Shing Mun Reservoir also known as Upper Shing Mun Reservoir or Jubilee Reservoir,  lies at Southwest side of New Territories. The dam and reservoir were completed in 1937 and the name “Jubilee Reservoir” was designated to celebrate the Silver Jubilee (1935) of King George V of the United Kingdom. The Paperbark Forest around the reservoir is a favourite with visiting photographers.
