Xiaolangdi Dam (小浪底 - Xiǎolàngdǐ)I had a choice of where to go: to the Shaolin Temple or the Xiaolangdi Dam. What was my choice – is clear. Someday I want to visit the Three Gorges hydropower plant on the Yangtze River. But while I have the opportunity to go to the hydroelectric power station on the Huanghe River. Xiaolangdi project included the construction of hydropower plant to generate electricity, the creation of the reservoir – for flood control or irrigation.
There is a bus that goes to Xiaolangdi Dam from the bus station located opposite the old railway station. The distance is 40 km.
By the way, in China before the departure of intercity buses a controller comes into the salon and checks whether all passengers and the driver have fastened the seat belts!
