Characteristics of scenic spots

Second, "the first bend of the Yellow River under heaven" is the only sharp bend on the Yellow River that is less than 90 degrees outside the ancient city of Tongguan, forming a unique and spectacular "Yellow River Tide" .
The third is the magnificent confluence of the Yellow River and the Weihe River. Because the Yellow River and the Weihe River are blue, a rare yellow-blue River spectacle has been formed in the Yellow River section after the confluence.
Fourthly, the Yellow River in Tongguan Section shifts eastward from north to south. The Yellow River in Weitongguan is close to the Bank of Henan for a long time. There is no bog and mud beach between the banks. It can be launched with its feet stretched out and is very easy to be exploited and utilized.
