Wujiangyuan Baili gallery is an important part of Qianli Wujiang riverside tourism belt. It is a water tourism loop connecting zhijindong scenic area. It integrates Gaoxia, Pinghu, karst cave and waterfall. It is very spectacular and beautiful. It is a model of Gaoxia and Pinghu in karst area of Western China. It is known as a natural gallery with “a line above the sky and a bay in the gorge”. Wujiang River is the most beautiful cliff gallery on the Wujiang River. It roars all the way from the high gorge, deep valley and high mountains of Bijie. Under the cliff landscape of Dapeng, it presents the magnificent landscape of the intersection of two sources.

Wujiang River is one of the main tributaries of the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. It has two sources, Liuchong River in the north and Sancha River in the south. Both of them originate from Weining Yi, Miao and Hui Autonomous County, the highest terrain in western Guizhou. After several hundred kilometers of flowing in the deep gorge, the two streams finally merged into Wujiang River, and then continued to flow in the deep gorge across the central and Northern Guizhou, and finally merged into the Yangtze River in Fuling, Chongqing. In the 1960s, the state built the dam of Dongfeng Hydropower Station here, and the lake surface poured back into two streams, each with tens of kilometers, turning the rolling Wujiang River into a trident, very calm lake – Dongfeng Lake.

Dongfeng Lake, with charming scenery and beautiful scenery, integrates the scenery of Gaoxia, Pinghu, karst cave and waterfall. It has always been known as “the mountain is like the Three Gorges and the water is better than the Three Gorges, the water is like the Lijiang River and the mountain is better than the Lijiang River”. The 11 twists and turns contain the beauty of power, spirit and meandering.
