The Rock Art of the Helan Mountains, the main concentration of carvings is found at Helankou, the dramatic gorge cutting north-west through the mountain chain. It is 50 kms away from Yinchuan, the provincial capital of Ningxia Autonomous Region. Almost 6,000 rock engravings are distributed in here, depicting various contents such as human face, animals, herding and hunting, battle, sexual intercourse, sacrifice and dance etc. The engravings have been produced over a considerable period of time, around between 3,000 and 10,000 years ago.
