The description of the Yellow River in the middle school geography textbook: The second largest river in China, with a total length of 5,464 kilometers and a drainage area of 752,443 square kilometers. A large "ji" shape passes through 9 provinces and autonomous regions, including Qinghai, Sichuan, Gansu, Ningxia, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Henan, and Shandong, and flows from Dongying in Shandong into the Bohai Sea.
The history textbook tells us that the Yellow River gave birth to Chinese civilization. The Lantian civilization, Banpo civilization, and Longshan civilization all appeared in the Yellow River Basin, and the four ancient capitals of Xi'an, Luoyang, Kaifeng, and Anyang were also in the Yellow River Basin. Today we all call ourselves "the descendants of Yan and Huang", and the Yan and Huang tribes are also in the Yellow River basin.
In the Chinese textbook, the poet Li Bai told us: If you don’t see me, the water of the Yellow River comes from the sky and rushes to the sea without returning. See you, GaotangmingjingSad and white hair, the morning is like a blue silk and the evening is snowing. Using the Yellow River as a metaphor, it tells us that time is gone forever, and we should cherish every moment of our happy life.
Today, Huanghe, I am here. The destination, the only waterfall in the Yellow River, Hukou Waterfall.
Starting from Yuncheng, head north. Then cross the Yellow River westward from Longkou in Hejin, into the territory of Shaanxi, set off again to the north, and began to drive along the Yellow Sightseeing Road. On the left is the mountain, and on the right is the Yellow River. Every three to five kilometers. There will be an observation deck on the side of the road, where you can stop and take pictures.
This road was not easy to build. It was all driven by mountains.
This It is the Yellow River, worthy of its name, with a visual width of about 200 meters. The other side of the river is Shanxi Province, which has just left.
It’s important to hurry, slightlyMake a stop and set off immediately. When approaching the scenic spot, I saw a road sign that was confused. Go straight ahead to Hukou Waterfall, turn right is also Hukou Waterfall, and the navigation instructions are to turn right. Fortunately, there are policemen. When asked, the scenic spot is the same. Go straight to visit the Shaanxi side, and turn right to visit the Shanxi side. It would be better to ask over there, and the police said it was the same. So go straight.
When approaching Hukou, the rocks of the Yellow River have been washed out of the deep channel for many years.
The group of small waterfalls outside the main waterfall is already very spectacular. The river makes a huge roar and whirls against the two banks.
When approaching the main waterfalls, apart from the sound of booming water, no other sounds can be heard. The billowing yellow water is nearly 20 The height of about meters dropped suddenly, the torrent was surging, the turbid waves rolled, the water splashed, and the smog was misty, The waves roar. Starting from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, countless small water droplets tumbling all the way to growth, engulfing a large amount of sand washed down on the Loess Plateau, have formed a unique and great natural landscape.
Standing at a position almost parallel to the upstream river, you can clearly see the river Shrinking from a width of hundreds of meters to a width of tens of meters, it is the so-called "a pot of a thousand miles of yellow river harvest", and the image of a Hukou is like this.. One is Hukou Township in Shaanxi and the other is Hukou Town in Shanxi.
Is this the scene of a Shaanxi man marrying his aunt? Dry pipes, white turbans, big flower jackets, red shawls, and little donkeys with safflowers on their heads. But they sing Xintianyou?
Unfortunately, I didn’t go in from the Shanxi side. Come again next time. There are always regrets in life.
