Forming characteristics

The Stone Forest of the Yellow River was formed in the Early Pleistocene of Cenozoic Quaternary 2.1 million years ago. Due to crustal movement, weathering, rain erosion and other geological processes, it formed a spectacular stone forest landform with yellow conglomerate as the main form. In the scenic area, steep cliffs are flying over the sky, with thousands of scenes, peaks turning around and changing step by step. Stalagmites are mostly between 80 and 100 meters high and up to more than 200 meters high. Their shapes are made in heaven and earth, and their ghost axes and magic craftsmanship are like masterpieces of sculpture. Narrow valleys, such as snake extinction, are named after ditches. From southeast to northwest, there are eight ditches. There are many scenic spots in Yinmagou Grand Canyon, such as lion Dangguan, Falcon looking back, elephant absorbing water, thousand sails advancing, taking sutras from the west, couples under the moon, Quyuan asking the sky and so on. They are both vivid and vivid.

The Yellow River Stone Forest Scenic Area combines the Yellow River, Stone Forest, Desert, Gobi, Oasis, Farm and other resources ingeniously. The landscape is interdependent, dynamic and static, and the momentum is magnificent. The scenic spots are suitable for sightseeing, adventure, vacation and leisure, religious tourism, Silk Road tourism, conference tourism, etc.

The stone forests of the Yellow River were formed in the geological era of the end of the Tertiary and the beginning of the Quaternary four million years ago. Because of Yanshan movement, crustal uplift, river bed incision, weathering, rain erosion and gravity collapse, a landform spectacle of stone forest dominated by yellow-brown river-lacustrine sandy conglomerate was formed.

。 In the scenic area, steep cliffs soar into the sky, with various shapes and turns of peaks and loops, and the scenery moves with thousands of steps. Stone pillars and stalagmites are generally between 80 and 200 meters. Expert investigation and evaluation confirmed that the Yellow River Stone Forest is a natural wonder of China and has great value for tourism development. There are eight gullies in the Shilin scenic area. Under the strong uplift of the crust, the Yellow River Valley forms deep-cut valleys, which widen the valleys continuously. Under the action of water and gravity, local weak layers cut down rapidly, forming a large number of stone peaks and pillars along both sides of the valley. At the same time, they are transformed by wind erosion, forming many structures such as window lattices on the cliff wall, under the strong action of water erosion and wind erosion. The unique landscape has been formed. The developed Yinmagou Grand Canyon has many scenic spots, such as lion Dangguan, Falcon retrospect, elephant water absorption, thousand sails race, menstruation in the west, couples under the moon, Quyuan questioning the sky and so on, which are both vivid and vivid.

The Yellow River Stone Forest Scenic Area ingeniously combines the Yellow River, Stone Forest, Desert, Gobi, Oasis, Farms and other resources. The landscape is interdependent, dynamic and static combination, and the momentum is magnificent. This area is suitable for exploration, novelty hunting, drifting, rock climbing, leisure vacation and geological investigation. It has become the scene shooting base of western movies and sci-fi films with its characteristics of heroism, adventure, curiosity, ancient, wild and secluded. After the TV series "World Granary", "Western Hot Land", "Sweat and Blood BMW", "Wonderful Legend" and "Great Dunhuang" were broadcast, the Stone Forest of the Yellow River became more famous in the world. The Yellow River Stone Forest, Shoulushan Forest Park, Wufoyan Temple and Yongtai Turtle Town form the tourism skeleton of Jingtai. They are adjacent to Tianzhu Small Three Gorges in the West and Shapotou in the north and Zhongwei, forming a golden tourist route.

Coagulated and towering

On September 3, 2005, I visited the Yellow River Stone Forest, which is located between Jingtai and Baiyin in Gansu Province. I was deeply shocked by the scenery and the magic of creation there. I visited the scenic spots of the film and television series "World Granary", "Western Hot Land", "Sweat and Blood BMW", "Wonderful Legend", "Yellow River Wave", "Snow Flower That Goes with the Wind", "Panlong Cave", "Shenlong Cave". Gu participated in "raft rafting" and visited "farmhouse jujube garden" naturally. Until today, it is impossible to record the impression or understanding of the Yellow River Stone Forest. Although the pen is clumsy and thin, it is always a bit of experience or release.

