Yellow River Scenic Area situates in the northwest part of Zhengzhou City. The scenic area is surprisingly beautiful. As seen from a high point in this scenic area, the mighty Yellow River rushes by and demonstrates tremendous force with rolling and falling of the river's torrents. Sometimes in its thousands of miles, the river reaches wide endless plains where currents flow smoothly, and sometimes it meets precipitous mountains where it has to zigzag its way.
Yellow River Scenic Area includes five scenic spots, namely the Five Dragons Peak, the Camel Mountain Range, the Yueshan Temple, the Stone Figures of Yandi and Huangdi, and the Ancient City of Liu Bang and Xiang Yu. Among them, the Five Dragons Peak is the most famous sites in the central area. The Five Dragons Peak has five winding mountain, which looks like five dragons guarding the Yellow River. From here you can see the mighty river, which has nourished Chinese for thousands of years.
Yueshan Temple is 1.5 kilometers (about 0.93 miles) to the east of Five Dragons Peak in Yellow River Scenic Area. There are several featured spots in this famous temple, such as the Purple Golden Pavilion and the Peony Garden. During festivals, a deafening bell reverberates from a distance to catch your attention. The bell is on the top of the Golden Pavilion and its deep heavy sounds mixing with the Yellow River's rumble create enormous reverberations. In the wilderness, the reverberation rises and falls in waves.
