The Qiantang River spring tide, with its spectacular scene of "the huge turbid waves are emptied, the rivers are overturned and the mountains are destroyed", attracts numerous people to watch. It is one of the two world-famous surging tides. After being incorporated into the development of modern tourism industry, Qianjiang tide has set a record of gathering more than one million self paid tourists in three or five days. However, under the charming temptation of the tide, there is a hidden danger. According to relevant reports, every year, people die from watching the Qianjiang River tide. Only this summer, the Qianjiang River tide has been swallowed
A: on August 18 of the lunar calendar, people who come to Haining, Zhejiang Province to watch the tide come in groups. At this time, the shore, a sea of people, people anxiously waiting for the arrival of the exciting moment. In a short time, the crowd was in a commotion, only a white line appeared in the distance, from far to near; in a moment, the tide standing on the wall was like a tall water wall, roaring, roaring, deafening.
The cause of spring tide in Qiantang
The formation of Qiantang River spring tide is related to the local unique topography. The Qiantang River's entrance to the sea is wide outside and narrow inside, in the shape of a trumpet. The East Bay mouth is 100 kilometers wide, while the West Haining City, near Yanguan Town, is only three kilometers. When the tide is rising, the tide flows in from the mouth of the Bay and flows to the West. Restricted by the gradually narrow river banks on both sides, the water surface becomes narrower and narrower. When the tide is pushed back and blocked forward, the sound is like thunder, the mountains and the sea are like a million horses galloping, which is spectacular.
Best viewing time
August 18 of the lunar calendar is the best time of the year. Actually, around the Mid Autumn Festival, it's a good time to watch the Qianjiang tide. It's expected that Qiantang River surge will be more spectacular in 2016. The forecast of flood time and surge height will be published on Hangzhou hydrological information network one day in advance.
