Yulong River, a major tributary of Li River, flows through some of the most beautiful karst (limestone) sceneries near Yangshuo. 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 nature and rural peaceful life down the river.
The hills along the two banks are of different shapes with dense forests and elegant bamboo-groves. Green all the year round the paddies are full of life and vitality. The water in the river is so clear that you can see to the bottom and standing by the riverside you'll get a picturesque scene with a poetic sense to swell up in your mind. Such scenes will cast away your perplexities and make you immerse in the relaxing atmosphere.
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.
Several bike rides and hikes also follow the Yulong River taking in local villages and rice paddies. These can be some of the most memorable days on your China experience. You can get here easily by bike taking in towns on the banks on the Yulong River.
