The length of the formidable Yellow River flowing across in Gansu province is the shortest, but on the point of entering Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, the river encounters a small village, where is Longwan Village in the southeast of Jingtai county and 139 kilometers away from Lanzhou city.
As we all know, the torrential currents of the
Yellow River flow towards the east. However, the people of Langwan Village can proudly say: “We have a Yellow River flowing towards the west.”
If you go to the village in winter, you will be amazed to the views here. The
Yellow River beneath the hill turns out to be green with white riverside, forming a sharp contrast. The unmelted white ice looks like a picture frame, recording the astonished beauty. Occasionally on the river, there are some small islands or sandbars, which are like white crystal balls floating on the blue wall-like surface, very charming.
