The water level in October is a little low but it is still a nice trip on a bamboo raft that is pushed down the very slow river by poles. We were there early, but there was a consistent stream of boats. Some singing by groups of rafts, but lots of good pictures of the rock formations.

Very relaxing and enjoyable. Although it rained for part of our trip, we enjoyed the entire ride. My wife and I enjoyed the quiet time viewing the scenery as we slowly move along the river.

We took a guided cycle tour from Li Village to the river and there hopped on a bamboo raft for a most pleasant two hour drift down the river. Our guide was waiting at the end point for us with our bikes.

We rafted up and down the river for ~2 hours, with an hour stop for lunch at the place from which the 20 yuan bill photo was taken. The scenery is dramatic.

Loved our 1 hr bamboo rafting on Yulong river last week. Each raft is for 2 people, the water is VERY calm and even though it was quite busy (as it was a Sunday) it was still considerably relaxing and just really nice. We preferred this to our raft "cruise" on the Li River as these rafts on Yulong do... More

First, I was sceptical about the ride, but the scenery was amazing!!! Highly recommend it... The ride is easy going, and at a good pace. Lots of others around but doesn't bother you. Have your camera ready at all times...

Absolutely breathtaking!! Bamboo rafting down an ancient river. This trip captures the essences of the area ... National Geographic style. (Karst Mountains, Rice paddies, Water buffalo, and more) Even more impressive than the Li River raft. Highly recommended.
