During the Qing Dynasty the Nen River provided an important communication route between southern Manchuria and the cities of Qiqihar and Mergen, both of which served at various points as capitals of the Qing Heilongjiang. The Black river is an open city and a famous tourism city. 

Then we go to Aihui town, located on the right (south-western) bank of the Amur River, about 30 km downstream (south) of the Heihe central urban area. The district’s Aihui Town was formerly known as Aigun (Aihun), and for more than two centuries since its founding in the 1680s was one of the most important towns of Northern Manchuria. In 1913 Aigun became the county seat of the newly-created Aigun County, which was in December 1956 renamed Aihui County. On November 15, 1980, Heihe City was created, and on June 6, 1983, Aihui County was abolished, being merged into the Heihe City. To further confuse the situation, in 1993 the former Heihe City (a county-level administrative unit) was reorganized into Aihui District (also a county-level unit), while the former Heihe Prefecture became Heihe Prefecture-level City (which consists of Aihui District and a number of counties).

Get up early this morning ,whole day shoot in Geopark.

Wudalianchi Geopark :which is located in Heilongjiang Province. Within the Wudalianchi Scenic Area stand 14 old and new volcanoes, covering a life span of more than two million years. A famous circum-Pacific volcano group, the area boasts the world’s best preserved and most concentrated, complete, and typical volcanic landforms, hence its reputation of a “Natural Volcanic Museum” and an “Open Textbook on Volcanoes.”

As a result of the eruptions of two young volcanoes: Mt. Heilong and Mt. Huoshao from 1719 to 1721, huge amounts of lava blocked the original watercourses of the Bai River, a branch of the Nemor River, giving rise to five connected lakes, with one wave reflecting the other, one lake linking the other. People call them Wudalianchi, which literally means “Five Large Connected Lakes.” Named from one to five, the five lakes, with different colors, shapes, and sizes, look like five pure and magnificent pearls inlaid among the 14 lofty volcanoes are really spectacular sights.

The more interesting thing in the Wudalianchi is that one can drink to his heart’s content the mineral water, which is called generally “mineral water of heavy carbonate”. It contains more than ten elements beneficial to health, which have certain curative effect for stomach trouble, iron deficiency anemia, chronic cholecystitis, neurasthenia, skin disease, and high blood pressure, focuses etc. Among the five lakes, the first one is the smallest and the only one with water lilies growing, which is a unique sight in summer.

The second lake, with well-known natural breed aquatics, is the deepest, with a depth of over 9 meters. The third one is the largest, covering an area of 8.4 square kilometers. From a distance it looks like any other famous lake in the region south of the Yangtze River. Reverted water reflections of the blue sky, white clouds, and volcanoes look much like a nice landscape painting.In the early morning at sunrise, a fine gauze-like hydrosphere will float over the lake. Rowing a boat in the lake at this time can make people feel like they are in a fairyland.

The fourth lake is famous for its reeds, lotuses, and tranquil environment, with various kinds of fishes in it. Interested tourists can fish from a boat. Covering an area of 15 square kilometers, the fifth lake is the five lakes’ origin. However, there is neither a river  nor a stream or spring, which is a strange phenomenon.

The place listed as one of China’s first 44 key scenic spots, the five lakes are also one of the nation-level natural reserves as well as one of the country’s national geology parks. In addition, it is the only one of China’s 40 best tourist destinations in Northeast China.
