Nine Bend River: Symphony of Mountain and River



Nine Bend River, a key scenic site of Mount Wuyi, is famous for bamboo drifting, the most famous one in southeast China. Scenery along its course is eye-dazzling. Originated from the deep forest of western Mount Wuyi, Nine Bend River plays hide and seek with the Karst peaks and stretches a distance of 62.8 meters long. On the bamboo boat, you will pass the Biography Conservation Area in the middle of Mount Wuyi Scenic Site and the typical Karst Landform Area in the east.

Nine Bend River resembles a flowing ribbon which strings 36 peaks, 99 rocks and 9 abrupt turns along its way together. Though with average altitude of around 400m, peak clusters here are steep, diversified and impressive. Thanks to the subtropical weather, these stone peaks are bestowed with exuberant vegetation. Thus, you can see the intoxicating rare scene of trees thrive along the rocks here. Except winter is dull, the other three seasons here are blessed with breathtaking charm.

It is a symphony composed of mountains and rivers, waterfalls and streams. Besides, you can experience the poetic beauty and aesthetic value advocated by traditional Chinese culture here.

Since long time ago, the outstanding natural scenery here has attracted scholars, poets and paintings to live or give lectures here. The mountains and waterscape in Mount Wuyi not only nourished their mind but also triggered the sparkles of intelligence. It is the source of the inspiration of poetry, philosophy, calligraphy and painting.

If you pay enough attention, you will catch a glimpse of these cultural relics along your way: 18 suspension coffins, 35 Academic Relics of famous scholars include Zhuxi and 450 m2 stone inscriptions. These masterpieces blend with environment harmoniously, shedding light on the philosophy of our ancestors. In 1982, Mount Wuyi was listed as the first batch of National Scenic Site. In 2007, it was authorized as the 5A Tourism Site by National Tourism Bureau.

Admission Fee: 100RMB Per Person

Notice: For the sake of safety, Bamboo Drifting here is not available all the time, depending on the water level.
