Heizhugou Scenic Area

Heizhugou National Forest Park, located in Heizhugou Town, Ebian Yi Autonomous County, Leshan City, Sichuan Province, spans Haqu Township, Lewu Township and Jinyan Township. The total area is 838 square kilometers, the core area is 575 square kilometers, the outer protected area is 263 square kilometers, and the altitude is between 1500 and 4288 meters. Heizhugou Forest Park is widely known as "Bermuda, China" at home and abroad. It is one of the most complete and primitive ecological communities in China.

Heizhugou Forest Park is divided into Heizhugou Secret Range Area, Pyramid Tourist Area and Rhododendron Pool Resort and Leisure Area. The Secret Landing Area includes the Sancha River Basin in the main ditch of Heizhugou, covering an area of 9129.1 hectares. Including water, forest, Canyon and other landscapes, and the mysterious black bamboo groove fog. Two scenic spots are Bifurcated River and Shimenguan.

After deliberation by the China Forest Landscape Evaluation Committee, Heizhugou was approved as a national forest park by the State Forestry Administration on February 22, 2000.

Location context

Heizhugou National Forest Park is located in Ebian County, which spans Heizhugou Town, Haqu Township and Lewu Township. The geographical coordinate of the regional center is 103 longitude east. North latitude 29. The total forest area is about 838 square kilometers, most of which are in the 611, 614 and 616 forest farms of the State-owned Southern Sichuan Forestry Bureau.

geographical environment

topographic features

The geological structure of Heizhugou belongs to Liangshan fold tract and Ebian fault zone in the northern section of Kangdian axis on the western margin of the Yangtze quasi-platform, which mainly consists of Xiaoliangshan skeleton and Emeishan fault block. Paleozoic strata are not well developed, Carboniferous and Devonian are absent in the Upper Paleozoic and Sinian are absent in the Lower Paleozoic. After the sedimentation of Shale and Limestone of Feixianguan Formation and Jialingjiang Formation in the Mesozoic, the whole earth axis uplifts into land, and nine series and 25 groups of strata emerge. This area belongs to Emeishan volcanic rock zone. Heizhugou is located in the transition zone from Sichuan Basin to Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, on the east side of Hengduan Mountains. Controlled by a series of North-South folds and deep faults, the trending of mountains and rivers extends longitudinally from north to south, forming the unique geomorphological features of Heizhugou.

Climatic characteristics

The average annual temperature in Heizhugou is 14.3 C in Sihe Town, 1054 meters above sea level, 10.8 C at the mouth of the ditch (1705 meters), 5.5 C at Shimenguan (2067 meters), 3.2 C at Ronghongde (3125 meters) and 3.0 C at Maanshan Main Peak (4288 meters). Precipitation: The average annual precipitation is between 1900-2000 mm in most areas, and heavy rains occur in summer. The average annual precipitation is 1180 mm in Sihe Town, 1700 mm in ditches, 2260 mm in Shimenguan and 2050 mm in Maanshan. The air in the region is humid, with an average annual relative humidity of more than 85%, annual fog days of more than 320 days and annual precipitation days of more than 270 days. It belongs to subtropical humid monsoon climate, and Ma'anshan is located in the demarcation zone between southeast monsoon and southwest monsoon, which traps warm and wet air from east in the valley, resulting in high temperature, abundant precipitation, more precipitation days and less sunny days in this area. Because of the great difference of terrain height, the temperature varies with altitude, and the vertical difference is obvious, forming the meteorological landscape of Xiaoliangshan Mountain, which is "one mountain divided into four seasons, ten miles in different days; snow cap on the top of the mountain, flowers at the foot of the mountain".

River system

The main stream system is Nahayimo in the upper reaches of Guancao River, a tributary of Dadu River. The tributaries are Heizhugou (Alkali Chahe River), Mother Lift Valley and Baxi Valley. The river network of the ditch system is dendritic. The flow direction of the main and tributaries is obviously controlled by the structures of NW and NE, and the average annual runoff depth is about 1700 mm. The main stream of Heizhugou originates from the north side of Fox Mountain near the main peak of Ma'anshan. It is about 20 kilometers long. Its tributary, Rosoyida, originates from the Ice Dou Lake between Fox Mountain and the main peak, which is 15 kilometers long and has an average annual flow of 9 cubic meters per second. In addition to the vertical and horizontal streams, there are glacial lakes and alpine Haizi under the main peak in Heizhugou area, the largest being nearly 100 mu. In addition, there is a karst lake about 20 meters long in Bahigozi.

Groundwater is the hotspring with the highest temperature in the southwestern margin of Sichuan Basin, as well as the karst spring, which grows in the underground river at the source of Heizhugou for several kilometers.


In Heizhugou Forest Park, there are five kinds of soil: mountain yellow soil (below 1800 meters), mountain yellow brown soil (1800-2200 meters), mountain dark brown soil (2200-2700 meters), mountain brown coniferous forest soil (within dark coniferous forest above 2700 meters), sub-alpine meadow soil (above 3000 meters). There are three kinds of non-zonal soils: yellow limestone soil (below 1800 meters), purple soil and marsh soil. Zonal soil mosaics are patchy.

