Open the Taihang Mountain, the Weihe River passes through the mountains, and the people of Lin County are more ambiguous, vowing to reorganize the mountains and rivers! An impassioned song contains 100,000 people in the county, ten years of youth, no regrets, hardworking and brave Lin County people Ten hard battles in the spring and autumn, only relying on a hammer, a shovel, two hands, on the cliffs of Taihang Mountain, the 1,500-kilometer-long red flag canal was completed, ending the ten years of nine droughts and the history of water and oil. Walking on the green mountain trails, watching the water flowing through the red flag, people who can rely on their hands to get out of this curved canal can not help but awe.
#### The impression of Hongqi Canal begins with the text "Red Flag Canal" on the elementary school textbook. It was only until this evening that I watched a large-scale performance, "Getting Close to the Red Flag Canal," and I learned more about this "Great Wall of China".

First of all, let's take a look at the geographical location of Linzhou (Gulin County). It is at the foot of Taihang Mountain and at the junction with Hebei and Shanxi. It has always been a place of drought and water shortage in history. It has been recorded in history books. Drought, so here, water is more important than anything. People need to go to dozens of miles to pick up water for their needs. Life is very difficult.
This is the greatest project of the 20th century. In the past ten years, 1,250 hills have been flattened, more than 200 tunnels have been drilled, and the earth and stone that has been excavated has reached 22.25 million cubic meters. The length of the main channel of the Red Flag Canal has reached more than 1,000. Kilometers, plus the addition of various types of irrigation canals, the total length can reach more than 4,000 kilometers.
Today, it has become a national 5A-level scenic spot and a base for students to study and practice. Visitors can approach the Red Flag Canal to listen to the inspirational stories of the year and take a look at the canal hanging on the mountainside. Cruise the boat and walk through the colorful tunnels to experience a journey through time and space.
In the scenic area, there is a short melodrama that restored the process of building the canal that year. From the announcement of introducing the forest to hundreds of thousands of people marching into the Taihang Mountains, they are on the cliffs. With the most primitive ironware, day after day, year after year, I finally built the red flag channel today.
The Red Flag Canal is an irrigation canal built by locals during the 1960s. It runs around the side of a cliff in the Taihang Mountains, which are known for their spectacular scenery. The visitor site is also home to a museum, which informs visitors about the canal's history.
