Jiayuguan is famous for its Jiayuguan City, but there are two little-known beautiful scenery about 20 kilometers outside Jiayuguan City, Black Mountain Lake and the Grand Canyon of the Lai River.
I used to think that Crescent Moon Spring is the most beautiful oasis in the desert, until I met the Black Mountain Lake in Jiayuguan, where the Danxia landform and the desert oasis coexist, and the lake water shows a high saturation dark green under the sunlight. The expansive lake is exquisite and refreshing.
This section of the canyon we have visited has not yet been developed. It took about half an hour to drive from Heishan Lake. After going down the highway, it went to the Gobi. The car was up and down by the stones on the Gobi, and suddenly stopped on the edge of a cliff. For the first time, I felt the ground cracked in front of my eyes. The Grand Canyon is a natural surface fracture, such as a knife and axe. The inner walls on both sides of the Grand Canyon are steep and steep, and their terrain is dangerous. In the canyon, the snow melts of the Qilian Mountains flows all the year round. The layers of the mountains are painted by the sunset, and the cliffs of the canyon are also hooked on the Phnom Penh.
By car, you can't imagine how many unknown people are hidden in this city called Gobi Pearl. In this place where the desert is full of desert Gobi, the most ugly one is the rushing river, but the magic is that there is a river in the northwest of Jiayuguan that has not been exhausted for thousands of years. Many of the wonders in nature that seem to be unable to coexist are actually gathered in this vast desert. The scenery of the Grand Canyon in the section of the ice ditch is not only spectacular, but the waterscape seen in different seasons is also very different. If it comes to the ice ditch in the winter, you can see it is different from the spring, autumn and summer. The scenery, the cold air from the Qilian Mountains will cause the river to begin to freeze, and there will be a few trickles on the glaciers slowly passing through the Grand Canyon. Standing at the center of the cable bridge, looking at the whole view of the Grand Canyon of the Lai River, looking around, the nearby Gobi Desert surrounds the entire canyon, showing a yellow-orange-orange piece under the setting sun, leaving the original desolate and lonely. The desert of the Gobi became splendid in a moment, and the texture of the red rock wall between the canyons danced along with the light and shadow of the sun. The weeds growing in the desert of Gobi also became a unique embellishment due to the setting sun. Adding a touch of color to the yellow Gobi, and the Qilian Mountains behind it are also true, as if the snow-capped mountains are not far away, but when they really touched it, they found that they were actually beyond reach. This is a paradise for photographers, and its a wonderful visual experience.
The river is the only river in Jiayuguan that people can see with the naked eye. It originates from the Qilian Mountains and has been flowing into the Heihe River. It is about 260 kilometers long. The main supply of river water comes from glacier ice and snow and groundwater. "Traising" is the transliteration of the ancient Huns, meaning "a lot of hares." There are two kinds of legends about the name. The first one is that people think that this river is coming quickly, like a rabbit. . The second is that in ancient times, the locals saw hordes of rabbits on the banks of the river. People first saw the rabbits and then saw the river. In fact, no matter from which legend, the importance of this river to the local people can be seen. Each small section of the
Shanghe River Grand Canyon has the same effect, but on the spectacular, the section of the Grand Canyon cable bridge, the ice ditch, will be even better. The ice ditch is the closest to the Qilian Mountains and belongs to the Heihe River system. The tributary, so this section almost brings together the snow and ice melt of half of the mountains. From the top down, the river is hidden from the bottom of the valley. The river is thick and narrow from the original spaciousness, and the water flow begins to become turbulent. Urgent, but this section of the river is also very clear and clean, as if you can look at the bottom of the river at a glance, its color is mainly blue-blue, like a god-given pure transparent opal, but also a desolate life The Grand Canyon adds a vibrant color. Such a spectacle is absolutely comparable to the famous "Colorado Grand Canyon."
Aerial photography Jiayuguan to discuss the Laihe Grand Canyon, the river is the gift of the Qilian Mountain, but the Grand Canyon is beautiful to the heavens. The original flat and open Gobi is washed away all the year round because of the patronage of the river, in the continuous sinking and cutting effect. Next, the Gobi became the riverbed of the river, either high or low, or narrow or wide, and eventually formed a vast canyon, and the river was like a dragon on a Gobi. Go east. This side of the river brings people not only shock and awe, but it is also the prelude to the Jin Ge Iron Horse Symphony. Without it, this ridiculous Gobi will be lifeless; without it, this piece of yellow sand will only be yellow sand; without it, the most basic living conditions of countless frontier soldiers will not be guaranteed. There is also a suspension bridge in the Grand Canyon of the Lai River. Walking on the swaying suspension bridge, looking down from the riverbed, the steep cliffs on both sides are like a knife and axe, and the flowing river is like a river. For example, green silk is generally paraded in the sand and sand, and it is not awkward. The sound of the wind blew through the ear, the water flowing under the feet, and the small stones overlooking the bottom of the water, but the thrills and excitement can not help but remind people that if the bridge was there, the army would exist. How to make a great bridge over the suspension bridge!
