Introduction to First Bend of Yellow Rirver (九曲黄河第一弯)

The first bend of Yellow River is located at Tangke townRuoergai County. It is the intersection of Sichuan, Qinghai, and Gansu Province. After plunging through the Bayankela valley, the yellow river slows down a little and takes a huge turn between Mount Animaze and Mount Xize. The turn is 443 kilometers long. It is the first bend of the yellow river from its origin. 

Drive from Ruoergai County for 61 kilometers to Tangke town. Then take another 9 kilometers to the north, you will arrive at the first bend of yellow river. Climbing on one of the small hills there, you can see the spectacular view of this natural wonder. The turn is from west to north, pivoting the Tangke, flowing through a wonderful landscape of wild flowers, meadows and blue sky.
