This experience is different from the Li river rafting because the boatman manually directs the bamboo rafts whereas in Li river the rafts/PVC tubes are driven by motor. We went in the morning but by the time we reached, the sun was already bright and sunny. Bring along your sunscreen because I didn't and was a little burnt.
We opted for the northern part of the river but I still felt that the route was a little touristy with 'booths' along the river selling food/drinks/souvenirs which really distracted us from the otherwise beautiful scenery. While I feel that the Li river rafting has more to offer in terms of scenery, yulong river waters are clearer and u can see the mountain reflections more easily. However if u were to choose one, I'd say go for the Li river rafting along yangdi-xingping.
