Foreigner | Discover Shannxi

Lingguan Gorge, located 5km southwest of Fengxian County of Baoji City, is a national 3A-level scenic spot featuring disused railway, oxygen bars, and ancient Qiang culture. Sitting at the junction of Shaanxi and Gansu province, it has been a critical fort between the two provinces since ancient times and the first grand gorge along the Jialing River.

Baoji-Chengdu Railway flashes by

In August 1981, 23 years after the Baocheng Railway opened to traffic, the rain continued for over 40 days in Fengxian County, leading to a catastrophic flood disaster. As a result, a section of the Baocheng Railway was diverted. Lingguan Gorge was build on disused railway and also endowed with hills and waters. It is a comprehensive tourist attraction that integrates natural resources, cultural landscapes, eco-tourism resources, and adventure experience.
