What travelers say:

The first dams will be overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the project. Such achievements are not easy to achieve in the light of technological underdevelopment. The dams have been flooded with a series of earthquakes. Continuously reinforced, the dam successfully withstand the magnitude 6 earthquake. The water level on both sides of the dams is about 100 meters apart. Standing on the dam, you can see the crystal clear intoxicating scenery of Wanlv Lake.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Xinfengjiang Reservoir Dam is 6 kilometers away from Heyuan City. It is a concrete structure with a height of 124 meters, a crest width of 5 meters and a length of 440 meters. dam. The spill section is provided with 3 holes. From July 11 to 14, and from August 9 to 16, 1997, the dam was opened twice to release floods. When the flood was released, the lake water rushed out from the gate, and with the whistling sound like thunder, thousands of piles of snow were rolled up, like a picture of a dragon roaring in the sea, which is very spectacular. The dam of Xinfengjiang Power Plant is a miracle in the early stage of socialist construction, and a model for human beings to transform nature and seek advantages and avoid disadvantages. If you hadn't been there, it would be hard for people to imagine that behind such a 100-meter dam is a "sea in the mountains", and there is a medium-sized city with high-rise buildings and graceful people at the foot.
