About Yulong River

The Yulong River, also named the Little Li River, as it branches out of the main river is a calm water body that winds through rice paddies and hills and flows under ancient bridges making it the ideal retreat for tourists who want to spend some time relaxing. The entire landscape is decorated with toothy karst hills, thick bamboo groves, water buffaloes wandering the fields, farmers tending the rice paddies, fishermen gliding along on their narrow bamboo rafts and village women washing clothes on the river banks.  Even if you have taken a cruise or gone rafting on the Li River, you should not miss this smaller, quainter river to get a glimpse of the rural life.