The Yellow River Stone Forest

Jingtai Yellow River Stone Forest is located in the southeast of Jingtai County, Baiyin City, adjacent to Longwan Village, Zhongquan Township. It is surrounded by mountains, quiet environment, fresh air and beautiful scenery. Paleolithic forest group is the most distinctive, large-scale, covering an area of about 10 square kilometers. Stone forest is composed of orange conglomerate, with a height of 80-100 meters and a maximum of more than 200 meters. In the scenic area, the canyons are winding, the peaks and forests are standing, the cliffs are overhead, the momentum is magnificent, the natural shape is colorful and vivid, with strange, heroic, dangerous, ancient, wild and secluded advantages.

The stone forest landscape in the scenic area is interdependent with the meandering landscape of the Yellow River, and there is movement in the quiet. Longwan Oasis and Datan Gobi, two kinds of ecology, one river separated, strong contrast, the continuous sand dunes and the oasis at the heart of the river are far away from each other. Nine curves of the Yellow River make Longwan more beautiful. Wandering around the scenic area, there are many changes in color, shape, perilous, straight, bright and quiet, ancient and new, which have a natural charm of large gardens. There are many natural scenic spots in the scenic area, each with its own characteristics. About 48 kilometers downstream from the Shilin scenic spot of the Yellow River can reach a pumping station of Jingdian Project, which has the reputation of "the best in China". It is a rare human landscape. During this period, the waterway is smooth and smooth, the scenery on both sides is fresh and romantic. If you use a cruise ship to connect, it will add to the splendor. Traveling westward to Shoulu Mountain, you can visit Yongtai City, the ancient city of Ming Dynasty.

Jingtai Yellow River Stone Forest Scenic Area is composed of high-grade natural tourism resources. It is a big city with natural scenery from east, west, north and south. It is rare in the whole country and unique in the north. Because of its unique shape, large scale and superior combination of scenic spots, it can be called "the natural wonder of China".

Boiling peak ridge

On September 3, 2005, I visited the Yellow River Stone Forest in the National Geopark between Jingtai and Baiyin in Gansu Province. I was deeply shocked by the scenery and the magic of creation there. I visited the scenic spots of the film and television series "World Granary", "Western Hot Land", "Sweat and Blood BMW", "Wonderful Legend", "Yellow River Wave", "Snow Flower That Goes with the Wind", and went to Panlong Cave "Shenlong Cave". Gu participated in "raft rafting" and visited "farmhouse jujube garden" naturally. Until today, it is impossible to record the impression or understanding of the Yellow River Stone Forest. Although the pen is clumsy and thin, it is always a bit of experience or release.

This is the scene of a luxury dance. The dancers dance tirelessly and swiftly until they solidify into the agility of such an old-fashioned scene. During our walking and looking, our thoughts and consciousness produced an indescribable hallucination. We wanted to shout wildly for the voice of the soul that danced for millions of years. It was far-fetched and attached to the self-slight praise.

This is a grand dance. The planner just designed the beginning, without considering the end of the song or guessing that it was too late? Stone forests follow the bend of the Yellow River and drag the flow of the Yellow River. This scene keeps a thrilling excitement. At first glance, it is tens of millions of years that have passed by. Laolong Bay is like a long, sparkling runway. The Yellow River beats the waves and flows past the steep rocks in the towering stone forests, heading stubbornly towards the dry far north. Wind blowing, water rinsing, tens of millions of years, agility and meditation, all the way singing and dancing carnival. Suddenly it's eternity. Stop there and turn around the head, flying hair, shiny skirts suddenly passive knot, the smiles between faces have not yet been erased. If one day, you also come to the Stone Forest, will you be moved and shocked by the natural condensation of the soul under the clear and vast sky? Nature's magic brushwork is flying, even if you let go of your imagination and gallop your mind. Looking at sharp or conical peaks, the base of which is connected by clusters, is the development of stone forest morphology. As long as you can associate with the images, there is no exception to live in front of your eyes, look up to admiration, vivid spirit; you did not think of a scene to you, too many eyes. The peaks are gathered and the peaks and ridges are boiling. The stone forest of the Yellow River, with its non-stone and non-rock characteristics, holds up a three-dimensional myth on this land. Yadan, Danxia, Fenglin as one of the landscapes of the magnificent scene, knife-edge crowded, thousands of troops surging, ten thousand horses galloping, this is like a battlefield of fighting, the wind walking in the meantime inspiring the clang of metal collision, it is no longer an exaggerated stage, the scene is no longer a grand dance floor. Through the Stone Forest, we can't help feeling the masculine body, the silent manner and the firm face of the Loess Plateau. It stands in the wind and rain day after day, never willing to give up the attachment to the earth and yearning for the sun.

