Yulong River Bamboo Rafting
The Yulong River, also known as the “Little Li River,” is a tributary of the Li River and is known for its clear waters and breathtaking scenery.
During the Yulong River bamboo rafting experience, visitors ride on a traditional bamboo raft that is propelled along the river by a local boatman using a long bamboo pole.
The rafts are made of bamboo poles tied together and can accommodate 2 passengers at a time. The raft ride takes approximately 1-2 hours, depending on the distance covered.
As the bamboo raft gently floats downstream, visitors can take in the stunning natural beauty of the Yulong River valley, which is dotted with limestone karst mountains, verdant forests, and traditional villages.
Along the way, visitors can see local fishermen fishing with traditional methods and farmers tending their rice paddies.
The experience is peaceful and relaxing, with the only sounds being the gentle lapping of the water and the occasional bird song.
Best Time To Do The Bamboo Rafting
The Yulong River bamboo rafting experience can be enjoyed throughout the year, but the best time to visit is during the warmer months from April to October, when the weather is pleasant and the scenery is at its most vibrant.
Visitors can also choose to combine their bamboo rafting experience with other activities such as hiking, biking, or exploring the local villages.
- Height under 1m and senior over 70 years old and pregnant woman are not allow to take the raft.
- Must bring ID card or passports to board on the raft.