Resource situation

Historical culture

Origin of Heizhugou Name

There are two ways of saying the name of Heizhugou. One is that Heizhugou is called "Malolada", because there are many dark green arrows growing in the legend ditch. In Yi, "Malo" means bamboo, and "Lada" means valley. Another way of saying is: Heizhugou is called "Hezulada", "Hey" means "fog", "Zu" means "place to live and stay for a long time", "Lada" also means valley, which means that Heizhugou is a valley where fog stays for a long time. The core scenic spot of Heizhugou is located in Heizhugou Town, formerly known as Sikuo Town, which used to be called Yijirada. Local villagers used spring water to grow rice. Somehow, there were often cold and hot strange diseases, people and livestock died, so they had to change their place name to Siyu. In Yi language, "Si" means "death", "Huo" means "swinging", and "Si" means "swinging to death". Because of the need of tourism development, the name of Sikuo Town was changed to Heizhugou Town.

The Mysterious Event of Heizhugou

Mysterious disappearance mystery - people and animals often disappear and die when they enter Heizhugou, which has been reported for a long time. Many media have also disclosed how people disappear after they enter. Many reasons are still a mystery. According to incomplete statistics, since 1951, exploration teams of South Sichuan Forestry Bureau and Sichuan Forestry Department, army surveying and mapping teams and Yi compatriots have been in danger many times in Heizhugou, three of them were killed and three injured, and two of them were missing. According to the local elders of the Yi nationality, in 1950, more than 30 remnants of Hu Zongnan of the Kuomintang crossed the Heizhu ditch with sophisticated weapons. No one survived after entering the ditch. Therefore, there was a saying of "death valley of terror".

The Mystery of Yi Nationality's Ancestral Place

This is a riddle worthy of textual research. Now the original name of Sihe Town is Shihuo, and the Yi language means "to die by swinging". Local Yi compatriots are widely circulated: in the most dangerous area of Death Valley, the open valley above Shimen is where their ancestors lived, and "ancestral training" can not enter, otherwise disaster will occur. Shimenguan is the hinterland of Heizhugou. Many expeditions have gone through a lot of hardships, and ultimately failed to penetrate the dangerous area of Shimenguan. There is a local legend of "no trace of the Orion, no return of the hero once gone".

Latitude puzzle

The latitude of Heizhugou is similar to that of Bermuda Triangle and Egyptian Pyramid. Explorers call it the "latitude line of death". On the east side of Maanshan main peak in Heizhugou, there is a peak at 3998 meters above sea level. The pyramid is the watershed of Heizhugou's two major water systems. It originates from the Sancha River in the north and the Rosoyida River in the south, just like the two jade arms of the "pyramid" extending out to the whole. The hinterland of Heizhugou area is tightly encircled. Heizhugou "pyramid" not only has a very high value of scientific research, but also is a very rare viewing platform.

Mystery of savages

It is also a mystery that there are savages in Heizhugou. It is said that in October 1974 Ran Qianbugan, a rural resident in Lewu, witnessed the savage, a male giant about 2 meters tall, with the same face and human body, covered with yellowish-brown fur. Later, the local people found the traces of the savage. The local people's reverence for the savage exceeded their reverence for the mountain god, calling it "Noshen Loap", meaning "Grandpa of the mountain god". Many people have spoken of the savage so far. Still palpitating, there is a place named "Savage Valley" in Heizhugou.

The Mystery of the Wonderful Fog in the Valley

Heizhugou is often foggy because of its unique terrain and lush vegetation. According to the local Yi people, entering the ditch should not be loud and noisy, otherwise it will alarm the mountain gods. The mountain gods will spit out the green mist when they are angry and take away people and animals. The investigators analyzed the causes of death and disappearance of people and animals in the ditch. The possibility of fog is very high. It is difficult for people to escape from the trap of the death valley because of the unfamiliar terrain when entering the deep mountain valley. There is a local saying: "Shimen Pass, Shimen Pass, mist ditch with Baotan; apes so sad to climb, heroes sad this pass." Once in it, it will surround you and swallow you up. Why is the fog here so unpredictable? Why does it cause casualties? Whether the fog contains other ingredients remains to be studied.

The Mystery of Animals and Plants

There are many rare animals in the world in Heizhugou. Among them, the black-and-white striped giant panda and another kind of black-and-white striped "flower bears" are rare. When visiting the science team, they often see all kinds of wild animals. When they are sleeping at night, they have to take close precautions. But the bears here often go to the Yi Shan cottage to eat cattle, sheep and pigs. The eating habits of giant pandas need to be studied by experts. There have been black leopard caught here. It is said that it is also the first time that a panther has been found in Asia, and there are many activities and rare things that have not been found in the ditch. Wildlife, animal experts have to reveal.

In a word, Heizhugou scenic spot is a "geomantic treasure" left by nature to human beings, a natural museum, a kingdom of animals and plants, especially in the middle and high mountains, which is basically free from human interference and destruction. It is a well-preserved natural gene bank. If we want to study it deeply and uncover its secrets, we must deal with geology, landform and meteorology. Hydrology, biology, culture and history and other disciplines.

Legend of Rhododendron Pond

The local Yi people said that the two Rhododendron ponds separated from each other and could only look at each other from afar, but could not approach each other. If you want to hear both male and female cuckoo ponds whine, no matter how fine the weather is at first, it will start to cloudy immediately, and then it will rain. People will begin to speculate that this is not a couple forced to separate from each other or a couple, the hearts of countless feelings of nostalgia, grievances have no place to tell, so Xiangtou this natural wind and rain? However, whenever people ask the local people what happened to the male and female cuckoo ponds, they always shake their heads and say they don't know. Is it true that you don't know the inside story, or are you afraid of some mysterious force of nature and dare not say a word? We don't know.
