Luochuan is an old district of Chinese revolution.
In 1937,at this crucial moment for Chinese people,
the Communist Party held the conference for expanding the Political Bureau at Luochuan.
Historically, it is called Luochuan Conference.
At this conference, Ten Guiding Principles for Resisting Japan and Saving the Nation was raised.
It advocated for resisting Japanese invaders in the entire nation.
Decided to focus on the battlefield and enemy’s rear area,
Opened the battlefield in the enemy’s rear area,
Built the Anti-Japanese Base behind the enemy lines,
Pointed out the fighting direction for the Party and all people in China,
Set the foundation for the great success in the Anti-Japanese War.
80 years later,
Luochuan people have inherited and promoted the revolutionary genes.

the national famous tourist district for revolutionary education.
It is also the base for Chinese revolutionary education and patriotism education.
The vast golden loess land
lets Luochuan become a bright pearl on the Loess Plateau.
The loess landform, 与深海沉积、deep-sea deposit
