Yan'an
Located in the northern part of Shaanxi Province, Yan'an was the end of the Long March of the Red Army and the base of the Chinese Communist Party from 1935 to 1948. Among all the revolutionary base cities in China, Yan'an is the city with the largest scale, the largest number and the most complete layout of the old revolutionary sites. It is an educational base for patriotism, revolutionary tradition and the Yan'an spirit. There are also Xuanyuan Huangdi Mausoleum, which is the "Number One Ancient Tomb in China", Baota Mountain and other historical monuments. There are an abundance of natural landscapes including Yan'an Yellow River Hukou Waterfall and Wanhua Mountain, the country's largest wild peony colony and the hometown of Mulan.

River
小东西1023The ninety-nine bends of the Yellow River in the world, and the five great bends formed by the rare serpentine landscape in Yanchuan are collectively referred to as the Hequ, and its scientific name is the snake. It is the largest, best and densest group of snakes in China's main rivers. It extends from north to south, in order: Whirlpool Bay, Yanshui Bay, Fusi Bay, Qiankun Bay, and Qingshui Bay. There is a landscape platform, and you can easily see Clear Water Bay and Qiankun Bay. Among them, "Qiankun Bay" is more famous. Many people who come here for a day trip just take a look at this bay. According to legend, Fuxi's ancestors watched the sky in Qiankun Bay and invented the theory of Tai Chi and Bagua Yin and Yang. The Yellow River, the mother river that has flowed for 1.6 million years, forms a mysterious shape of an "S"-shaped turn when it flows through Hehuili Village, Yonghe County, Shanxi Province and Fuyihe Village, Yanchuan County, Shaanxi Province. It resembles a Tai Chi diagram, with a curve arc of more than 320 degrees, and it can be called the first bend of the Yellow River in the world. "Clear Water Bay" is like a huge straw hat on the Yellow River. It is said to be the place where Dayu lived. The entire national park is large in scale, with a total area of 170 square kilometers and a major geological heritage area of 56.2 square kilometers. It usually takes more than 15 minutes to drive from point to point, so it is convenient for self-driving, and there are plenty of parking spaces at various attractions. It is recommended to live there for a day. There are many small attractions. We only played "Huifengzhai", "Clear Water Bay" and "Qiankun Bay" after staying for a day.

Mountain
黄红延Yan'an was the revolutionary base during the Anti-Japanese War. This heroic city is located in the northern part of Shaanxi Province and is worth a visit. Pagoda Mountain is located in the urban area of Yan'an and serves as a base for patriotic education. Tickets are free. During the day, Baota Mountain overlooks Yan'an City and Yanhe, and overlooks Qingliang Mountain. At night, there will be a light show on Pagoda Mountain, accompanied by the music of Yan’an Song, which is super shocking. If you are interested, you can also climb to the top of the mountain. According to legend, Fan Zhong was submerged here in the Northern Song Dynasty.

Historical Architecture
好景致Chairman Mao and other leaders lived here for a long time, especially the Central Auditorium here is the place where the Seventh Congress was held. This thousand-person auditorium did not have a beam or a column. Without lifting equipment at the time, relying solely on manpower was considered an architectural miracle. There is also a vegetable plot grown by Chairman Mao himself, which fully reflects the style of hard work at that time. Chairman Mao met here with American reporter Strong and put forward the famous conclusion that all reactionaries are paper tigers.
