Aershan is a group of active volcano names, where the land is black color, some like cinder, due to the rich variety of minerals and rare metals, so I even believe it can easily identify the dog head gold. At the same time, this piece of volcanic area is very large, from Aershan to Chaihe area, covering more than two hundred kilometers, there are four active volcanoes. Volcanic rocks, volcanic ash is very nourishing plants, this way is full of dense deep forests. Aershan tourism is full of novelty feeling, stop watch carefully, ten days and a half I'm afraid is not enough!
Hidden in Aershan a lot of knowledge, Geopark Jane is an encyclopedia, out of a curiosity, parent-child travel formed the majority of passenger flow. Recently, it is the season with the largest number of colors, gathering photographers from all over the country. From morning till night, they are well-equipped with equipment and walk among major scenic spots.
In the past few days, we have a group of five people who, like most tourists, live in Tianchi Town and follow the order of scenic spots, like eating beans, one by one.
Dammed Lake and Tianchi
To take pictures, the most can not miss is Aershan morning. Volcanic place, the crust is thin, the underground river with geothermal and sulfur smell poured from the seam, slowly flowing through the mountains, leaving a circle around the mist, and then condensed into a cloud, drifting away The whole process is like a breath.
Geological Park is divided into seven Tianchi, nine dammed lake. Ursus lagoon and azalea lake closer to the residence, became the morning shoot, twilight best place to take a little later, the best gazebo will be covered with a tripod.
Large and small lakes at an elevation of 1000 ~ 1400m between the Mongolian border river Hala Ha originated here. In the early Quaternary period of geologic age (from 160 to 180 million years ago), volcanic eruptions occurred. Large amounts of lava flowed from the west side of volcanic cones and poured into the valleys down the northwest and into the nearby tributaries of the Halaha River. Magma flows into the river, when the water is cold, forming a beaded lake in the river - dammed lake.
Tianchi and dammed lake structure is very different, also known as "high crater lake", Aershan stopped erupting, cooled for a long time ago, about 300000 years ago, before the formation of Tianchi. After cooling the volcanic lava constitutes an indestructible wall, perennial water into a pool.
Aershan Tianchi some incredible place. First, long drought does not dry up, long rain does not overflow. Tianchi no river into the water, there is no river leakage, a pool of water is extremely clean, not up. The second magic is dammed lake has fish, but Tianchi has never been found fish. Some people put fish fry in the pool, it is strange that neither see the diving, did not see the dead fish float to the lake, you can say no fish, dead fish can not be seen. Amazing third Tianchi deep unfathomable. Someone once measured the depth of Tianchi at one end of the long rope tied to a heavy object and put it into the lake. After dropping more than 300 meters into the lake, there were experts who speculated that Tianchi was connected to the underground river!
Aershan sooner or later the temperature is lower, cold air struck again today, it started drizzle. Stone pond missed the morning shot, but met a dark river down the mountain. River flows from the depths of the distant forest, put here a large S-type, cross-strait fertile plants, flocks of cattle and sheep.
From San Tan Gap to Jinjiang Gulch Forest Farm about 20 km long Halaha River section, due to the geothermal effect, underwater warm rock release heat, how many years of the river has never frozen, flow throughout the year. In the winter of minus 40 degrees, dripping into the ice season, all the rivers in the Arxan rivers are frozen, only this section of the river steaming, running water. The stones exposed on the river often see the accumulation of ice and snow, but the water in the river is not affected by the weather, the water is still growing with green plants and the shore is sometimes foggy wonders ...... This is the magic of the river .
Volcanoes and geothermal heat are like "twin brothers," and geothermal resources are generally found in volcanic places. Geothermal volcanoes tend to form a large number of rich in mineral-rich hot springs, bathing in the hot springs can change the pH of the skin, its chemicals can stimulate the autonomic nervous and endocrine and immune systems, so as to cure and health care.
Volcano Canyon and Shitenglin
The surface grows rich and diverse vegetation, the underground material composition more complex, many scientists will species rich volcanic rock as a treasure house of rare metals.
Aershan vast forests, hidden in a 11 km volcanic canyon, a hundred meters deep bottom was W-shaped, the main body of volcanic lava fracture zone. Basalt lava flows erupted by volcanoes are formed after thousands of years of water erosion. Look at each piece of stone, but also retain the color of the flame. They used to boil boiling magma, and after freezing, condensation, weathering, cracking, broken only to form the present.
Thousands of years ago this piece of land was volcanic lava into a ruin of life, still scarce soil, but still can not stop the vitality of plants. Weathered rock surface growth of a layer of gray moss and lichen, pine roots deep in the surface of the knot, even into one, constitute the dark forces behind the desolate forces.
Allegedly, in the past 500 years, about millions of people worldwide died in a volcanic disaster. However, when the flames went out and vanished, volcanoes also donated a wealth of mineral resources, geothermal heat and mineral springs, which in turn turned them into rich tourism resources.
Volcanoes can create a lot of natural landscapes, mostly volcanic areas are very famous scenic spots. Like the United States, Yellowstone Park, Hawaii, Japan, Mount Fuji, Changbai Mountain are formed by volcanic geological park. Aershan volcano makes people brainstorming, Mongolian savannah is actually not that simple!
