Bolanggu – Wave Valley 波浪谷

Location: Shaanxi Province, Yulin City, Jingbian County, Longzhou Village
陕西省 榆林市 靖边县 龙洲乡

How to get there: 1 hour by car from Jingbian County. The scenic areas are several kilometers away from each other, so we paid 250 yuan for a driver and car for a full day.

There are no entrances/exits and no tickets.

Time of visit: April 2019

Wave Valley has been officially closed since June 2018, and it was still officially closed when we visited in April 2019, but in reality it was free to visit. A few parts are inaccessible due to construction work.
