I booked the tour through the hostel with no issues, I paid 150 yuan and then there was a further 25 yuan to pay for the bus to take you to the rafting on the river. The lady at the drifting office was friendly however she didn't explain anything to me about the trip/ getting back on the bus ect.... More

We went there during the Dragon Boat Festival so the place was absolutely PACKED! But even if we had to float around in our little dingy for 30 minutes in the beginning, it was so much fun. As everyone else here, we laughed all the way from they pushed us down the first fall until we ended the trip about... More

Me and my gf had a great time doing the rafting. Have done a few of this in different places. This is one of the best little more dangerous then others I have been on as drops are bigger.

Great fun on this river. Lots of big drops and exciting rapids and quite a bit longer than I thought.

So much fun and absolutely beautiful views. It felt so serene going through the beautiful forest and enjoying the sun in a raft. Highly recommend going with friends who like to have fun :)

Drifting is like rafting without the paddles. You basically hold on and get swept down the Longjin River. Guide help push you along the way. There were about 50 or so crazy Chinese students with me and a couple of westerners. I was never boring. The cost for me was 200 yuan for the bus and drifting. However, there are... More

Wasn't really sure what to expect, but worth the money. They have lockers to keep your things, or you can buy waterproof pouches there. Two to a raft or you can go on your own. A lot of fun was had trying to get my partner to go down backwards down the rapids. Really good, clean fun!

This was the most fun I have had in a a long time! I was laughing the whole way down. I thought it would be some lame floating ride , instead I spent the next 1.5 hours going down 7m drops, screaming and get thrown around. Definitely would not be legal in the more developed countries but that's what we... More
