Drifting--the best in the world

Western Henan Grand Canyon Drifting - - The top domestic drifting in Western Henan Grand Canyon, which invested nearly 100 million yuan, integrates the five characteristics of "cave drifting, underground river drifting, Canyon drifting, waterfall drifting and swirling drifting". The drifting river runs 6 kilometers, traverses three caves, passes through two swirling drifting caves, and leaps over Bailong Waterfall, Jiuqu Waterfall and Dasong Waterfall.

From the drifting wharf to the first ferry, there is about one kilometer of gentle water with rippling water potential. After that, the water flows downstream, so you can not be mad, not screaming! Sometimes the drifting river is quiet, sparkling and shy. Sometimes the light boat flies straight down, causing thousands of waves. Suddenly, the obedient light boat suddenly becomes a fierce horse, with tense muscles and left-right collision. The scream sounded through the valley, but it was as beautiful as the sound of heaven.

Dasongtan Waterfall

The fall of the Dasongtan Falls is more than 40 meters wide and about 5 meters wide. Just look at the water flowing down from the cliff cliff and splashing the beads with jade. It looks like a flying white drill and a huge exclamation mark. It is not only magnificent, but also has a grand voice, like thunder from afar, like drum from near, magnificent and magnificent, with thousands of meteorologies. There is a big deep pool under the waterfall. There are many fish, turtles, shrimps and crabs in the pool. The water is clear and the scenery is charming.

Barrier rock cliff

It is said that Wang Mang sent troops here to catch up with Liu Xiu, and the pursuit of troops was to arrow Liu Xiu to death. Seeing huge stones here, he quickly hid behind them before he died. The chasing arrows fired at the boulders and the cliffs behind them, shooting numerous small holes in the boulders and cliffs. Look carefully at the whole stone covered with numerous small holes.

Zhuchi Lake

Zhuangzuchi: According to legend, Liu Xiu was named for washing his feet here. There is a stone chair on the pool, which is naturally formed. There are backs behind the ten pools and handrails on both sides. It is said that the pool bath can dispel illness and strengthen the body, and will surely ensure your physical and mental health and long life. It's lifelike.

Tin dog's moon watching

Heavenly Dog Looking at the Moon: The two big stones on the mountain are like two little dogs. They have one front, one side and live dragons. It's amazing!

Tazhong well

Tanzhong Well: As the name implies, there are wells in the pool. This well is located in the small pool, naturally generated, more than 2 meters deep, very similar to a deep well, which is really strange.

Drinking trough

Drinking trough: This section of the stream is like a trough. The rocks on the bank are like horses. The horse head dives into the stream. The horse is on the bank. The stream rises and falls. The water level is different. It seems to be caused by the drinking of horses. Look, here is a horse head, there is also a horse head, which is bent over the stream to drink.

Three fold Canyon

Triassic canyon: Pearl pool and the upstream Zhennu pool, Yuyuan pool together known as the Triassic canyon, three waterfalls around, connected by pools, skillful. Legend has it that Liu Xiu was chased to this place by Wang Mang at that time. He was tired of horses and his mouth was dry. Liu Xiu stooped down to drink water. When he was about to drink, the river channel suddenly fell down and fell down again. At that time, when he met a girl named Quanqiu, who was having difficulty drinking water, he raised her hands to hold water and handed it up. Liu Xiu drank water. From the spring dove girl's hand, the river channel fell down again, and three times it fell down to form three deep pools of waterfalls. On this occasion, Liu Xiu and Quanqiu fell in love at first sight. After Liu Xiudong left, Quanqiu waited by the pool for a long time.

Arc pond

Arc pool: Also called Wawengtan pool, because it resembles the relative name of two tiles, it is said to be the daily necessities of Quanqiu waiting for Liu Xiu here.

Dragon bath pool

Longyutan: According to legend, the bathing place of Emperor Guangwu Liu Xiu. Walking here, the stream is rippling, the trees are thick, the cliffs on both sides are colorful, and a feldspar in the middle looks like a giant dragon, lying down in the stream from top to bottom, and the mouth of the dragon is immersed in the pool.

Wolong Creek

Wolong Creek Yizhiya: It is said that in the late Western Han Dynasty, when Liu Xiu appeared in the palace, he had a secret imperial decree to the effect of "closing the pool in large quantities, presenting four auspicious dragons, honing hardships and succeeding in great success", which he could not understand for a long time. When I arrived here, I learned that Dasong Lake was the place where Dasong became immortal. Then he realized that he would be able to dominate the world in the future. He was very happy. When he saw that the stream was clear and thirsty, he bent over to drink water. Unexpectedly, the decree fell into the pool and busily ordered people to pull it out and put it on the rocky cliff for drying. Who knows that after drying, there was no writing, and the dragon pattern on the back of the decree was immersed in the rocky cliff. At this time, a tour of the Dragon passed by, Liu Xiu ordered it to fly into the stream to protect the imperial edict. Up to now, the rocky cliffs are colorful, like dragon patterns. Hence, later generations call it "Wolong Creek" and "Yizhiya Cliff".

Scissors pool

Scissor pool: Earlier, this pool was very similar to the shape of scissors, so it was called scissors pool. There is also a pattern of scissors under the stone wall on the right side of the pool.

Boiling pool

Boiling pool: also known as pot rolling pool, where the water is turbulent and the pool is several meters deep. Wang Mang chased Liu Xiu in the late Western Han Dynasty. Liu Xiu fled to this place. People were tired and horses were tired. Liu Xiu saw that the valley of Liu Xiu was very steep. Liu Xiu ordered the soldiers to collect firewood, light fire and cook. A large pot of boiling water just boiled, I heard the sentry report, the pursuers were approaching, the soldiers panicked into a group, people hoarse, kicked over a large pot of boiling water, then formed a pool, water waves like boiling water, there is a deep depression in the pool below the waterfall, such as burning a stove. So the local people call it the pot rolling pool.

Liu Xiu Lake

Liu Xiuhu: This artificial lake has a total area of nearly 30,000 square meters and a depth of 8 meters. Please pay attention to safety. In the near future, the upstream of the lake will also build a curved bridge at the center of the lake and plant lotus flowers. Our scenic spots need to be further developed. When the sun sets and the waves ripple in the west, we will associate Fan Zhongyan's poem "Jin-li swimming, Wan Zhi Tinglan". Boating on the lake is not interesting.
