In Lijiang, Yunnan, there is first bay of Yangtze River, and it is only through this bay that Yangtze River can become a mother river.
The two mother rivers in China not only have a very high reputation at home, but also have a very strong influence abroad. In particular, in a song created by a contemporary singer, one of our mother rivers is compared to a Chinese dragon. Ha ha, do you know what river this is?
Yes, it's Yangtze River, but all accolades come from bend. What kind of magical existence is there in this bend??
(1) Three parallel rivers
As we all know, Yangtze River finally flows into East China Sea. But what everyone doesn't know is that before this bend, Yangtze River flows side by side with Nujiang River and Mekong River. Three rivers, like a mountain character, flow side by side vertically, very close to each other.
However, unlike fate of other two rivers, Yangtze River suddenly reversed somewhere and made a huge bend to flow towards East China Sea, and other two rivers would be a pity.
The Nu River continued to flow in its original course, passing through Myanmar and Thailand. Every year, Chinese glaciers and snow water continuously flow into Myanmar as a source of high-quality fresh water. The Mekong River is even worse, having benefited many countries in lower reaches of Southeast Asia. It can be said that without existence of Mekong River, these countries may be threatened with extinction.
In China, such precious fresh water reserves are wasted, which makes people very sad, but at same time, fortunately, Yangtze River has made a big bend in this place, so our survival does not depend on it Mother River becomes a tool for survival and development of others.
(2) Big Turn
The place where Yangtze River makes a big bend is in Shigu City, Yunnan. We all know that upper reaches of Yangtze River were not called Yangtze River, but Jinsha River, which is also a separate river with its own name. The reason for its name is because river shimmers like there are golden sands, which makes people feel beautiful.
This is also such a name, but river here is destined not to be too clean, but to contain sediment. Especially at big turn of Shigu city. The main reason is that after snow water drains from mountains, it will pass through northwestern region. The land structure in northwestern region is different from that in southern region, and most of them are soft soil.
It is easy to be swept into Jinsha River under washing of river water. Unlike Yellow River, Jinsha River precipitates silt it carries at this turning point.
Therefore, after turn, Yangtze River will gradually begin to clear up and finally flow into East China Sea. So for this big turning point, we should be grateful.
First of all, we should be grateful for its existence, that we have a mother river like Yangtze River, so that we can grow crops along coast, and use fresh water as a high-quality resource for our survival and development.
Secondly, I would like to thank existence of this large bend that allows sediment to settle, so that water of Yangtze River, which our downstream people come into contact with, will not be too muddy, like in the Yellow River, which will allow us to have a better and more convenient life to use water.
(3) Shigu City
This large bend is located in Xigu City, a city with a very good environmental situation. In recent years, development of tourism resources has also made people pay more attention to quality tourism environment in upper Yangtze River. Especially in area where Three Parallel Rivers flow, there are three large rivers.
It also makes ecological environment here extraordinarily beautiful, with a great variety of biodiversity, and various beautiful landscapes are very attractive to people. Also because of unique phenomenon of Three Parallel Rivers, people come here out of curiosity to observe and experience it for themselves.
Great Bend is such a special existence, but little known in people's minds. But I believe that as Internet spreads faster and faster in future, netizens will eventually find this treasure, just like author who is now writing this article, let more netizens from all over country see this Existence of a great bend, with heartfelt gratitude.
Perhaps many curious netizens will come here to see it with their own eyes. I believe that in near future development of tourism resources here will be better and better, because it not only has a unique geography, but also has an important historical significance.
There are also many beautiful landscapes, urban culture is unique, and farm is original and unique. I believe that people who come here can feel benefits of this place and have more fun here, and I wish you all have a good time here.
After reading this article, everyone should be aware of importance of great turning point in Sigou City, which could have a positive impact. I believe that together we can help them achieve a certain degree of development so that this place, which has been of benefit to us for a long time, can truly enjoy development dividends.
