Luoyang Tour of The Three Gorges of Yellow River

 
      The Three Gorges are the essence of this scenic area on the Yellow River. Situated on the upper reaches of Xiaolangdi Multipurpose Dam, the gorges cover 40 square kilometers (about 15 square miles). Each gorge has its own characteristics. Bali Gorge forms the narrowest part of these reaches of the river and the water gushes between the sheer cliffs on either side. Gushan Gorge is extraordinary as if it were cut out by some supernatural beings while the Dragon and Phoenix Gorge winds snake-like between steep sides. All in all the Three Georges of the Yellow River present uniquely beautiful water and mountain scenery in northern region of China.

Bali Gorge:

     Bali Gorge is also nicknamed 'Bali By-street'. It is the last section of the Yellow River gorges and it is the narrowest. Cliffs stand erect and tall on either side as though they have been cut through by a giant sword. The narrow and arduous valleys continue upwards appearing to almost join the sky. Seen from a distance, these beautiful valleys connect with each other to form a natural door, thus they have been called 'The Door of the Yellow River'. The current here is wild and strong and waves continually dash against the shore .The whole gorge is splendid.

Gushan Gorge:

     Gushan Gorge goes from south to north. Here mountains and water become an inseparable whole; pavilions and small wooden houses stand beside the water and adorn the mountain sides. When visiting this place, you will be touched by the grand landscape and surrounded by a strong sense of poetry. In this gorge, natural beauties and sceneries of humanities are interwoven, enhancing the beauty of each other. There are countless stories and legends about the Gushan Gorge, something that adds to its appeal as a spot well worth visiting when exploring the historic Yellow River.

Dragon and Phoenix Gorge:

     The Dragon and Phoenix Gorge twists and turns through precipitous cliffs. The mountain rocks are rugged; trees stand tall and serene; the mist and clouds are dense and the constant stream of water is loquacious. Here a blue pond is like a bright and quiet moon while the waterfall above is a white curtain draped on the mountainside. The reason for the name of the gorge is that it and the Phoenix Slope supplement each other, forming a natural picture which indicates propitiousness. For that reason scenic spots in this gorge have been endowed with many romantic names, like Lover's Island, Lovesickness Waterfall, Dragon and Phoenix Pond, and so on.