Is the wind picking or the water rinsing casting such a landscape? Ling Qi is so strong and fierce, and the drifting voice is so quiet and beautiful, which combines rigidity and softness. The connected dangerous peaks are like teeth of a comb, with heavy loess on their backs, and their dreams of combing the high blue sky and white clouds come out loud. The wind flowed between the combs, rubbing a dull sound, grateful Ling Lizhi, but this feeling was all absorbed by the sand trampled in the river underfoot, people undoubtedly feel in the contradiction of steel wool, dull, Fengchuan. Lin Feng is a hundred feet long and needs to be looked up. The non-stop wind circuitous between the crests, polishing the peak forest smoothly and perfectly strange. Wind can also drill many caves in rock mass, with different circles and styles, which attract people's imagination and imagination. There are also some peaks and forests as soft and colorful as flowing in the water.

In fact, it is a masterpiece of wind and water. They have jointly drawn magnificent and magnificent landscapes. They have penetrated humanistic thinking into recent scenic spots, such as looking at the autumn moon, couples under the moon, taking sutras from the west, flying rocks, Wuzhishan, Santa Claus, Mulan expedition, lion customs, Falcon retrospect, elephant water absorption, thousand sails race, taking sutras from the West and Quyuan questioning the sky. Lifelike and lifelike. I'm ashamed that I can't describe it rationally with accurate and abundant geographic knowledge, but I find that the sandstone is so firm that it pokes up tens of feet and stands hundreds of meters. It forms cylindrical, conical, shoot-like, mushroom-like and castle-like peak forests with different colors of red, yellow, black and orange. What is most surprising and regrettable is that the strange, noisy and quiet elements that we can't express in words are so deep, heavy and massive that they spread over vast areas and towering. At the port of the scenic spot (drinking horse ditch), waiting for a team of bicycles to greet tourists from all directions. There are mule carts, donkey carts, carriages and saddled horses. The ornament of the bicycle is bright and gorgeous without losing its primitive appearance. When people get on the bicycle, the radicalization of the times tends to be gentle. It reflects the ease and comfort that they have not seen for a long time. In the competition between modern and primitive, human nature is returning to nature. Walk into the main ditch of the stone forest - Yinma Grand Canyon, the ancient stone forest group scoured by the ancient Yellow River takes you across time and space to think. But when you see the long river embracing the sun, Emfeng connecting the clouds, the stone forest towering, the dangerous cliff crossing, the steep rocks flying over the sky, the shapes are various, the pace changes; the spirit of the Yellow River Stone Forest standing up in a row, in clusters, that should be immortal? At sunset, along the rugged mountain road, circling upward, that is, climbing the peak from the valley, we climbed onto the viewing platform, looking at the sea of bamboo shoots, watching these bamboo shoots grow into a forest at a moment of high pitch, straight into the sky, mountains and waters depend on each other, moving and static combination, momentum is enormous. Looking at Longwan Village, located at the elbow of Longwan Bay, it is a paradise that rivers reflect Chongshan, meandering current, mountain villages lie down, old houses and rafts, old rafters, old roads of new beaches, shady pavement, Green River bay, jujubes full of branches, melons and fruits overflowing with fragrance, waterwheel singing late, waves restrain skin rafts. The Yellow River Stone Forest is a masterpiece transcending time and space in the rich dreamlike color of heaven and earth. In this magical world, the tall and magnificent Canyon stone forest is interdependent with the meandering waters of the Huanghe River, which stretches back and forth, combines movement and quiet, and combines rigidity and softness; facing the gap between the peaks of the setting sun, golden arrows fall out, and the whole Yellow River Stone Forest is a transverse sunshine waterfall, which is swept up by the wind. Some dust covered the waterfall with a cicada-like hazy veil, static, dynamic and orderly, slowly floating some of the golden and purple romance, heart suddenly rose a line of soft, soft. When the sun is gone, people are reluctant to move down the mountain. At this time, the horizon has several purple red shooting along the gap of the stone forest to the distant mountains, the distant mountains also gradually darkened from purple, dormant in the whole night.

