also a park for people to enjoy leisure. There are not many people here, some like local people, fishing and playing chess in groups by the lake; on the other side, there are a group of people taking wedding photos by the lake; the rest are our two tourists. Up the dam and down, you can reach the lake. You can reach the clear and cool lake water with your hands. There is no barrier, but there is no trash floating on the lake. Fortunately, it comes in the right season and time. In mid-November, Lijiang still looks like late autumn. Poplars and willows on the lakeside are all yellow. The sky is blue and breeze. The lake level is like a mirror. The snow mountain, blue sky and golden tree shadows, together with a white jade arch bridge carved in imitation of Han Dynasty across the lake, are all reflected on the lake mirror. What a wonderful and fantastic world of reflection! We sat on the stone bench beside the lake, soaked two cups of instant coffee in the inn with hot water from a thermal insulator, and enjoyed the long sunshine and beautiful scenery. Then we walked around the lake. In front of the stone arch bridge wrapped in golden trees, we saw the lake sparkling with the sunshine from the West oblique, while the lake on the other side was blue-green, which was not a beautiful plateau lake scene. Of course, cameras and self-timers can't stop. He stayed in the Xieyang West until his stomach was so hungry that he got on the electric car and left. Surprisingly, a bowl of authentic local beef and rice noodles was eaten on the way back. No, I ate two bowls!
After waiting for two hours, the wind finally blew away the veil of Yulong Snow Mountain and revealed its true face. Qingxi Reservoir is an excellent place to photograph the reflection of the snow mountain, but the wind waves once again disrupted the plan. Ha-ha.
In the morning, we came to Qingxi Reservoir, located in the outskirts of Lijiang City, where we could see the snow mountain more clearly. We hoped that we could get the sunshine Golden Mountain as we did yesterday. We did not think about overnight cloudy weather until the sun rose completely and did not disperse. In the distance, the direction of Yulong Snow Mountain was covered by clouds, so that even half of the shadow of the snow mountain could not be seen. We stood on the dam of the reservoir anxiously waiting for the clouds to disperse, and the cold and impatience eroded our patience a little. After waiting for a long time on the dam, the clouds did not disperse. We were all somewhat depressed. Apart from being depressed that we could not photograph the snow mountain today, we were more worried about entering the Yulong Snow Mountain tomorrow. If it was the same weather tomorrow, we would not be able to photograph anything. We returned to the city for lunch, when the sky began to clear up and the clouds slowly dissipated. We are again on the dam of the Qingxi Reservoir. Afternoon sunshine warmly shines on the lawn of the dam, surrounded by tourists flying kites and basking in the sun, and occasionally several couples of wedding dress shooters can be seen. The dense trees near the reservoir have fallen out of yellow leaves, leaving only branches crossing in the woods. This is a bleak scene, but because a couple of lovers walk under the tree hand in hand, it is more like a winter love song. Today's reservoir is more like a park than a cold morning. Looking to the north, Yulong Snow Mountain first appeared so clear and high in front of us. The only thin clouds in the mountains were like a snow-white skirt band winding around the waist of the snow mountain. The huge stone-gray mountain did not grow any vegetation. The snow covered the mountains all the year round, making the snow mountain look both magnificent and enchanting. Several swallows were circling in front of the snow mountain clouds. They seemed to be subordinate to the magnificence of the Jade Dragon and were willing to protect the blue sky for her.
The scenery is beautiful. Especially on sunny days, blue skies, white clouds and snow mountains! Beautiful
A small reservoir, no tickets, beautiful scenery, suitable for walking at will, overlooking Yulong Snow Mountain
The water of Qingxi Reservoir is very clear. There are green grass and shrimp and fish swimming freely in it. This is also the local people's drinking water and barreled water. This season, friends who like to take sunrise can take a reflection of Yulong Snow Mountain. It is especially beautiful against the blue sky and green water. Although it is a reservoir here, it is no worse than the lake on the plateau. You can feel it when you are free.
The Qingxi Reservoir is not far from the ancient city of Lijiang. It can be directly traveled by bus. Dripping is also the starting price. Drivers asked us why we want to go to the Qingxi Reservoir. Did we see the recommendation on the internet? We answered that we just want to walk at will and do not want to go to the popular scenic spot. He said that Qingxi Reservoir is in Qingxi Park. It seems that a person who sells pomegranates in the market took a picture there and posted it on the Internet to get many people's praise. Thus, the photographer Pomegranate became a net red, and the Qingxi Reservoir became a place for tourists to punch in. And it's free of tickets.
