Lijiang River

executive summary by darmansjah
Lijiang River originates from Cat mountain in Xing an County in the north of Guilin. It flows 437 kilometers down Guilin, Yangshou, Pingle and Wuzhou into the west River. Between Guilin and Yangshuo, Lijiang River travels 83 kilometers exactly like a jade ribbon winding among thousands of grotesque peaks. Along the river banks are the spectacular landscape and elegant hills, the towering peaks, the variegated cliffs and odd-shaped crags reflected in the mirror of its crystal-clear water and th wonderful deep pools, running springs and flying waterfalls everywhere. The reflections of the hills in clear and greenish water are like bright and beautiful pictures. “One hundred miles Lijiang River, one hundred miles art gallery,” a lot of excellent poems and literary works in modern or ancient appreciate her beauty. Han Yu, a great poet in Tang Dynasty, had written a popular poem to praise the beautiful scenery of Lijiang River.
