Surging tidal bores in Qiantang River amaze spectators

Huge waves were generated after the Qiantang River tidal bores hit a dam wowed spectators in Haining City, east China's Zhejiang Province on Friday.

The surging tides hit the river embankment, splashing into the sky and stirring up a wave more than 10 meters high, then flew back on the same route.

The best time of the year to see the Qiantang tidal bores is midway through the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, often around the Mid-Autumn Festival.
