Dam Wanfohu

    Dam Wanfohu is one of the great spectacles in the spot. It is 1000 meters long, 190.8 meters wide and 33 meters high. The construction of the Dam, a work done by millions of Shucheng people picking on shoulders following a call from the government, began in November 1958, and was completed in April 1961 shortly after the birth of the new China. Mr. Toran, former UN Dams Commission honorary chairman, praised it as a ¡°very great project¡± and  ¡°a miracle in the world water conservancy history". And, the UNESCO gave the dam the name of the world's largest work done by man¡¯s power.
