Dujiangyan Irrigation System - Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China

Situated on the upper and middle reaches of the Minjiang River in west Chengdu Plain, the Dujiangyan Irrigation System is a historical and cultural site in the Dujiangyan City, a tourist city honored by relevant Chinese national departments. As a landmark water conservancy project, for the last 2,200 years the water contraol project has been serving as an agricultural lifeline of the west Chengdu Plain. The system is made up of Yuzui Dyke, Feishayan, a spill for discharging flood and silt, and Baopingkou, a main diversion gate to draw in water for irrigation.

A small confession - I am normally off doing my own thing - especially in a group of 600 photographers - and I went right and didn't notice they went left - so while I was exploring the park and the surrounding city streets, the group was walking up the hills to see the converging waters from the irrigation project - which i missed. The performers did a cermony for our group - being there first I took most of mine before it started.
