Forums > Living in Kunming > Swimming in the Reservoir

I went to Zhaozong Reservoir last weekend. It's a really nice spot. There is a grassy spot by the water that's great for a picnic though not a great place to enter the water. Over by the dam is a better place to go in for a swim. There's a lot of water grass, which locals claim can grab your ankles and drag you to your death. A local boy also warned of poisonous snakes in the lake. So swim at your own risk!

I got there by riding my bike up the hill to 宝珠寺 (Baozhu Temple). It's a very steep hill and quite tiring on a bike. But there is probably a bus that goes up to the temple. At the top of the hill, where the road turns to the right, turn left onto a gravel road which leads right to the lake.

Have fun and don't feed the forum trolls!

@HFCAMPO how do you manage to comment on every thread without ever saying something useful?

If you took a second to read the link that AlexKMG provided, you would see that the reservoir we are talking about is not for drinking water. It's not pumped anywhere. It's really just a pond. Don't worry, we're not going to pee in your tap water.

Thanks, AlexKMG, that's what I was looking for. Forgot where I had read it. I will check that place out soon and update this thread if it is still a good swimming hole.

I know it sounds crazy but I am pretty sure I have heard of people doing this before. Is it permitted to swim in the reservoir that feeds the Panlong river northeast of the city?

What is the best part of the lake for making a day trip? Looking for a relatively uncrowded nice stretch of beach to take a group of about 20 students. Proximity to a good restaurant and paddle boat rental a plus. Thanks!
