Songhua River, Yichun
(5/5 based on 10+ reviews on the web)
The Songhua River, also known as Haixi, the Sungari River, and the Xingal, is a river in Northeast China, and is the largest tributary of the Heilong River, flowing about 1434km from Changbai Mountains through Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces. The river drains 557180sqmi of land, and has an annual discharge of 2463m3/s.As the Second Songhua River, it joins the Amur at Tongjiang, Heilongjiang. It is then interrupted by the Baishan, Hongshi and Fengman dams, which are used for hydroelectricity production. Fengman Dam forms a lake that stretches 62km upstream. Below the dam, the Second Songhua flows northwest until its largest tributary, the Nen River, joins it near Da'an and creates the Songhua. The Nen River drains the northern Manchurian Plain. The river travels east until it joins the Hulan River near Harbin. Then it passes between the northern end of the eastern Manchurian mountain system and the Lesser Khingan Range. The river then flows into the Amur River valley. The river freezes from late November until March. It has its highest flows when the mountain snow melts during the spring thaw. The river is navigable up to Harbin by medium-sized ships. Smaller craft can navigate the Songhua up to Jilin and the Nen River up to Qiqihar.

  • 松花江的江水在冬天整个被冻瓷实了,不知道的以为是一个湖面。整条江都成了人们娱乐的场所,滑冰、筑景、或者简单地在江面走一走。突然想,江面的平平静静,江底下的暗流涌动,还是很浪漫的说。 
  • 我是夏季6月去的,略微有点热,但是穿着长袖坐在江边上的时候,还是很凉爽。江边上有不少人钓鱼,不少人跳广场舞,坐在边上,慢慢看太阳落下,光线逐渐变暗,还是很美的风景。6月落日挺迟的,大概6点多7点才落下。 
  • 可以走索道也可以走船,我是走索道的。 携程订往返60元,感觉挺实惠的,全程13分钟,可以看到整个松花江还有太阳岛公园,以及哈尔滨市高空景象。
