River bed characteristics

The surface elevation of the two sides of the Lijiang River in Guilin is between 154 and 132 meters, belonging to the accumulation of the first-order terrace. The upper part is silty clay with a thickness of 2-4 meters, and the lower part is sandy layer with a thickness of 20-30 meters. The width of the channel is between 125~585 meters and the river bank is 3~5 meters high. The river bed is composed of sand and pebble, and often has long grass. The river bed and the beach are interconnected, and the beach is long and deep. The beaches are mainly distributed in Dongjiaxiang, Xinquan, Jiefangqiao, Xiangshan, Lijiang River Bridge, Baiguoshu Village, Wujia, Wang Jia, Zhemu Town and the vicinity of Xiaolongmen Village. In dry season, the depth of the beach is generally less than 1 meter, and the length of the beach is generally 500-1000 meters, of which Wujiatan is the longest, reaching 1970 meters. The deep pools on the riverbed are mainly distributed in the vicinity of Baishitan, Sizhou Bay, Mulongdu, Fubo Mountain, Jiuliang Wharf, Xiangshan, Nanxi Mountain, Jingpingshan, Huziyan, Longmen Village and Majiafang. When the river reaches deep pool, the water depth is more than 6 meters, the deepest is Jingpingshan pool, the water depth is more than 14 meters, followed by Nanxi Mountain and Majiafang, the water depth is more than 12 meters.

The Yangshuo section of the Lijiang River is the most typical karst peak forest landform in the world. It is also the most beautiful river in Guangxi. Beginning with the Qianjing Village near Yangshuo County, the Lijiang River enters the valley, winding among the mountains, and the valley is 400 meters deep. The Lijiang River is not only a deep valley, but also a large riverbed drop, averaging four thousandths, forming many beaches, continents, Gorges and rocks. There are 38 banks in the Lijiang River in the county. There are 29 flood plains and floodplains with different widths on both sides of the river, covering an area of 2397 mu. The soil is thick and soft, rich in organic matter, moderate acidity and alkalinity, and high natural fertility.

, is located in the northeastern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Traditionally, the beginning of the Lijiang River is Maoer Mountain in Yuechengling, the source of the Guijiang River. Modern hydrology is defined as Lingqu Estuary in Rongjiang Town, Xingan County, and the end point is Pingle Sanjiang Estuary. The upper reaches of the Lijiang River are the large dissolved rivers and the lower reaches are the traditional Guangxi river. The Lingqu estuary is the boundary between the Great Solution and Lijiang sections of the Guijiang River, and the Lipu and Gongcheng estuaries are the boundary points between the Lijiang and Guijiang sections. The total length of Lijiang River is 164 km. The river bed along the river is mostly water quality pebble, with small amount of sediment and clear water, and the two sides are mostly karst landforms. Rich in tourism resources, the famous Guilin Scenery is on the Lijiang River.

The upper reaches of the Guijiang River, a tributary of the Xijiang River (the upper reaches of the Pearl River), lie in the northeastern Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Historically, there are three versions of the birthplace of the Lijiang River: (1) Shuijing Zhu said, "Lishui also comes out of the Yanghai Mountains", "Xiangli is of the same origin, divided into two parts, Lishui in the South and Xiangchuan in the north". Song Fan Chengda's "Guihai Yu Heng Zhi" said: "The two rivers of Hunan and Lishui all come from the sea of Lingchuan, traveling a hundred miles, dividing north and south. North says Xiang... South, Li,... ". (two) in the five to eight years of Qing Dynasty Qianlong, the Yellow Sea, Xingan's magistrate, Li Shui originated from the double well in the south of the county. (three) Tang Zhaomin said in the preface of the "soul canal literature", "... Lishui (Lishui), in fact, is the source of today's Xing'an County West Yangang, upstream called Yuanjiang, middle called Shilong River, downstream called Qingshui River, water flow more than 30 miles of a river, that is, the history of the famous Ba (zero water). "We know that water is water." They all refer to the source of the canal, not today's Lijiang River. The Lijiang River rises in Huajiang Township, Xing'an County, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region (the highest peak of the 400-mile Yuechengling Mountains) on the southern side of the Laoshan boundary, 1732 meters (the base of the Yellow Sea) north of the eastern Maoer Mountains. Surrounded by mountains and boundless bamboo seas, the Wugui River and Shamu River, the main source of the Lijiang River, meet at the foot of the mountain in the Shili Gorge (Maoershan Shili Gorge), connecting the Longtang River in the middle and west of the South Stream, the Dongna Heidong River, and the Liudong River after the confluence of the three rivers, flowing southward to the Simen River and the Huangbai River and the Chuanjiang River, known as the Darong River, to the Rongjiang Town. The nearby Lijiang River joins the Ling River. The Lijiang River flows through Guilin in Lingchuan County and joins the Gongcheng River in the north of Pingle Town, Pingle County. The whole length of the Lijiang River reaches 164 kilometers. Pingle town is called Gui River below. The river continued to flow southward to Wuzhou and into the Xijiang River. 

In Xing'an County, the river mouth from the Rongjiang Town, the ancient canal Lingqu, the starting point for the Lijiang River (ancient hydrology: Lingqu for the source of the Lijiang River ), after the small Rongjiang exit.

In the county of Lingchuan, the village is located in the village of Xiao River. The drainage area of the Lijiang River is 2173.29 square kilometers. The total length is 45 kilometers, divided into two sections: the upper section is 33.5 kilometers, and the river surface is 160 meters in width. Since Xiaorongjiang Village, it has flowed through Xiabei, Yantou, Sanjie, Fuqiudu, Feitou, Shuangtan, Cui Jiawei and Sanchawei, and successively flowed into Guilin along the Lower Qin Dynasty to the Great Fair along the Baiyun River, the Lujiang River, the Ganjiang River, the Falls, the Sanbaiyuan River and the Gantang River. The next 11.5 km, the average width of the river 220 meters, are all pebbles, sand, mud, river bottom. From Lijiao Village in Dadi Town to Nancun County, through Danxing, Dadi Town to Nancun, Nahuangsha River, Jiansha River, Chaotian River, south to Qingshuitan by the ancient East water, out of the suburbs of Guilin City, Xiayangshuo County.
