Cengklik Reservoir was built in the range of 1926-1928 by the Dutch Colonial Government. In 1970 the reservoir was still able to accommodate 17.5 million cubic meters of water but in 1998 the water capacity decreased to 12.5 million cubic meters. It is estimated that the current reservoir is only able to accommodate about 9 million cubic meters. The
reservoir is damaged due to the high process of silting. Currently Cengklik is better known as sunset hunting location for photographers as well as a fishing spot for the locals. Cengklik is located close to Adi Sumarmo Airport, Solo. At clear weather it has a beautiful view with the mountains Merapi and Merbabu at the background.
