It's less than 90 km from Lanzhou and about 2 hours'driving. Unexpectedly know this place, drive and play, the scenery is praised, not worthwhile trip! There is a water park halfway up the hill. It is said that we can enjoy the scenery of both sides by boat. We arrived late and did not go by boat. Drive directly to the top of the mountain and cross the Liujiaxia Bridge, you can enjoy the beauty of the whole reservoir. The waters here are open, sparkling, and the water quality is clear, which makes people open-minded. On the other side of the main platform is a shady canyon, which can go down to the bottom, where many local people swim. We rented a life jacket for 5 yuan each, and we could enjoy the water. The water in the reservoir is slightly cold, and it's good to go down in summer. It feels good to swim and eat fish directly in the fishing house on the side. Self-driving friends, if you don't want to catch up with the hot spots, here is absolutely a good place for you to relax.
In the corner of the Liujiaxia Reservoir, the lake is blue, like a big pearl embedded in the top of the loess. In the corner leading to Bingling Temple, the water is yellow and the water is turbulent, just like the Yellow River. Bingling Temple is known as Thousand Buddhas, but some important caves need to pay a high price to see, and some of the Buddha statues can be seen for protection, with wooden doors understandable, but some wooden doors design completely did not take into account people's viewing needs, wooden frames blocked people's sight, photographs were also made fragmented picture, it is regrettable. But in the arid northwest, such a blue water and blue sky waterscape, is also rare! ___________ Especially in the face of the rock wall of Bingling Temple, like a landscape painting, ghost axe and supernatural workmanship! The construction of county towns also has its merits.
Liujiaxia Reservoir is located in the upper reaches of the Yellow River, where the water of the Yellow River turns ninety degrees and flows westward through the valley. The vast lake and beautiful scenery of the reservoir are not only a good place for ecological sightseeing, but also a necessary place for visiting Bingling Temple. Visitors can take a boat to Bingling Temple Grottoes at the southwest end of the reservoir. Generally, the journey takes about 2-3 hours.
Bingling Temple Grottoes have been listed as World Cultural Heritage Sites. The cliffs on both sides are Danxia landforms, standing upright and upright. The art of the Ten Grottoes of Natural Scenery is excellent, and it is absolutely worth visiting. It's hard to get in by car. The last ten kilometers are very difficult to walk, but the best place to drive is free time to watch from high places.
Liujiaxia Hydropower Station is the first one of China's megawatt hydropower stations. The main stream of the Yellow River is located in Yongjing County, Gansu Province. Construction started in September 1958, stopped in 1961, resumed in 1964 and completed in December 1974. The dam is a gravity dam with a maximum height of 147 meters and a total reservoir capacity of 5.7 billion cubic meters. Five units are installed with a total capacity of 12.25 million kilowatts and an annual power generation capacity of 5.58 billion kilowatt-hours. The first 225,000 kW unit was put into operation in March 1969.
I have to sigh at the ingenious work of the nature! ___________ It's disappointing and frustrating to see the scenery on both sides of the Taiwan Strait and the large area of garbage floating on the water. After all, it's not easy to come from Sichuan. However, since the color of the water at the confluence of the Yellow River and Taohe River changed, the scenery was really superb. When I arrived at Bingling Temple, it really shocked me. At last, I was able to live up to the whole journey of the mountain and water.
No matter what, the water at the source of the Yellow River is so clear! Our car has been driving along the reservoir to the Liujiaxia Bridge, with a viewing platform, parking and sightseeing. Seeing the blue sky and white clouds, the water reflects the distant peaks, so shocking. They all say that the water of the Yellow River comes from the sky. How pure the water of the source is!
