D78***88The navigation is correct, but from the direction of Ganquan, about 10 kilometers away from the destination, will navigate to the side path, no matter what, go along Ganzhi Road. Scenic Area tickets 98, traffic car 70, already there is no free ticket, 8.30 before the discount includes 150/person. The scenery is unique, it is really good, it takes 1 and a half hours to make a car, first to Longba Ditch, then to Zhangshu Ditch, now only let the tour to these two Ditch, one Ditch is slow enough for an hour (the situation of fewer people), plus waiting for the car, the whole tour is 4 hours. The comment said that the scenery of the birch ditch is the best, maybe because of the time, visit the Longba ditch from 1 to 2 o'clock, and the birch ditch at 2:30, I personally think that the former is better than the latter.

Hukou Waterfall: a thousand miles of Yellow River poured from a teapot # Few in the world have seen the golden waterfall # Hukou Waterfall, located in Yan'an City, Shaanxi Province. It is a national scenic spot with 4A rating. The upstream width area of the Yellow River is 300 meters, but within a distance of less than 500 meters of the waterfall, it is compressed to a width of 20-30 meters. The river pours 1000 cubic meters per second from a steep cliff that is more than 20 meters high, hence forming "a thousand miles of Yellow River poured from a teapot." Every summer, owing to changes in the flow of water above the mouth of the teapot, everyone can see the wonderful sight of multiple waterfalls.
