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!
