“Torrent”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

helmet, life jacket, torrent in mountain, ice cold river water, wet out. Different with other gently driftings in Guilin, ready for falling into the water every time. The attraction is in Xingping town,about 30KM from Yangshuo. Whole length of drifting river is about 6KM for about 2 hours drifting.

Be prepared to get wet and have the time of your life on this fast trip down river in a plastic dinghy.

“You shouldn't miss this. It's just too much fun!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

They put you in a boat without paddles.
The boat follows the river while you hold on to the handles. The track is modified so the boats don't get stuck and your safety is more or less guaranteed. The track is very wild and full of drops. The boat has holes in the floor so the water can flow out :D. We couldn't stop laughing during the descent. It is just too much fun. You have no control over the boat whatsoever. At first we thought it was stupid that they made all the boats descent at the same time, but it is actually really fun to bump into one another.
We booked it at our hotel for 240¥/pp for the long drift. It's not cheap but totally worth it.
The bus from yangshuo to the river was included in the price and it took about 70-90 minutes to get to the site. Once you arrive you can change your clothes and hire a locker for 30 ¥. From there you take another 10-minute bus that brings you to the start of the drift where you get a helmet and a life jacket. After about 2 hours the boats arrive at your locker where you can put on new clothes. At this time you will be very happy...

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

so much fun. Seriously, we were a little worried and we almost didnt do it, but im so glad we did. On west street, near Mcd and KFC, there is a tour operator which sells the 1 1/2 hour ride for 160 per person inc pick up and drop off from your hotel or the 2 hour ride for 200 per person.
The scariest thing about this is the ride to the place.
DEFINITELY DO THIS, SO MUCH FUN!

“So fun!!!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Definitely do this. It's kind of annoying to get there-- car ride, waiting in line, etc but its fun! Keep your helmet on! It's the best water ride! Little pricey but it's worth it.
