The Grand Canyon Scenic Spot in Enshi
The Grand Canyon lies in the Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture. It's 46km away from the city proper of Lichuan and 60km away from the city proper of Enshi. The canyon has a total length of 108 km and covers an area of more than 300 square kilometers. In the Grand Canyon, there are precipitous mountain peaks, long bold cliffs and lengthy waterfalls which have the momentum of a loud shout into the air; the Qingjiang （Clear River） down the bottom of the canyon is crystal clear which makes you fancy that you've thoroughly remold yourself。
In the Grand Canyon, the body of the mountain is variegated and the Qingjiang River valley is incised. There are such wonders that are different from the Five Great Mountains as the following:
The first is the white clouds rising from the Singing River. In the Mufu Grand Canyon clouds rise from the Qingjiang River like a jumbo soaring dragon, zigzagging, stretching for miles, plump and smooth skinned. What a feast for eyes!
The second is the precipice surrounded by peak clusters. Karst landform is generally the case of where there is precipice, there is no peak clusters, and vice versa. But in the Mufu Grand Canyon, not only there are both of them but also they are larger in size and higher in grade.
The third is the Geo-fracture Receives the Waterfall. In the Grand Canyon, the Yun Long （Cloud Dragon） River Geo-fracture has a total length of 7.5 km and an utmost depth of 75 m. It is so far the world's longest U-shaped geo-fracture.
The fourth is the geo-fracture is accompanied by cenotes. The underground river between Long Qiao He （Dragon Bridge River） in Feng Jie and the Grand Canyon is totally 50 km in length, which is the world's longest. There are 108 cenotes on the underground river, like the famous Karez in Xinjiang. It's very rare and spectacular.
What's more, to make the tour more delighted and easier for tourists, tens of millions of Yuan in RMB have been invested by the administration of the scenic spot for building the escalators in the Grand Canyon Scenic Spot, while those in the Geofracture Scenic Spot are also under intense development. （阮国春 译）
