I've always wanted to see Hukou Falls. This time I finally got a chance. We are driving by ourselves. It's more convenient. I heard that chartered cars are quite expensive. It's better to rent a car to drive by ourselves. We went to this time just in the rainy season, so spectacular, and the sunshine was abundant that day, when the sunshine met the splashing vapor, we also saw the rainbow. Before the formation of the waterfall, it was only a river beach, but it converged to the position of the pot mouth and fell down, forming a magnificent and spectacular pot mouth waterfall. From then on, the Yellow River roared and rushed to the distance.
If only 100 yuan ticket is used to evaluate the performance-price ratio, many people will click on 2 stars, but if you comment on the historical bearing capacity of the Yellow River Falls, the performance-price ratio will be full. I clicked the full score because the Yellow River Falls filled my heart for decades to see the wish. Excuse me, where did you first come into contact with the Yellow River Waterfall? That's what the tour guide asked. There are different answers for different age groups. Some are choruses organized in the school days, including a "Yellow River Chorus". Some of them read about the Yellow River in textbooks, and there are descriptions of its waterfalls. Some often appear in front of the TV, others describe the Yellow River, the cradle of the nation. Some of them have seen Ke Shouliang driving his car and motorcycle over the Yellow River Falls in front of the TV (the flying motorcycle is kept in the Xiangshan Scenic Area of Ningbo City). For me, the most impressive contact is the Yellow River Chorus rehearsal which describes the textbook and the student era of the Yellow River. A few decades later, I finally saw it. The Yellow River water, why so yellow, she carries too much. She bears too much suffering of the Chinese nation and witnesses the indomitable spirit of our great nation. She carries layers of loess, never give up, never leave, roaring, shouting, like the wheel of history rolling forward. Forward. Still moving forward. Long live the motherland.
Spectacular! Shock! This is the overall feeling of Hukou Waterfall. As descendants of the Yellow Emperor, we must see our mother river. When visiting Longdong, there is a small scenic spot at one's own expense. It's still necessary to see it. Longdong can look down at the spectacular scenes of Hukou Waterfall more closely. Lenovo Yellow River Chorus, the wind is roaring! The horse is barking! The Yellow River is roaring!
Hukou Waterfall, National Scenic Spot, National AAAA Tourist Spot, National Geological Park. Hukou Town, Jixian County, Linfen City, Shanxi Province in the East and Hukou Town, Yichuan County, Yanan City, Shaanxi Province in the West are the two provinces'common tourist attractions. It is 387 kilometers north from Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, and 350 kilometers south from Xi'an, Shaanxi Province. Hukou Waterfall is the second largest waterfall in China and the largest yellow waterfall in the world. Hukou Waterfall has a great momentum in the summer with a large amount of water, but in winter, the whole water surface is frozen, forming a rare giant ice waterfall. Around Dec. 6, 2014, due to the continuous cooling weather, the Hukou Waterfall of the Yellow River has a flowing ice and hanging landscape. On July 30, 2015, the Hukou Waterfall of the Yellow River was affected by heavy rainfall in the Yunyan River Basin in the upper reaches of Hukou Waterfall in Shaanxi Province. The Hukou Waterfall of the Yellow River presented a peculiar landscape of turbid waves in the West and white waves in the east.
Hukou Waterfall is one of the three major waterfalls in China. When the Yellow River flows through the Shanxi-Shaanxi Grand Canyon, it forms a natural waterfall. Hukou Waterfall, as its name implies, suddenly narrows the Yellow River, where the upstream surging water pours down like a teapot pouring down tea. Here the Yellow River surges, the cloudy waves, the river roars angrily, as if ten thousand horses galloping, terrible momentum, very spectacular! Although the ticket is 91 yuan, it is worth it.
Hukou Waterfall is a natural waterfall formed when the middle reaches of the Yellow River flows through the Shanxi-Shaanxi Grand Canyon. It is bordered by Yichuan County in Shaanxi Province in the West and Jixian County in Shanxi Province in the east, about 25 kilometers southwest of Jixian City in Shanxi Province. The waterfall is 30 meters wide and 50 meters deep, with a maximum waterfall surface of 30,000 square meters. The Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou Province is the same as the Detian Waterfall in the border between China and Vietnam. When the torrential water of the Yellow River flowed through the vicinity of Longwangshan Mountain in Jixian County, it shrank from 300 meters to 50 meters. The torrential water flowed straight down and plunged into deep troughs, such as pots filled with water, so it was called "pot mouth". The stormy waves roll, the stormy waves beat the shore, the clouds empty, its magnificent momentum, unparalleled. Landscapes related to waterfalls include "kilometer dragon trough", "smoking in the water", "Changhong horizontal wave", "boating in dry land" and so on. The scenery of Hukou varies from season to season, and the river is frozen in the severe winter. In spring, the ice storm roars like thunder piercing the ears. In midsummer, the floods fill the banks, making them spectacular. In autumn, the rainbow spreads all over the sky.
