Wuwei city is not big, with typical northern city characteristics, the building north-south direction, the city is short of water, Tianma Lake is built on the dry river ladder-like multi-grade wetland lake. It is precious! Wuwei has a long history, as early as 4, 5000 years ago, there were Guo, Guo, Yue, Wu Sun and other northern ethnic groups and live together. Since the emperor of Han Wu dispatched Guo Qi General Huo to the disease expedition to Hexi, defeat Hunnu, show the great Han Empire "martial arts and military power" named Wuwei, has been nearly 2200 years of history.

The snow and glaciers of the Qilian Mountains pass through the vast desert and are divided into countless tributaries. One of the tributaries comes to Wuwei City and converges into a river. It starts from the Lianhuo Expressway Bridge in the south to the Yongjun Bridge in the north. The river is 7 kilometers long. This river is called "Tianma" lake". The water of Tianma Lake is clear and quiet. When people are walking on the trail by the lake, they will see peace in their hearts when they look at the lake. The magnificence of the golden horse and iron horse horn in ancient times seems to be very far away. Only when you go outside the city, you can vaguely find the appearance of ancient times in the boundless desert. Once, in the throat area of this Hexi Corridor, how many heroic past events have happened, and now they are still circulated for a long time in this deep land.
