Dujiangyan Irrigation Project
Dujiangyan Irrigation Project, one of the oldest irrigation systems in the world, is a wonder in the development of Chinese science. In China, Chengdu is always praised as the Tian Fu Zhi Guo, which means “Land of Abundance”. Over 2,200 years ago, the city was threatened by frequent floods caused by flooding of the Minjiang River (a tributary of the Yangtze River). Li Bing, a local official of Sichuan Province at that time, together with his son, decided to construct an irrigation system on the Minjiang River to prevent flooding. After a lengthy study and a lot of hard work by the local people, the great Dujiangyan Irrigation Project was completed. The project consists of three important parts, namely Yuzui, Feishayan and Baopingkou, which were scientifically designed to control the water flow of the rivers automatically from the mountains to the plains throughout the year. Thanks to Dujiangyan, the Chengdu Plain has been free from floods and enjoys the biggest irrigation area of more than 6, 687 square kilometers (2,581 square miles) in China.

POST-SYMPOSIUM  TOURS
Two lines of post-symposium tour (3 to 5 days each) will be organized to

Jiuzhaigou valley (UNESCO world heritage)

Jiuzhai Valley is located in Nanping County, 450 kilometers (about 280 miles) to the north of Chengdu City, Sichuan, covering a total area of 720 square kilometers, and the valley is 50 kilometers in length. Jiuzhai Valley, literally the Nine Village Valley, is known for the nine Tibetan villages within its boundary. Besides, Jiuzhai Valley is famous for its diversity in natural scenery, including snowy peaks, double waterfalls, colorful forests, peaceful lakes and green sea. Jiuzhai Valley is honored as "fairy-land on earth” for its unique beauty. On December 14, 1992, it was approved to be one of the world natural heritages by the UNESCO.

Jiuzhai Valley consists of six scenic spots: Changhai, Jianyan, Nuorilang, Shuzheng, Zharu and Heihai. The graceful scenes of Jiuzhai Valley are mainly concentrated in a Y-shaped valley which consists of Nuorilang Gully and its two branches. In addition to gorgeous scenery, the fresh air and bright sunshine also make Jiuzhai Valley an ideal place for tourism, sightseeing and vacation.


Three Gorges Project
The Three Gorges Project was completed in 2009. Situated at Sandouping Town of Yichang City, Hubei Province, the Three Gorges Dam is the largest hydro-power station in the world with an annual energy output of 84.7 billion kilowatt-hours. The Three Gorges Dam includes three parts: the dam itself, a hydroelectric station, and a system of locks. The height of the Three Gorges Dam is 185 meters (607 ft) above the sea level. The dam is about 2,300 meters (7,546 ft) long and about 115 meters (377 ft) wide. With a water capacity of 39.3 billion cubic meters, the dam will hold a huge reservoir which will efficiently prevent flooding in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. The 1,000-square-kilometers (386 square miles) reservoir is an artificial lake showing visitors a picturesque view in sunny days that the wide blue lake and the vast azure sky merge at the horizon.

The dam would discharge flood during the flood period (July-August), if you are just visiting the Three Gorges Dam at that time, you will enjoy the marvelous spectacle of flood discharge. As a modern wonder, the Three Gorges Dam has had a massive impact upon the region's ecology and people as well as forms a new landscape adorning the Yangtze River.