You can't see the water of the Yellow River coming up from the sky, and running to the sea will not return. Hukou Waterfall is very spectacular and shocking. It deserves to be the first scene of the Yellow River. With a series of peculiar scenery of the waterfall, Hukou Waterfall has five major wonders: smoking at the bottom of the water, neon water-playing, flying mountains and seas, thunder in dry days, ice-frozen hanging upside down. Hukou Waterfall is divided into two scenic spots, Shanxi and Shaanxi. They are separated by a river and have different characteristics. Shanxi scenic spots are located outside the turning of the Yellow River, and the visual effect will be better. In addition, there is a single fee "Longdong" scenic spot. Tourists can go down to look at Hukou Waterfall and have a close contact with the waterfall. The perspective and experience will be different. On the other hand, there is a natural viewing platform in Shaanxi. Visually, the waterfall will be more complete, the tourist station will be higher, the waterfall will be more positive, and the feeling of being in the situation will be more profound. Moreover, the management of the scenic spots on this side is more formal. Tourists can drive directly to the waterfall without taking a ferry. I'm on this side of Shanxi. In addition, Hukou Waterfall splashes a lot of water, 20 meters away from the barrier will be splashed with mud by the river, really jump into the Yellow River is not washable. Tourists carrying cameras must be prepared for sand prevention.
Because the scenic spots in Shanxi and Shaanxi are separated to sell tickets, they are all 100 yuan, so before departure, we repeatedly compared Shanxi to Shaanxi. Seeing the strategy that Shanxi can go down to the "Longdong" below the waterfall and look up at the waterfall, we decided to go to Shanxi scenic spots. After that, we found that we thought a lot - "Since September 2018, the Yellow River has risen and the scenic spots in Shanxi have been closed for many days. At the end of September, when I went to see the sparse people at the entrance, I also wanted to go to the wrong peak for a good trip. There were few people. I found a place to buy tickets. The staff said that it was free. I was still stunned for a while. Looking at the electronic screen, it turned out that the Yellow River Rising Water Scenic Area was closed, but providing a free ferry to pull people to the river bank far away. Come and have a look. When we reached the shore of Shanxi, we could see that the Yellow River was so ferocious that we couldn't see the waterfall. The water flooded all the bare stone beaches. The bridges were washed repeatedly by the huge waves, so we could not get down. So, take a circle, take the Qilangwo Yellow River Bridge (G309 National Highway across the Yellow River, currently only by car) to the Shaanxi side, but also to take a ferry from the parking lot to the scenic spot, the water is sure to be strong, Hukou Waterfall is much larger than usual, but the height difference is smaller, the voice is still rumbling, very shocking. Interestingly, although the scenic area of Shanxi is closed, we bumped into the first Dahe Civilization Tourism Forum. It seems that there are big leaders and foreign representatives to carry out the unveiling and tree planting activities. We were able to stand on the platform and enjoy a compact and interesting pendulum activity.
Smoke clouded the mouth of the pot, whirling torrents like mountains. Roaring and roaring high waves, just like the Yellow Dragon next nine days. Seeing clouds in the sky is like dragon's momentum. When the mouth of the pot is big, it has great momentum. It is worth seeing. Now it feels shocked. Without compulsory and additional shopping expenses, the lens with the camera should be carefully protected, and the water mist and mud lens will soon be muddy.
After several hours of long journey, at 5 p.m., we finally arrived at our destination, Hukou Falls. We can use two words to describe our mood - "shock. Looking at the surging Yellow River, my mood is not at all calm. The current was so fast that I finally understood why the tour guide repeatedly reminded everyone to pay attention to safety in the car. It is said that "smoking at the bottom of the pot" is rarely seen. We are lucky to see it because of the flooding before. It's really spectacular.
