At the 2008 China Yellow River Tourism Conference, the Qiankun Bay Scenic Area was named "50 Scenic Spots of the Yellow River in China".

Introduction of scenic spots

The Yellow River is known as the Mother River. The five S-shaped turnings formed in Yanchuan are: Whirlpool Bay, Yanshui Bay, Fusi Bay, Qiankun Bay and Qingshui Bay from north to south. Here is the famous first bay of the Yellow River under heaven - Qiankun Bay.

Qiankun Bay is located in Xiaocheng Village, Tugang Township, 38 kilometers south of Yanchuan County Township. The mysterious shape of the "S" large turning left behind an ancient myth. It is said that in ancient times, the Fuxi family of Taihao looked up at the sky, looked down at the earth, looked at the culture and land of birds and animals, took all kinds of things from near to far, and then began to make eight divinatory diagrams in order to communicate the virtue of gods and all kinds of things. "

Looking closely at the Qian Kun Pavilion, the underground is a map of Yin and Yang Tai Chi paved with big stones, corresponding to the Qian Kun Bay below the mountain. On the pillars of the pavilion are inscribed two lines of big characters: "Heaven and earth make Qiankun Bay, Xihuang deduces Taiji map" legend. Fuxi ancestors looked up at the sky in Qiankun Bay and invented the theory of Yin and Yang of Taiji Eight Diagrams. Later generations are here to visit their ancestors and pray for blessings.

Through the Qiankun Pavilion, with a long view, the hills are rolling and the gullies are vertical and horizontal. The Yellow River is like a giant dragon running constantly between the hills and gullies of the Loess Plateau. Hehuai Village and Fuyi River Village on the edge of the S-shaped ancient Yellow River Road are like the "Yinyang Fish" embraced by the giant dragon of the Yellow River. This section of the ancient Yellow River is the Qiankun Bay. She is reverie and thought-provoking. She is like the "river map" and "Luoshu" that the Jade Emperor left in the hilly and gully area of the Loess Plateau in the heaven and earth. She resembles the natural Taiji map created by heaven and earth.