Nine bends of the Yellow River and ten thousand feet of stone forest! The Yellow River Stone Forest is a wonder in the world and a magnificent sight in the world!

Extraordinary as if done by the spirits

Longwan Village, Zhongquan Township, Jingtai County, Gansu Province, where the Yellow River turns an S-shaped bend. Jiuqu of the Yellow River, Longwan Jiaojiao, newly listed as the "National Geopark" of the Yellow River Stone Forest towers on both sides of the Yellow River.

From the Stone Forest View Terrace overlooking: the surrounding canyon cliff overhead, natural shape vivid. Longwan Village is separated from the Datan Gobi River by scattered houses, curling smoke, and a stretch of sand dunes across the river heart, forming a remote and vast western style painting.

From the viewing platform winding down, turning twenty-two bends, and then through a jujube forest and cropland, arrived at the Yellow River. Standing by the river, turning around and looking up, peaks and forests stand tall, seats are connected, momentum is magnificent, quite with the charm of natural gardens. Stone forests can be visited along the left, right or across the Yellow River. In the scenic area, the canyons are winding and tortuous, named after the ditches: Qikou ditch, Panlong ditch, Xiwang ditch and so on. In addition, there are dozens of caves such as kilometer cave, Panlong cave and so on.

Most of the stalagmites here are between 80 and 100 meters high, up to 200 meters high. They are made of orange gravel. They are like masterpieces of sculpture. We went left to the entrance of Yinmagou and took a donkey cart dressed up by local farmers. Entering the canyon, there are huge stalagmites, stone men, stone bells, cliffs and grottoes on both sides. The peaks turn around and the scenery changes step by step. People named the stone scenery as elephant water absorption, thousand sails race, companion camel, mother of the Yellow River and so on. It has both physical and spiritual features and is lifelike.

Panlong Cave can be reached along the right bank of the Yellow River. It is named for a stone scene outside and inside the cave that resembles the legendary "dragon and phoenix". In late spring or early autumn, mist floats out of the cave in the morning and evening. It is said that it is the dwelling of dragons and immortals. The gift of nature adds to the mystery of Panlong Cave.

Villagers here say that their ancestors benefited from Panlong Cave to escape bandits and take refuge. This village has only continued to this day. Now it is also the place where the local people believe in religion, so it is also called "Xinglong Temple".

The natural trend of the Yellow River has created this open dam beach. A new "Holy Land Club" has been built in the center for visitors to eat, drink and lodge. It is reported that four-star tourist resort is being planned and constructed here.

According to reports, due to crustal movement, weathering, water erosion and gravity collapse, it was discovered and published in 1990 by geological survey. With the development of scenic spots, tourists have been increasing in the past two years. Wang Lixia, tour guide of Gansu Tianqiao International Tourist Company, said that after spring, the grass and trees were green again, and Longwan showed the nature of the oasis, which was in sharp contrast with Shilin and Datan Gobi. At that time, the scenery was even more beautiful.

Mr. Aten Ramsundersingh, director of the UNESCF Water Engineering Association, told me that Jordan, Israel and the United States all have scenery similar to stone forests, but no great rivers like the Yellow River pass by. He said that here, human beings can feel quiet, peaceful, more easily find the end of the soul, so that you can calm down to enjoy nature.

