The water wheels along the Yellow River are a very special part of Lanzhou's history. Although the river runs alongside where the town was established - it is a very dry region and over 200 water wheels were established to bring water to the region for farming and for the community. They are fascinating structures and some are still operational so that one can experience how they operate. A walk along the river is very satisfying and every tourist to Lanzhou must talk a leisurely walk to enjoy Lanzhou.

An excellent display of "working" water wheels that are in a beautiful parkland/garden setting along the Yellow River.

A winter stroll along the river in January isn't always appealing, but the history of the waterwheels made it worth the cold. While I didn't get to see the wheels in action, I could still learn and appreciate the amazing design work that put this water system in place. If you go, continue walking across the steel bridge, and warm up in the small eating shops on the side streets.

This small area by the riverside is a free area to stroll, despite there being a ticket office and barriers. Not sure why as you just walk in and out. It's quite pleasant, but the two giant waterwheels are not in action, yet remain quite an impressive sight. The riverfront gives very nice views and it's a nice place to stroll.
