Originally named Haizi Reservoir, the lake has a total storage capacity of 121 million cubic meters and sprawls over 6.5 square kilometers. Embraced on three sides by mountains, the extensive Jinhai Lake is the largest comprehensive aquatic entertainment venue in Beijing, today recognized as a municipal-level scenic area and scenic resort.

 

The 1,500-meter main dam of the lake has a 500-meter covered corridor, second only to the one in the Summer Palace in Beijing. In this long, richly decorated corridor, tourists can appreciate paintings on ancient Chinese legends and proverbs. Down to the south of it stands a cliff where Chinese tightrope walker Adili Wuxor wire-walked for 123 hours and 48 minutes in 2002, creating a Guinness world record.

 

On the elevation at the center of the lake is a 25-meter-high, seven-storied pagoda with 72 stairs. It is unique in the world for its 168 animal head sculptures.

 

Jinhai Lake offers more than 30 types of water amusements, such as sightseeing cruisers, yachts, water scooters, pedal boats, rowing boats and water slides. Tourists can enjoy the view by taking a dragon boat, experience high speed on yachts, fly with parachutes, or slide into the water and revel in its coolness.

 

The lake is home to more than 60 species of aquatic birds, including some rare ones. These birds dwell here from mid-April to mid-October every year. Jinhai Lake also has a wide variety of fishes, so tourists can try fishing or the unique local all-fish feast.

 

The tree-shaded complex by the lake is the Jinhai Lake Water Sport Center (also known as the Jinhai Lake Resort), where the rowing and canoeing events of the 11th Asian Games were held in 1990. The Chinese team won 24 of the 27 gold medals in the two events. The resort provides aquatic amusements, training and performances as well as hotel and catering services.

 

In late autumn, the woods around Jinhai Lake with red and golden leaves present a beautiful view. Thousands of hectares of woods and the clear water create a perfect picture.

 

Jinhai Lake is an ideal place for tourists to enjoy leisure and holidays.
