Shihmen Reservoir is the biggest reservoir among far eastern countries. The scenery of the lake and mountains surrounding it is poetic and spectacular all year round. It is also a good place to go on holidays. Shihmen Reservoir is connected to more than ten outside tourist sites. There are bicycles tracks and lake cruises.

The reservoir has many different functions such as generating power, watering agricultural plants, preventing floods, offering drinking water and sightseeing. Shihmen reservoir is also a good place to watch the maple leaves. In winter, people are able to see the golden maple leaves everywhere. The plum blossoms are always beautiful as well. The white blossoms always catch people's eyes.

By the time spring comes, the peach blossoms, cherry blossoms and azaleas seem like they are having a beauty contest. Their beauty is appealing. Whenever the rainy season comes, the spectacular view of floodwater being released always attracts many visitors.
