Baitashan Park is located on the north bank of the Yellow River near Lanzhou city center and is an important attraction in Lanzhou. Baita Mountain is famous for its ancient white pagoda on the top of the mountain. There are also many palace-style buildings in the mountains. Many trees are planted around the building. It is very good for mountaineering and photography. What's more, you can see the spectacular panoramic view of Lanzhou City when you board the Baita Mountain. The view is very wide.

Baita Mountain is located in Lanzhou City, adjacent to the famous Zhongshan Bridge. The front of the mountain is the mother river, the Yellow River. The altitude here is said to be around 1,700, but climbing from the bottom of the city to the top of the mountain is not as hard as I expected. I estimate that this number counts the city's original elevation. According to the practice of the day, if a young man climbs, he can climb from the bottom of the mountain to the top of the mountain in less than half an hour. Although the slope is a bit steep, it is not too hard overall. If you are driving, you can drive from the trail of the mountain to the mountainside platform. Then walk 5 minutes to the White Pagoda!
From the value of play, the elements that Baitashan can play are not too many. Baitashan Park became a landmark in Lanzhou, and foreign tourists rushed to punch cards. This also shows that this place has its own uniqueness. Then I made a summary, on the Baita Mountain, you can at least play like this!
1: Enjoy the scenery. This is the primary purpose of climbing Baita Mountain. In the mountains, you can overlook the entire Lanzhou city. At the foot of the river is the rapid flow of the Yellow River, and the small Zhongshan Bridge. Lanzhou is an important city in the northwest, the capital of Gansu, and its beauty may be rough. But when you climb the Baita Mountain, if you encounter the sunset, Lanzhou at this time also has its own soft side. So if you want to see the scenery of Lanzhou, or shoot a big city movie, you can't miss it in Baitashan!
2: Appreciation. White Pagoda on Baita Mountain, White Tower in Baita Temple. Yes, it is because of this white tower that the name of Baita Mountain and Baita Temple. The history of this white pagoda can be traced back to the Yuan Dynasty. Around 1228 AD, in order to commemorate the death of a Mongolian lama who went to Mongolia to meet Genghis Khan. The most impressive part of the tower is the regular window of the tower that houses the buddha statues. It feels both mysterious and sacred. The Baita Tower is quite normal in style. It is a traditional Chinese ancient tower type. Although it is not amazing, it is at least very classic!
3: Shoot. To Baita Mountain, there are not many tourists who will take the camera and shoot some beautiful materials. Whether it is the White Tower or the whole picture of Lanzhou City, it is the material that everyone is happy to create. I also share some of my shooting experience here. 1) You can fly a drone in Baita Mountain, but you must pay attention to safety. After all, it is in the city, and interference is everywhere. If you can't come back if you fly far, you can only mourn for you. 2) The time to photograph the city is about 8 o'clock. Because the sunset in the northwest is relatively late, you can check the sunset time of the day in advance and arrange the seats about half an hour earlier. And Lanzhou is more likely to have a sunset glow. If you have a sunset, your photos will be much more exciting. 3) Take a closer look at the white tower body. Here I suggest using a drone to fly close to the details of the Buddha image. Because my flying skills are not good, I don't dare to be too close. If you have good technology, or if you are currently introducing a zoomable model, you can make the Buddha statue bigger and clearer. These Buddha statues are full of vicissitudes of life, a testimony to history and extraordinary significance!
Lanzhou in the night is full of lights. Find a place to look up, beautiful. Baitashan Park is located on the north bank of the Yellow River near the center of Lanzhou. The entrance is connected to the Zhongshan Bridge and is an important attraction in Lanzhou.
The city of Lanzhou is distributed along the Yellow River, narrow in the east-west direction and narrow in the south and north poles. The Yellow River passes through Lanzhou City and is the most distinctive landscape belt along the banks of the Yellow River. The Zhongshan Bridge on the Yellow River is a century-old iron bridge that has become a famous symbol of Lanzhou. The
Zhongshan Bridge was built in 1907 and was called the "First Bridge of the Yellow River in the World". It was originally called "Lanzhou Yellow River Iron Bridge". It was renamed Zhongshan Bridge because of the commemoration of Mr. Sun Yat-sen.
The north bank of the Yellow River is Baitashan Park. This hill is not high, but it is an excellent view point. The mountain is named after a white tower. After passing the Zhongshan Bridge, it is the gate of the park and is free to open. The
White Tower has an open view overlooking Lanzhou City and the sunset. It is a favorite spot for locals. The mountains are densely green and the buildings are simple, which is very suitable for leisure and fitness. The white tower of the
top of the mountain was built in the Yuan Dynasty to commemorate the famous Tibetan lama who died in Genghis Khan in Mongolia. At the end of the Yuan Dynasty, the White Tower collapsed. The existing Baita was rebuilt by Liu Yongcheng, an internal supervisor of Ganjing, who was guarding Gansu during the Ming Dynasty.
From the mountains overlooking the Yellow River and the city center of Lanzhou, there are many high-rise buildings. This is one of the largest cities in the northwestern region. People come and go on the Zhongshan Bridge, the night falls, and the lights gradually light up.