Gansu Yellow River Stone Forest is located in Longwan Village, Jingtai County, 70 kilometers north of Baiyin City, Gansu Province, with an area of about 10 square kilometers. Because of the crustal movement, the Yellow river-lake facies sandy conglomerate dominated the formation of stone forest landforms with various shapes. Stone Forest Scenic Spot cliff overhead, thousands of scenery, peak circuit turn, step by step scenery change, its shape is made of nature, ghost axe magic work, just like the masterpiece of sculpture dream. "Avalokitesvara meditation", "Quyuan inquires about heaven", "Mulan expedition", "couples under the moon", "Shili screen", "Ancient overpass road", "a line of heaven" and other stalagmite forest landscapes with different shapes up to tens of meters or even hundreds of meters can be seen everywhere. The Yellow River, the mother river of the Chinese nation, forms a S-shaped backwater bay which enters the Ningxia boundary from south to north. On the East Bank of the river, besides the towering stone forests, there are hillside rivers and lush "Longwan Oasis". Expert evaluation: Gansu Yellow River Stone Forest concentrates on the country's geological and geomorphological success, excellent combination, dynamic and static combination, rare in China, unique in the northwest, can be called a natural ecological tourism scenic spot resources with great development value and high grade.

Superior combination of high-grade natural scenery. In this magical world, the tall and inspiring Canyon stone forest is interdependent with the meandering landscape of the Yellow River, which is stretching and swinging. It combines movement and quiet, and is strong and flexible. The ancient and lush Longwan Oasis is separated from the dried and overflowing Dabi Gobi. The contrast between the two ecologies is striking and strong. The scenic spot shows the superior combination of pure nature, large structure, multi-level and close interface, which is full of strong primitive ancient rhyme, amazing and lingering. Since the 1990s, domestic geologists and tourism experts have made many investigations and concluded that the Yellow River Stone Forest concentrates on the great achievements of the country's geology and landform, which is rare in China and unique in Northwest China. It can be called "the natural wonder of China", and it is expected to become another well-known tourist attraction in the whole province and the whole country.

The first time I saw the Stone Forest of the Yellow River, I was shocked by its magnificent and magnificent scenery. Compared with other well-known scenic spots in China, the stone forest of the Yellow River, with its ancient, strange, heroic, dangerous, wild and secluded advantages, fully embodies the characteristics of the rough, vigorous, simple and heavy Western region, which enables tourists to cultivate their temperament and cultivate their body and mind while returning to nature and enjoying strange scenery.

If there is no footbridge to climb to the top of Nanshan Mountain, you can see the peak forest, meandering stream, oasis and gobi.

It's refreshing. And the primitive power that has not changed in the vicissitudes of life, the poor spirit that permeates the canyon, the magnificence that overflows in the sunshine, teaches people to open their eyes when they feel it. As for the danger of Guanyin Cliff, the depth of Laolonggou, the magic of Panlong Cave, the seclusion of Qingliang Temple, the mysterious and confusing scenery of ten valleys around the village, the magnificent momentum of stone forest pillars with ancient charm, and the dream of mountains, the spiritual beauty of rivers, the silence of oases and the leisure of Gobi in the whole square kilometre scenic area, not only make people forget their worries in meditation, but also transcend them. Dust-free vulgar, more attractive and inspiring.

Time and space with a long history, create magical power, shake the skeleton of mountains and rivers to develop into a variety of artistic forms. The divine work of nature enlightens people's wisdom and triggers people's inspiration. People multiplying and living in this magical land, with their wisdom and simple and kind thoughts and feelings, have created a glorious historical culture and accumulated a profound cultural heritage of the scenic spot.

In order to further excavate the connotation of tourism culture in scenic spots, create brand-new image of scenic spots and create brand-new tourism leisure and entertainment projects, Jingtai Yellow River Stone Forest Scenic Area Management Committee entrusted domestic famous tourism culture experts to carry out comprehensive packaging planning for the scenic spots, and took the lead in putting forward the "Chinese Yellow River" with the astonishing discovery of "the Yellow River Stone Forest emerges as the largest God turtle in the world". As a unique, monopolistic and irreplaceable concept of tourism culture, Shentortoise culture locates scenic spots as "the natural and cultural wonderland of Northwest China" and "the birthplace of the Chinese nation's Shentortoise culture". Combining with the geological wonders and oasis scenery of the Yellow River Stone Forest, a series of tourism and recreational projects will be launched one after another around the brand image of "Tour the Yellow River Stone Forest Green Treasure Land, View the World's Largest Turtle", which has set off a shocking and strong tourism upsurge of the Yellow River Stone Forest and the Shentortoise culture in Gansu Yellow River Basin and even in the whole northwest of China.
