The Huangdi Mausoleum, Yellow River Hukou Falls, culture of losses and Revolutionary Holy Land of China enjoy high popularities in the world. Yanan is located in the Loess Plateau of Shaanxi Province, which is the birthplace of Chinese civilization. The mausoleum of Huangdi nestled in the peak of Qiaoshan, was known by descendants as the "human ancestor.”
In addition, Yanan occupies a very important and special position in the modern history of China as the revolutionary sites. There are 140 revolutionary relics, such as: the headquarters of the CPC-Central Military Commission and the Eighth Route Army - wangjiaping; Phoenix Mountain site; and the Pagoda Hill, Yangjialing, Zaoyuan and other places.
The following are details of itinerary and photos:
(Regarding this journey of Yanan, we only went to wangjiaping and Yangjialing because the time was limited. And we viewed Pagoda Hill and Qingliangshan in a distant and watched cultural performance in wangjiaping, including Xin Tian You, dancing, Ansai waist drum and so on. )
This first stop of Hukou Waterfall tour was the first day to the Huangdi Mausoleum, Xuanyuan Temple, Hukou Waterfall, stayed overnight in Hukou. We got up early at 6:00 am the next day to Yanan, and just saw the torrential water of yellow river from the peak.
We had breakfast in a rural inn on the way to Yan’an. Since we were not familiar with this environment and felt curious, we took photo of this scene.
We were so lucky to see the sunset of Yan’an.
The Loess Plateau gave us different impression.
The Jiangnan of Shaanxi—Nanni Bay. The guide told us it’s not the Nanni Bay. This is just a jurisdictional area of Nanni Bay.
We arrived in Yan’an! It’s Qingliangshan, Which was inscribed by Marshal Chen Yi.
We could not see clearly about the Pagoda Hill, is this river called Wei River?
