Historical evolution

The scenic spot, formerly known as Tianshengqiao, is named after Ludi River flowing through an underground lake to form a deep pool of shafts and through the Tianshengshiqiao outflow. In early 1990, Huaxi District Committee and District People's Government decided to develop Tianhetan as a scenic tourist area. After more than two years of development and construction, it was officially opened to the outside world on March 8, 1992. The scenic area covers an area of 15 square kilometers. It is a typical thin-bedded carbonate exposed block with frequent crepe, staggered faults, obvious joint development and karstification. Therefore, the river valley turns and gullies are vertical and horizontal. The whole scenic area is divided into four major tourist systems: waterfall viewing of calcified beach, water culture of Xiangdigou, water tunnel cruise boat and dry cave tour.

Since the opening of Tianhetan Scenic Area, more than 1.7 million Chinese and foreign tourists have been received in the past ten years. Central leaders Tian Jiyun, Zou Jiahua, Gumu, Jiang Chunyun, Wanguquan, Qin Jiwei, etc. have visited Tianhetan for sightseeing, as well as Zhang Ting, Xie Xiaosi and other well-known personages who have visited Tianhetan and left behind many ink treasures. Wu Zhongbo, a famous poet, was the first to discover and praise Tianhetan. He left behind eight scenery poems of Tianhetan. Now he has compiled and printed books such as "Celebrities Praise Tianhetan", "Dongqiao Tiansheng - Tianhetan" and "Wu Zhongbo's Poems Extract and Detailed Explanation". In particular, Gumu inscribed "Qianzhong unique" highly praised the beautiful scenery of Tianhetan.

Tianhetan Scenic Spot, with its beautiful mountains and rivers and pleasant climate since ancient times, was once a hermit of Wuzhong Tuo in the late Ming and early Qing Dynasties, and left many poems of praise. However, due to the flood problem, it has not been well developed and utilized. "Most afraid of Oolong blowing conch, floods filled with wooden fish shells; cattle and horses rush into the Yintan River, dogs cry and wolves howl ghosts on the slope." The ballad seems to be fading away, but as a villager near Tianhetan, it still has lingering fear. It is a true portrayal of Tianhetan before the water conservancy reform in 1990.

Since 1990, the Huaxi People's Government has established a headquarters of Tianhetan Development Project, vigorously planting trees and afforestation, opening underground river channels, and solving flood problems.

After more than two years of development and construction, it was officially opened to the outside world on March 8, 1992. Tianhetan has become a good place for everyone to travel since then.

On November 28, 2008, Tianhetan Scenic Spot passed the AAAAAA level assessment and formally entered the ranks of national AAAA level tourist areas.
