There are different opinions about the legend of the upstream river. To the east of Riyueshan Mountain, the Han people have said for thousands of years that in order to communicate the relationship between the Tibetan and Han nationalities and promote cultural exchanges, Tang Wang Li Shimin married the young and beautiful Wencheng princess to Tubo Songzan Ganbu. On her way to Tibet, Princess Wencheng did not see Chang'an when she arrived at Riyueshan Mountain. She looked to the West desolately, missed her hometown, missed her parents, and was grieved. She moved westward with tears, and the princess's tears converged into this upside-down river. To the west of Riyueshan Mountain, another myth circulated among Tibetans: the Dragon King sent his four sons and daughters to build four rivers, north and south, East and west. When the youngest daughter built the West Sea, 108 rivers were needed. She found 107 rivers, and the last one could not be found. The wise and cunning dragon lady brought a river from the Sun Moon Mountains upside down. This river is the upside down river. The third way of saying is that this river is the reverse of the Dragon king. There is no need to examine which legend is more authoritative, which myth is closer to the orthodox, and each legend adds a mystery to it. And finally one day, when you come to it with the passion of exploration and search, you can hear a sigh, a whisper, a gentle whisper, and it seems that there are ten thousand kinds of tender intestines. Then you will realize that this is a woman's river.
There are different opinions about the legend of the upstream river. One mountain apart, east of Riyueshan, the Han people have said for thousands of years that in order to communicate the relationship between the Tibetan and Han nationalities and promote cultural exchanges, Tang Wang Li Shimin married the young and beautiful Wencheng princess to Tubo Songzan Ganbu. On her way to Tibet, Princess Wencheng did not look back at Chang'an and looked desolately to the west. She missed her hometown, missed her parents, was sad and moved westward. The princess's tears merged into this upside-down river. To the west of Riyueshan, another myth spread among the Tibetans - "The Dragon King sent his four sons and daughters to make the four rivers of East and west. When the youngest daughter made the West Sea, 108 rivers were needed. She found 107 rivers, and the last one was nowhere to be found. The smart and cunning dragon lady brought a river from Riyueshan Mountain, which is called an upside-down river. The third way of saying is that the river is an upside-down river of the Dragon King. The upside-down river originates from the Chahan grassland at the foot of the Shanxi Mountains of Riyueshan Mountain, about 3300 meters above sea level, about 40 kilometers in length, and flows from east to west into the Zaihu of Qinghai Lake, Erhai (commonly known as Xiaohu), so it is called an upside-down river. The Tibetan word "Roumoyong" means an enviable place. It is the smallest branch of the Qinghai Lake water system, not only the winding river, but also the clear river bottom. In fact, the upside-down river was also an east-flowing river. It was injected into the Yellow River with the Buha River and Luohantang River. Because of the crustal changes, the Riyueshan Mountains uplifted, and then it turned to the west to inject into Qinghai Lake, becoming an upside-down river.
Tidal River is located in Tidal River Town on the west side of Riyue Mountain in Qinghai Province and on the east edge of Qinghai Lake. The bifurcation point of National Highway 109 and 214 is named for its water flowing from east to west. The Qinghai-Tibet Highway is separated from here. The main road goes West to the Qaidam Basin of Haixi Prefecture, which leads directly to the south of Tibet and Xinjiang. The branch road goes south to the vast pastoral areas of Hainan, Guoluo and Yushu. The backflow River scenic spot is the third stop that the driver took us to on the first day of the trip to Qinghai Lake. Passing from Zamprinka and Riyueshan, I think the reason why the driver took us is probably because of the convenient transportation and the only way to Qinghai Lake, so he stopped for a moment. The scenic spot is located next to the town of Tiaoliuhe. It is a small area circled by Tibetans along the Tiaoliuhe River. The ticket is 40 yuan. There is no discount ticket for students'tickets. This is a privately operated scenic spot. There are sparse tents and Jingpai inside, which are not very different from the plateau scenery you see outside. The Tiaoliuhe River has not noticed at all. The only spots are some tents and Jingpai. Fan and a brand new stone tablet. See the backflow river is pitifully small, not noticed at all, after entering, you can wear Tibetan clothes to ride yaks for free, the quality of Tibetan clothes is poor, note that the yaks are tied up, just for group photos, we a car of people I went in and turned out in less than 20 minutes, time is tight, do not recommend entering, in addition to wearing Tibetan clothes and looking at people's heads, will not leave you with the post. What impression?
