The Yulong River Valley is considered to be one of the most popular sight-seeing spots amongst travellers in Yangshuo. The Yulong River - which translates to "meeting the dragon river" - is a tributary of China's Li River and winds its way over 35 kilometres, across tiny villages along the way - such as the towns of Putao, Litang, Chaolong, Yima and Gaotian. Unlike the Li River, the Yulong River area is a very tranquil and peaceful region with no motorised boat traffic. The valley area is very fertile and it is not uncommon for travellers to note several rice fields in the region as well as fields of pomelos and tangerines. For outdoor enthusiast who would love to explore the surroundings on a refreshing bike ride or hike, a visit to Yulong River Valley is recommended.
