Hidden within Yuzhong county of Lanzhou, Gansu province, the valley, nestled between Maxian Mountain and Xinglong Mountain, is an exquisite natural marvel. This picturesque valley, akin to a masterpiece created by nature, presents enchanting landscapes that captivate the senses.

The area offers around 15 charming camping sites, such as "Mapo Watershed," "Haban Cha," and "River Bay," each nestled in the unspoiled beauty of nature. Towering ancient trees, meandering streams, bubbling springs, luxurious grasslands, as well as rocks, moss, wildflowers, rustic scenery, and dwellings collectively form an idyllic camping paradise.

Notably, the village of Bamen Temple in Xinying town stands out as the most picturesque location. Here, gentle streams flow, diverse ancient trees sway gracefully, lush grasslands bloom with lotus flowers, and colossal rocks covered in moss create a scene reminiscent of a fairyland, offering a serene and delightful experience.

Tourists can engage in activities such as harvesting fresh vegetables at Shuhuai Farm for a delightful hot pot feast, or pitching a tent at Lower Bamen Temple campsite to savor the cool summer nights while delighting in local cuisine.
