Old stories say that Huangdi, the legendary ancestor of all Chinese, once offered sacrifices to heaven from Tiantan Peak and finally managed to unite the Middle Kingdom by defeating Chiyou, another legendary figure, with divine support.
Meanwhile, Mount Wangwu has held the top position among the "10 blessed paradises" in the Taoist world since the Tang Dynasty (AD 618- 907).

Many Taoist temples dot the mountain. Yangtai Palace, at the foot of Tiantan Peak, is the most famous. First built in the Tang Dynasty, the temple is just as much a work of art as it is a center for religion.

Its main hall, the pavilion-style Yuhuang Palace, impresses all, with its elegant stretching eaves, which resemble the wings of birds about to take flight. Carved on its stone pillars are lifelike images of people, animals and landscapes.
Mount Wangwu boasts various geological marvels and became a world geological park in 2006.

Volcanic rocks of strange shapes and various sizes in Xiaogoubei Valley bear witness to the region's transformation from ocean to mountain.

The multicolored rocks surrounding the site are known as "five-color rocks".

The tale of goddess Nuwa mending the broken sky with the "five-color rocks" is a Chinese version of the creation myth and is acknowledged as having its roots here. The legend is listed as a national intangible cultural heritage.
The Three Gorges on the Yellow River are about 20 km from Mount Wangwu and can be seen on a good day.

The landscapes along the gorges, with chains of mountains competing in beauty, are a rare blend of water and peaks, especially in North China. Each of the gorges has its own unique facets.

All you need to do is board a cruise ship at the dock and feast your eyes. As the ship barrels down the river, the waterway changes in width, height and color.
The Yellow River also reveals her peaceful side here. Birds sing, and sunbeams play over the mountains. It is like being in a landscape scroll painting.
The 20-km cruise will take you to another scenic splendor - the Xiaolangdi hydro-junction, the largest water-control project on the river.

The 1,667-meter-long rock-filled dam is not only a masterpiece of hydraulic engineering but also a spectacle that shows off the strength of the Yellow River.

It stands as a monument to Chinese people and their efforts to harness the river. Visitors who wish to check at close quarters can take a walk on the dam.


When the water is discharged, tremendous fountains spurt from the valves with a thunderous roar. Breathtaking waterfalls, dozens of meters high, then sweep down like thick clouds and engulf everything below.

Xitang, a small island spotted with village cottages, is located just 4 km downstream from the sluices. The only inhabited island on the 5,464-km-long Yellow River is certainly enchanting.

A walk around the farmhouses half hidden by leafy green trees will calm you down after the water show at Xiaolangdi.
Due to its unique location, the island is home to flocks of water birds, too. Strangely, perhaps, the island has never flooded.

As dusk falls, birds warble and boats return home, giving the place the feeling this is a "Peach Blossom Valley", a haven of perfect peace in Chinese romances.
