Introduction: It is an old-brand scenic spot that preceded others in development. With classical scenery in South Taihang, it is a state-level AAAA scenic spot, a national geological park, a natural conservation area for macaque and Top 10 Scenic Spot in Henan province. It can be deemed as ‘soul of Taihang and spirit of China’ and is honored as ‘Unique Scene in Asia’ by experts on gardening.
The pattern in Baligou tourism spot is double-layered.
Down Bali lies below. It stretches from the gateway to Sky River Waterfall. Its main scenic spots cover the Jade Emperor Palace, the macaque area, the Spraying Valley and Sky River Waterfall. Most travelers would return after they land in Sky River Waterfall, the destination.
Upper Bali lies above. Its main scenic spots cover Redstone River and Black Dragon Pond.
Travelers can refer to four ways to come to and fro between Upper Bali and Down Bali.
1. By climbing the stairs: they can start from Sky River waterfall and walk upstairs to Dian Jiang Tai before arriving in Redstone River. As it is toiling, only a handful of travelers choose this way.
2. Precipice ladder: It is a zig-zag iron-clad ladder hanging on the precipice. It lies by Sky River Waterfall. Quite a number of travelers would pay for this way for its adventurousness.
3. Elevator: It is far away from Sky River Waterfall.
4. Strip Sky: It is the only way for dwellers in the mountain to come to and fro between the Upper and Down Bali before the scenic spot was developed. It is thrilling and dangerous. It is close to the elevator. Most travelers would chose the precipice ladder to go up and strip sky to go down.
