Yansai Lake Introduction

Yansai Lake, also called Shihe reservoir, is located in the canyon 7 li northwest of Shanhai Pass. It is the first man-made lake along the east Great Wall. It was made in 1974 when people built dam for reserving water. Shihe was a river which overflowed every summer and fall. The flood running through the narrow winding riverbed damaged the farmland and blocked the villagers. Shihe, however, is a natural protection for Shanhai Pass. Many military and national conflicts happened in this place during Sui, Tang, Liao and Jin dynasties. Li zicheng, a peasant uprising hero in the end of Ming dynasty, had a ferocious battery at the banks of shihe with Qing army led by Duoergun. In Beiyang government’s reign, two wars took place here. It is the very place that He zhuguo resisted the Japanese invading troops. Located in temperate monsoonal zone, it is a wonderful resort for preventing sunstroke. The best travel season is from May to October because of its cool weather in summer and moderate climate.