Crossing the difficult Riyueshan Mountains, we arrived at the inverted river. When we rode Qinghai Lake, we all turned over from the Riyueshan Mountains all the way to the inverted river. The inverted river is a small town. The accommodation situation inside is also general. Some hotels are very expensive during the peak season of tourism. Many people must know about the legend of the inverted river, I am right or wrong. I always admire Qinghai Lake, so I always take time to go around it. It is a baptism of my soul and a self-improvement for me. You can see Qinghai Lake when you ride 30 kilometers or so from the upside-down river. The first time you see Qinghai Lake is very happy, and the joy is very huge. When you ride around the lake, you can see many riders from all over the country come here to ride bicycles, so it is really very good. There are many riders, vast grasslands and endless green. Haihu will make you unforgettable all your life. There are endless rapeseed flowers and flocks of yaks and sheep beside Qinghai Lake. You will feel that everything here is like a paradise on earth. And the story of the backflow river, a beautiful legend, tells you how much history has passed. This town is beautiful and very quiet. After arriving here, you will find all the experiences are very good. Meaningful.
To the Qinghai Lake must pass through the town of Dangdanghe, the rush is a strong exotic style. In this small town close to the Qinghai-Tibet Highway, hotels, restaurants and shops have all kinds of services, but why are they not open? The first time I saw herds of cattle and sheep, I was very excited. The upside-down river flows from west to east. So hang, stop here and listen to its legends. I really can't tell the difference between east, west, north and south. The weather is gloomy, and the scenery is greatly discounted! ____________ Ha-ha! Here, when you see the short sleeves, you know it's the tourists. Warmth is the key. For me who runs every day, there's really no altitude reaction, even a short run, no wheeze. To the plateau friends, we should pay attention to exercise!
The upside-down river is because "all the rivers in the world are eastward, only this stream flows westward" and because of the terrain, the river flows upside-down, which is amazing. So I heard that this is the origin of the name of the inverted river. Later, I found many versions on the internet. The inverted river is located in the first town of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau - "the town of inverted river. The town of inverted river is the way to Qinghai Lake. After all, I heard that Princess Wencheng went to Tibet and passed through it. So there is a very large statue of Princess Wencheng in the town. This inverted river is also a scene beside the road. Point, you can visit along the way, the upside-down river is also an entrance to Qinghai Lake. Although the lake is not big, it looks like a very ordinary small lake, but the water here is clear, winding and beautiful. The ticket is 15 yuan to 20 yuan per person, you can wear Tibetan clothes for free photography, you can feel the Tibetan wind around. It usually takes 30 minutes to finish the tour.
An inverted river, a trickling westward stream in China, originated in the Riyueshan Mountains and flowed into Qinghai Lake. Legend has it that Princess Wencheng's tears flowed into a river. Between the vast grasslands, like a rainbow in the rain, like a flowing star in the night sky, simple and beautiful. You can ride Yaks in the upside down river. The naive yak, without any temper, is very cute. There are no vendors and hawkers in the backflow scenic area. The scenic spot is quiet.
There are many legends. It is generally said that only this river flows in a different direction than other rivers. The scenery is also OK, not recommended to buy tickets, because deep into the Qinghai Lake, everywhere is the grassland of Tibetans, you can go deep into, basically 30 yuan per person. You can stop by the roadside and take pictures. That's all.
