Visited the canyon along with a group of Chinese colleagues as part of their Department team building exercise. We did have a tour guide and luckily for me my colleagues translated for me. Signage is not consistent, warning signs did include English translations but many of the information signs were not.

Experience starts at the ticket booth and the first stop is a the boat launch, at the bottom of a very steep hill. The first boat we boarded had mechanical problems, staff quickly split the passengers into two groups and each boarded a much smaller boat. The boat took us to the current trail head which is about 15 minutes up river. The ride was pleasant and you get a very good look at the widest part of the canyon. As you might imagine, the canyon narrows as you head up stream.

Once arriving at the next pier, be prepared to climb quite a few stairs. A word of warning, the walking surfaces along the trail vary in texture and can be wet and slippery. Make sure you wear appropriate shoes, street shoes would be very dangerous.

The trail consist of pebbled walkways, areas carved into stone, and concrete decks attached to the side of the canyon. You will lacrosse the stream three times ion three different types of bridges: swaying suspension, bamboo fixed, and standard plank. Be prepared for the ride of your life if the people ahead of you want to test the swaying ability of the first bridge.

There a number of areas of phot spots, some rock formations that resemble animals, and for us a real treat- a wild monkey. Locals say the only about thirty left in the canyons are so to see one is a real treat.

As you walk along the walking surface does change. Slipping hazards are plentiful so it is necessary to keep your eyes on the walking path. There are a number of employees stationed along the way to ensure you stay away from hazard areas and to render aid if needed.

The walk up stream in the canyon is about 3.5 km. There is a small museum and snack stand located at the end, then it is turn around and head back to the pier for the return boat ride. Once you are back at the main dock, you have a nice long, steep walk to the exit. There are benches conveniently located along the way if you need a rest.

It was a really nice experience, the staff has done a good job making the experience all about the beauty of the canyon, it was a nice way to spend a few hours on a Sunday morning.

It is an absolute must to visit. We went there on Chinese New Year's day. We thought that it's going to be packed, however the amount of people was very acceptable for such a touristic place in China. The river is amazing and very relaxing, a great place if you'd like to experience proper Chinese nature. Good thing is that they've got a small snack shack midway, the river is endless so make sure you're well prepared.

The only sad part is that we forgot our bathing suits, although swimming is not allowed, would've loved to take a plunge in the pristine waters of the river.

Great walk. Lots of beautiful views. Plenty of places to take pictures. While getting there by taxi is easy it is difficult to get back as there are no taxis.You have to pay a local to drive you back.

Want to have a hiking day in the Canyon but park is closed since 26.07.2017 and not clear when it will open again.
So better check before you start if the park opened again

October 1 in china is national independence day. Therefore, wherever you go is crowded... Tip in traveling to this scenery or in china is to be there at the site as first batch of the group to avoid long queue on d road,ticket both and at the entrance. We're one of at the first batch so when we're done to hiking & river adventure... The thousands of people are arriving and yes we enjoy it because, we escaped the crowd n traffic jam.
