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.

women washing clothes beside the river, ducks swimming
on the river, bamboo rafts moving under the old bridge,
and farmers working in the fields.Yulong has a different
kind of beauty than the Li River. Along the Yulong River

Village, Xiangui Bridge, the Zhus'Camp, Chuan Cave,
Rhinoceros Deep Pool, Zhaoyang Camp, Seven Stars and

The Chinese word 'Yulong' refers
to 'meeting a dragon'. Local legend has
it that a dragon from the East Sea strolled
across the Yulong River and, being deeply
impressed by the attractive landscape, decided
to stay there forever. The villagers living
on the river bank saw the dragon several
times, and hence named it the Yulong River.
Local people use rafts as daily
transportation up and down the river between
house, markets, and rice paddies. Some villagers
made bigger rafts and started to woo the
travelers and soon it became a highlight
of tour around Yangshuo. Sitting on the
reclining chair on the raft, you can enjoy
an all around view of the natural, rural
life down the river.
