Located in the southern mountain region of Jinan, capital of East China's Shandong province, Huangchao Reservoir has an average temperature 5 degrees Celsius lower than downtown, making it an ideal spot to cool off in the summer.

The mountains, the vast and flat terrain and the dam stretching across the valley all contribute to the form of the lucid Huangchao Reservoir which adds vitality to the tranquil and inspiring region.

When the weather is clear, the blue sky and white clouds are peerlessly reflected by the mirror-like water's surface.

In addition to admiring the idyllic landscape and escaping the summer heat, Huangchao Reservoir is also a perfect destination for a family trip. Kids can have water fights while the adults can pitch a tent, take photos, have a picnic and enjoy the cool.

Huangchao Waterfall, located about 2.5 kilometers northeast of Huangchao Reservoir, is a must-see scenic site when traveling to Huangchao Reservoir.

From a distance, the waterfall looks like white satin dropping from the sky. The bursts of mist make the surrounding air extraordinarily fresh and cool.

Up close, the 50-meter-high waterfall provides inspiration about the joys of nature. It makes people feel at ease as they close their eyes and refresh their spirits, taking deep breaths while walking by the waterfall.

Travelers can pay a visit to the agritainment farm which is located on the south bank of Huangchao Reservoir. Nanshan stir-fried chicken is a specialty of the farm. A big pot of stir-fried chicken can always satisfy most people's appetites.

Huangchao tea is another local specialty product. The high altitude, large difference in temperature between day and night, weak alkaline water and acid soil make the area a perfect place for growing tea.
