The Yulong River has a length of 43.5 kilometers and traverses Litang, Chaolong, Yima and Taotian town before it enters Li River around the Pingle Town. For tourists traveling to Guilin and Yangshuo, take a journey for the rafting along the Yulong River is something should not miss out.

Yulong River is especially charming for the spectacular landscapes along the river. The clean and clear water, the verdant karst mountain peaks winding along on both banks, the lush bamboo forests, the ancient bridges, and the rice paddies bring idyllic rural beauty to enjoy.

Bamboo rafting used to be the major transportation method for local people to travel to the markets and fields, now it is a leisure way for tourists to appreciate the beautiful scenery and experience the rural life along the river.
