brief introduction

Ningxia Shuidonggou Site Tourist Area is located in Linhe Town, Lingwu City, Ningxia. It is 19 kilometers west of Yinchuan City, 30 kilometers south of Lingwu City and 11 kilometers east of Hedong Airport. It is located in the core part of Yinchuan East Tourist Zone. It connects with Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, and is a link connecting Ningxia and Mongolia tourism, covering an area of 7.8 square kilometers.

Shuidonggou is the earliest Paleolithic cultural site excavated in China. It is known as the birthplace of Chinese Prehistoric Archaeology and the historical witness of cultural exchange between China and the West. It is a national key cultural relic protection unit, national AAAAA tourist attraction, national geological park. It has been listed as one of the 100 sites protected by the state as well as one of the "100 archaeological discoveries with the greatest significance of Chinese civilization". He was awarded the silver prize of "50 places in China that are most worth visiting by foreigners".

Shuidonggou site records the historical witness of ancient human reproduction and struggle with nature, and contains rich and precious prehistoric data. It shows people a picture of the survival of ancient human beings 30,000 years ago. It is the only Paleolithic site officially excavated in the Yellow River region in China so far. Over the past 80 years, more than 30,000 stone tools and 67 fossils of ancient animals have been unearthed in Shuidonggou after six archaeological excavations. Among them, some stone products, tools and techniques of making and repairing stone tools, which constitute the cultural foundation of Shuidonggou, can be comparable to those of Moster and Orena human habitats in Europe, West Asia and North Africa. Especially the large number of levaloua stone cores unearthed are similar to the shape of the ancient orina culture in Europe. Famous foreign archaeologists consider this phenomenon as the "assimilation effect of long-distance migration" of human beings. The culture represented by Shuidonggou Site plays an important role in explaining the origin of regional stone technology tradition, the excavation and variation of ancient culture, and the late renewal of human migration, diffusion and exchange in Northeast Asia. It is of great significance to the comparative study of eastern and Western cultures more than 30,000 years ago.

Shuidonggou area is also the Grand View Garden of the ancient Great Wall, beacons, castles, ditches, piers and abutments of the Ming Dynasty in northern China. Within the reserve, the winding East Great Wall, the towering piers, the primitive and mysterious castle, and the winding and deep ditches are all too dazzling to be seen. It is reminiscent of the magnificent scene of the time when "the armoured men rushed to battle with spears and the generals drew their swords to chase Hu soldiers".

Shuidonggou is located in the southern edge of Ordos Platform. The Yadan landform created by nature makes it full of vigorous and peculiar charm of barren valley. It has gone through millions of years of wind and sand erosion. There are more than 20 wonderful landscapes of earth forest, such as Devil City, Wo Camel Ridge, Sky Cliff, Clouded Valley, Tamarix Valley and so on, which make people desperate and strange. There are vast old heavenly wastes and remote sighs.

Natural scenery

The lake covers an area of nearly 300,000 square meters. Four original ecological wooden bridges, two pavilions and hundreds of birds gather in reeds on the lake. Green lakes, crisp birds and beautiful pictures are good places for leisure and entertainment. It is rare to see the green ripples in Hongshan Lake, the cruise ships and the Great Wall along the waterfront. It is not interesting to see the magnificent ancient Great Wall on the cruise ships. When you have not yet stepped out of the fairy tale world of the woodland landscape, get off the boat and boarded the dock, and fall into a paradise, that is, Shazao Bay in the scenic area.
