Blue Moon Valley

·The predecessor is the “Baishui River” that people have known earlier. It is located in the valley to the north of Ganhaizi at the foot of Yulong Snow Mountain and to the south of Yunshanping.
·It originated from the melting of snow and ice, flowing down the cliffs, and finally formed a clear and unparalleled river in the deep valley of the upper reaches of the Blue Moon Valley.


· On a sunny day, the color of the water is blue, and the valley is crescent-shaped. From a distance, it looks like a blue moon inlaid at the foot of Yulong Snow Mountain, so it is called Lanyuegu.Legend has it that it was the prototype of the Blue Moon Valley in “Disappearing Horizon” by British writer James Hilton.


·During the flow process, four large water surfaces are formed due to the obstacles of the mountains, which are called “Yuye” Lake, “Jingtan” Lake, “Blue Moon” Lake and “Tingtao” Lake.
