Yangshuo: The Yulong River
The Yulong (Dragon) River is the largest tributary of the Li River within Yangshuo county. A dragon is said to have been so impressed with the natural beauty along the river that it decided to stay in the area, thus giving the river its name.
The river is 43 km long and winds its way through some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. It’s a great place to see the rural lifestyle of the locals. Peaks tower over the lush farmland and there is an abundance of good photo opportunities.
There are many trails that are great for both
and hiking. You can also go bamboo rafting on the river between the Yulong Bridge and Gongnong Bridge. This stretch of the river is particularly scenic. The ancient Yulong bridge near Baisha town is also well worth seeing if you have the time as well as Fuli Bridge. They are both over four hundred years old.
