Liujiaxia (Gorge) Dam, completed in 1969, is the first concrete gravity dam of its kind to be designed, manufactured, and built by the Chinese. One of the largest dams in the world, it is often advertised as a tourist attraction. The arid environment, a short distance outside of the reservoir, is in direct contrast to the picturesque and verdant gorges that rise from the edges of the reservoir.
