JerryI don't know why they call it yellow, I say it's brown. It's one of the most beautiful waterfalls I've seen in the province of Shanxi.

渭南松赞干布The pagoda is located in the southern part of Yan'an City, only 6km away from the center of the city, and the altitude is 1, 135m. The pagoda on the mountain is built in the Tang Dynasty, and the height is 44m. Baota Mountain Scenic Area is now a national 5A level scenic area, which integrates natural and humanistic landscapes. At the same time, the Baota Mountain is the symbol of Yan'an, the historic city, Yan'an is the revolutionary holy place that the revolutionary masses yearn for at that time, the revolutionary victory is the hope of the place, the Chinese revolution victory is from Yan'an to the whole China, so the Baota Mountain has its important historical significance. Everyone who visited Yanan came to the Pagoda Mountain with high respect, revisited the arduous experience of the Chinese revolution and remembered the great sacrifice of the revolutionary martyrs.

M27***25Very good scenic spot, although several places were closed due to heavy rain, the scenery is pleasant and comfortable. If the weather is good, several attractions can be turned around and play for a whole day. No problem.

D78***88The navigation is correct, but from the direction of Ganquan, about 10 kilometers away from the destination, will navigate to the side path, no matter what, go along Ganzhi Road. Scenic Area tickets 98, traffic car 70, already there is no free ticket, 8.30 before the discount includes 150/person. The scenery is unique, it is really good, it takes 1 and a half hours to make a car, first to Longba Ditch, then to Zhangshu Ditch, now only let the tour to these two Ditch, one Ditch is slow enough for an hour (the situation of fewer people), plus waiting for the car, the whole tour is 4 hours. The comment said that the scenery of the birch ditch is the best, maybe because of the time, visit the Longba ditch from 1 to 2 o'clock, and the birch ditch at 2:30, I personally think that the former is better than the latter.
