If I don’t come to ningxia, I really think that northwest China is full of loess, desertification environment, and sparse precipitation climate drought. It is like not to go to gansu for a walk, still do not know “long on the jiangnan” is how to return a responsibility. Of course, ningxia, which is situated in the south of the Yangtze river, cannot be imagined as a paradise on earth without visiting haba lake.
Northwest, not only numerous cultural relics and historical sites, natural scenery is also absolutely win. It is a good place to look for the ancient times in China, but also has inestimable natural resources. Ningxia, the first place I visited in China, is also the most strange place in northwest China.
Haba lake, located in yanchi county, wuzhong city, is one of the most miraculous ecological scenic spots in this desert area. It is an important component of huamasi national forest park. It is known as the “biological gene bank” in the western desert and the “licorice town” at home and abroad.
Entering the haba lake scenic area, you can hardly imagine that a few decades ago, the land under your feet was still a desert area, there were no tall trees around, the only visible is the desert steppe plants, it is far away from the “jiangnan” reputation, the endless desert area is a dead.
Today, however, it is not only a national nature reserve, but also a camping paradise for self-driving tourists. The main activities are in huamasi national forest park, and haba lake scenic spot is one of them.
Haba lake is located at the source of the largest quicksand belt in the middle of the salt pond. The continuous desert covering an area of 50 square kilometers has been managed by two generations of forestry workers, and is now an oasis and a beautiful forest landscape. This has attracted many road trip lovers, after all, the northwest scenery is too suitable for road trip.
The scenic spot not only has the five-star standard self-driving camp, rv camp, but also has the camping base and so on. Many mountain bikers who love to ride outdoors also come here to enjoy the endless freedom of the desert oasis. So how do you play it? Is it natural, wild, free?
Haba lake fruit wood roasted whole sheep
Yanchi, as the “hometown of tan sheep in China”, must not miss the delicious tan sheep here. Haba lake fruit wood roasted whole sheep is the characteristic flavor of the scenic spot, its meat aroma is hard to match the mutton of other places. There is no odor, and the meat is tender, especially the single roast leg of lamb.
Whether you know people or strangers, if you like to be lively, you must not miss the bonfire party under the stars, we eat mutton together, drink beer, singing and dancing around the fire of passion, life without regret.
[starry night camping]
If you have time, camping under the stars is highly recommended. Above the desert oasis, the pure stars make eyes dance. The city no longer see the stars sea, now dazzling heart. There are wooden villas, wild luxury tents and capsule rooms in the scenic area. At night, you can also listen to the music of nature.
For photography lovers, this is the perfect place to take pictures of the starry sky, the vast and peaceful night sky, the stars, the Milky Way, and the dream. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance due to a tight schedule.
【 boulevard 】
For the boulevard, we are not unfamiliar, and even not rare. But the environment was different, and so was the landscape. “Desert smoke straight” — is the first response of people to the northwest, smooth plateau, dunes undulating, rolling yellow sand formed a vast sea of sand. But here, driving here, the boulevard is so amazing.
In the evening, the breeze is breezy, you can also walk along the avenue to enjoy the scenery, comfortable and quiet. The scenery on both sides of the road is infinite. There are meadows, woods, wooden houses, rivers and large sunflower fields.
Haba lake is the core of the scenic spot. Haba lake in the afterglow of sunset is beautiful. Although the lake is not large, it seems to be a fall in the desert of a sapphire, shining. Along the trestle to the lake, the surrounding scenery is amazing, can not tell whether they are in the south or in the north.
In its south, there is a small stone culture site, interested in human history friends may wish to see. As a domestic search for the good place to ask today, the northwest of the cultural relics immeasurable, do not know the past is the western thieves dug how many of our Chinese treasures.
But in the face of such haba lake, so ningxia, the northwest of the vast forest sea, lush and amazing. Hundreds of acres of hyacinth hyacinth meadow, flexible and straight, the mind is full of desert desolation full of endless vitality.
And in the southeast direction of the scenic spot, you can also see the sunrise of the sand sea, afternoon soak up the sunshine of the sand liao, it can be said that the forest sea and sand sea coexist, forming an unimaginable natural landscape.
In the autumn, the scenic spot small poplar forest is intoxicating. There is a “even to haba lake, no need to ejin”. And the day is cool good autumn, autumn is also a good time for road trip, we might as well have a chance to see the autumn haba lake.
