Spectacular tidal bore surges up Qiantang River
The Qiantang River tidal bore is a world-renowned natural phenomenon known for its momentum and charm, caused by the gravitational pull of the moon: The leading edge of the incoming tide forms waves of water that travels up the narrow river – against the direction of the river current. Known locally as the «Silver Dragon», the wave sweeps past the city of Hangzhou, menacing shipping in the harbor. The best time to view the tidal bore is between the 15th and 18th day of the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, exactly the Mid-Autumn Festival.
