Qiantang's Most Spectacular River Tide Since 2010 2019-07-16

September 11, 2014 saw the most spectacular Qiantang River tide at the most crowded Xiaoshan Beauty Dam. It was estimated that over 500,000 people watched the tide on the banks of Qiantang River.

When the high tide arrived, the 1.5 meters high crest swallowed the better part of the unmanned area over the dam and carried with sands, fish and shrimps. The rolling tide even swept over the dam to the highway and tipped over the 30 meter-high tide-blocking net.

Renowned as a wondrous spectacle of the Qiantang River tide, the tide thrust is up to 4-7 tons per square meter which can easily push tons of boulders to more than 10 meters high. Three tide-blocking walls have been washed over 30 meters away and dozens of 300 kilos weigh boulders were swept to the bank. Many spectators said with excitement that the tide was more spectacular than last year.




Meanwhile down stream the Yanguan tide also reached new heights. According to official data from the local hydrological station in Haining, a 2.2 meter high tide arrived at Yanguan Township at 13:15pm, the most spectacular of it's kind since 2010.
 
During the three days following this spectacle, the tide will continue to keep a high momentum, reaching heights of 1.8, 1.9 and 1.5 meters respectively. Specific arrival times of the river tide can be found on Hangzhou's hydrological information network.
