Yulong River is the biggest branch of the
Li River in YangShuo County. The clear water runs smoothly
past fields,farmhouses, trees and mountains. Traveling
by bamboo raft you will be surrounded by the crystal
water and feel relaxed and happy in the arms of the
green mountains. Looking from the mountaintops, you
can see a vivid panorama of the landscape with the green
crystal water flowing through the colorful valley below.
Passengers are entranced with the harmonious
picture of women washing clothes beside the river,ducks
swimming on the river,bamboo rafts moving under the

has a different kind of beauty than the Li River. Along
the Yulong River you can find Fuli Bridge, Guiyi Original
Site, Ancient Village, Xiangui Bridge, the Zhus'Camp,Chuan
Cave, Rhinoceros Deep Pool, Zhaoyang Camp, Seven Stars
and other scenic spots.
Most tourist traffic on this river is on
small bamboo rafts. The going price for a trip on these
rafts is about 150 Yuan per raft.
Swimming is also a popular activity on
this river. There are several swimming holes on the
river. Swimming here is safer than on the Li River as
there is a smaller current and it is not as deep.

bridges and mountains along this waterway is one of
the favorite choices of photographers and artists coming
to the area. For those who are looking for a fabulous
