Hehe Lanshan Rock Painting It is located at the corner of Helan Mountain and is currently a tourist attraction open to tourists. The whole scene is divided into two parts, one part is a three-story museum. If you don't know about rock paintings, it is highly recommended to hire a tour guide or take a tour guide, otherwise you will basically not understand anything. The tour guide mainly explains the history and types of the entire rock painting, as well as the famous rock paintings from all over the world, and the museum has corresponding imitations. In other words, in this museum, you can see all the famous rock paintings in the world that we have heard of. After reading the museum, it will finally reach the 3rd floor. The door is the bus point of the battery car. It will take us directly to the second part, which is the location of the rock painting, at the foot of Helan Mountain. The most amazing of the many rock paintings is also the representative of Helan Mountain rock paintings - the sun god. Its location is on the mountainside. We can go up the stone ladder. The reason why he is called the sun god is that whenever it rains, all the rocks here will be drenched, but it will not drip. It is dry all year round and it is also the highest of all rock paintings. In recent years, due to the fall of the rock mass, some of the rock paintings have collapsed. Although the local scenic spots will be protected, they cannot be completely prevented. They can only be fixed. Slowly, these landscapes may disappear. So there is a chance to have a look.

Helan Mountain rock paintings are masterpieces of the Yi, Yueshi, Xiongnu, Xianbei, Tiele, Turkic, and Party projects that have been active in this region since ancient times. Helan Mountain has tens of thousands of rock paintings and has been washed by thousands of years of wind and rain. Slowly weathering, in the reduction. The biggest satisfaction of the rock paintings of Helan Mountain is that in addition to the style of a rock painting, there is also a rock sheep that has seen rare legends. It is said that the rock sheep are not easy to see. If you are fortunate enough to see them, then you are lucky. . Regardless of whether you are interested in rock paintings or not, rock paintings are still clear, to see the products of this millennium! The rock paintings and texts on the map are not produced in the same period. The text is only about 900 years old, and the rock paintings are 3,000 to 10,000 years old. The rock paintings are polished with stone tools. The text is carved out with metal equipment. Standing at the Helan Mountain Pass, you can see the main peak of Helan Mountain. It is also the only place where you can see the main peak. The Helan Mountain Pass has a beautiful scenery, a strange peak, a strange rock, and more than 600 meters on both sides of the valley. On the rocky wall of the mountain, there are more than a thousand individual graphic rock paintings, such as the precious national art gallery.

Ningxia's road is wide and vast, with the atmosphere and calmness of the north. In this vast world, visit the Helan Mountain rock paintings, suggesting that 30 oceans should be invited to explain, otherwise they will face a stone with strange patterns. The only thing you can understand is the excellent imagination. About the origin of the Helan Mountain rock paintings, a large number of stoneware and pottery pieces unearthed in recent years with the characteristics of Qijia culture have buckled the beginning of the Chinese civilization. Far before the text, pictures have become the main way for any kind of civilization to record events or express emotions. Most of these figures are animals (more livestock), human faces (should be masks of wizards), and gods Through them, we can understand the culture, important events, and the devout beliefs in the past, which confirm that Helankou is a sacred place for ancient sacrifices. The performance is a good form of interpretation of culture, ecology, and human reproduction~ reproductive worship is the main body of Xixia rock painting, and animal husbandry has become the greatest gift given by the gods. The face painted with natural stone marks, in the deep eyes of only one side, is there a lot of stories that are incomprehensible... There are not many rock paintings, 2 hours is enough to swim, and then it is still in various historical sites. A must-attach museum, it is essential to visit and give yourself a macro-level understanding.
