Tourist evaluation [Jinhua Palace National Mine Park] tourist attractions
@ Gold The next day in Datong, I didn't rush to the famous Yungang Grottoes, but got off the bus when it was one stop away from Yungang. My destination in the morning was Jinhuagong Coal Mine. Shanxi is the coal capital, public, private, large and small. It is estimated that the number is too large to count. The Jinhua Palace I went to is a national level coal mine. When I visited the south of Shanxi several years ago, I learned that there was a project to visit the underground. However, it was only open to teams at that time, and it needed to make an appointment in advance. I had called to consult before coming, and now the Jinhua Palace is open to individual tourists, and there is no need to make an appointment in advance. The history of Jinhuagong Coal Mine can be traced back to before the founding of the People's Republic of China. Now it has become a living community. Outside the innermost coal mine working area, it is surrounded by primary schools, health centers, residential areas, even hotels and hotels. You know, the coal mine I used to imagine was just a dark hole. With curiosity for me, the staff of the coal mine warmly received me. First of all, I went to change into the work clothes in the well. The clothes and shoes in the changing room are large and uniform. When I put on the spacious work clothes, the whole person was shaking. After the change, the staff took me to the worker's bathroom. Today in Datong, the temperature dropped a little, and it was snowing in the morning. I struggled with the staff in the snow, but I still did not forget to ask why I went to the staff bathroom? The staff said that the workers who went down the well need to clean themselves in time after they went up the well, so the bathroom is both the entrance to the well and the exit to the well. When we entered the staff bathroom, we first went to the goods workshop, got the miner's lamp and first-aid kit, tied them to ourselves, and made these preparations before we really started to go down the well. The lower wellhead of Jinhua Palace is unusually clean and bright. We took the elevator enclosed by the iron fence and went down to the ground 285 meters below in about five minutes. Continue, we got on the orange small iron train again, and drove into the deep coal mine with the tinkling sound. I don't know whether it is because we are underground. The original 15 minute journey of the small train has become a bit long in the dark environment. Instead of driving into the deepest mine, we stopped at a working level, which has now been specially opened for tourists. The so-called working level is the mining interface, so we can see the development process of China's coal industry under the coal seams on both sides. From the original drill and knock back mining, to blasting mining, to general machine mining, to the current comprehensive machine tunneling mining, over the decades, coal mining has developed into automatic production, greatly reducing the output of coal mining It ensures the safety of production workers. After years of mining, thick coal crystals have been formed in the coal seams on both sides. When we passed the overhead lamp, we saw the coal seams shining like diamonds. The return journey is still to take a small train. This kind of iron train is very similar to the small train that children like to play in the amusement park. There are three cars per fuel, and each car can take four people. A small train can take up to a dozen cars.
@ Time on speech : It's worth going. The mine park is clean, tidy, and reasonably arranged. It is close to Yungang Grottoes. There is a telescope on the mountain, which can take a closer look at the surrounding scenery. The underground exploration tour is very worthwhile, but you must gather five people to go. There are also mine cars and locomotives in the scenic area, which can be visited and photographed. In short, it is highly recommended here.
@ sadkhc : It's an unexpected discovery that there is such a well built coal park. It's very fun to go down the well to explore. Unfortunately, it's worth it if you don't take photos with your mobile phone!
