Golden Whip Stream-金鞭溪-Jinbianxi

Hello, Friends, Welcome to Zhangjiajie for sightseeing. Now the first spot you will visit is Jinbianxi-- Golden Whip Stream.

Jinbianxi is one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. It is about 7.5km long and 30-50m wide. Jinbianxi is like a blue silk ribbon around the matchless beauty, which displays the beauty of "3000 strange peaks and eight hundred fine waters" to the utmost.

Then, what a valley is Jinbianxi after all? Shen Congwen, a famous Chinese writer, praised it to be "Maid of Zhangjiajie". Wu Guanzhon-the then promoter of Zhang jiajie and a famous Chinese painter, praised it as "A world in children stories". Now let's go and unveil the mysteries of Jinbianxi along the footprints of Mr.Shen and Mr.Wu.

Please carefully look at the strange plants on the left side.They are the National First-class Protective Plants--dove trees. The dove tree is a perennial woody flower, which generally blossoms in the end of spring and beginning of summer. The flower is white, but its stigma has slight purplish red, like a dove's head and mouth, and its flower has two long and big bracts, like a pair of wings. The whole shape of the flower is like a flying dove. This is a peculiar kind of trees of China and foreign friends endearingly call it "The Chinese Dove Flower".

Please look at both the sides of the valley before you. What you are seeing is a tall and luxuriant tower-like tree--dawn redwood, also one of the national first-class protective plants. The dawn redwood is a very ancient tree. People once thought it had thoroughly disappeared as a result of the assault by the Quaternary Period Glacier. In 1941, the botanist of our country discovered it in Modaogou of Wanxian. Sichuan Province. In 1982,when Zhangjiajie was developed ,we found large areas of dawn redwoods and other rare plants of over 3,000 species growing here .This is really a huge wealth the great nature has bestowed us.

Please look to the right front. Before us ,the stone pillar towering into the sky is the Jinbianyan--the Golden Whip Rock, well-known far and wide. Jinbianxi is named just because it always runs past Jinbianyan.This rock is 378m high, just resembles a lifted steel whip, directly pointing into the sky, making people watch it with awe. What's more, its stone structure is that of red quartzose sandstone and limestone,which,in the sunshine,illuminates golden lights,and hence the name Golden Whip Rock. It is the highest, steepest and most magnificent stone peak in the scenic area of Zhangjiajie. As people praise: "Everywhere you can see famous mountains and great rivers. Only Golden Whip Rock is the most marvelous of all the marvelous".

Look, there is something more marvelous still. A huge peak is leaning closely onto the left side of the magic Whip. It resembles a powerful eagle, with its head lifted. One of its wings is flapped, ready to soar into the sky, while the other is still mightily half-embracing the Golden Whip Rock.So it is called "The Condor Guarding the Whip", also one of the ace scenic spots of Jinbianxi.

After seeing the spectacle of Golden Whip Rock, you may wonder why the nature should be so mysterious. As demonstrated by science, three hundred and eighty million years ago, it was a vast sea here. About one hundred million years ago, as the result of lash by sea waves, quartzose sandstone deposited over 500m thick on the sea floor. Later, this place became dry land after the strong rise by the new structure movement. When the land surface rose, with the action of flowing water, some small sands and stones were washed away. Besides, rocks collapsed under the action of gravity, and were washed slowly by rainfalls and streams. All these factors have made Zhangjiajie area a rocky and woody landform of peculiar quartzose sand stone, which is composed of a series of pillars and peaks, square mountains and valleys. Seeing this marvelous scenery, we cannot but sigh for the uncanny craftsmanship of great nature.

We are enjoying singing birds and fragrant flowers in mountains. Please notice those strange-shaped flowers along the stream. They rather resemble lobsters.Right,they are called "Lobster Flower". It is a rare herbaceous plant, which sprouts in spring, blossoms in summer,and bear fruits in autumn and whose leaves fall in winter.

People say that Wulingyuan has two bright eyes, and now we see one of them--Purple Grass Pond(Zicaotan).It is so called because a kind of purple grass was said to always grow on the wall of the pond. Here, the river course abruptly widens, and the waters rushing down from Shadaogou. After about 15m of repeated blocking, no longer have so many ripples and waves, The surface of the pond is as tranquil as a mirror. The pond, with a width of 4m and a depth of about 5m,is the hoted for the national secon-class protective animals--giant salamanders, and once was the production place of the renowned Golden Whip Fish. Now, my explanation is come to an end. Thank you.
